According to the LAT, the already sold out $1395 horse-printed t-shirt from the Maison Martin Margiela spring ’08 collection has been found to be nearly identical to artist David Penfound’s “Summoning the Storm” image that he painted back in 1998 which is approved for reproducing at The Mountain for $19.95. Although the images are not completely identical, “there are some differences in Margiela’s design (instead of an Indian chief in full-feathered headdress looking toward the heavens, summoning the storm, the Margiela tee has a cluster of rocks covering in the foreground). But just compare the drama, details and style — and draw your own conclusions”. Not surprising as this happens in fashion on a regular basis. Thanks to reader Jazzy for the tip!
