At a hefty $1,995, we can't all afford Proenza Schouler's droolalicious PS1 Bag. But, for those with a budget, Target's very similar Mossimo messenger bag may, for $34.99, but the next best thing. Or is it? In a post on Cathy Horyn's New York Times blog today, Proenza designers Jack McCollough...

The PS1 Proenza Schouler's PS1 became an instant "it bag." As such, it's been knocked off countless times. We've devoted several "Adventures in Copyright" to PS1 knockoffs, including ones by Gap, Zara and some label called Navoh. Cathy Horyn noticed that the fashion blogosphere was buzzing...

It seems Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are somewhat torn between luxury 'glamping' and communing with nature in the real, non-Vogue-endorsed sense. The designers were profiled in the New York Times this week at their rustic retreat in the Berkshires, the very same...

Has British department store Primark knocked off for their spring collection? Photo evidence indicates it's very likely. Our eagle-eyed friends at The Fashion Law were the first to see thistweet of a London Primark's windows. Though the photo itself is a bit blurry, a few designs are...

where do we even begin? It's one thing for Kris Van Assche to knock-off his own sneaker design for Dior Homme SS10 and introduce a version for his SS11 collection. But it's quite another when a streetwear brand like Rockadelic (who?) to blatantly copy what remains one of the most ingenious...

>> Designers, like us all, have their fair share of introductory meetings they wish they could do over — as I recall, Gareth Pugh wished he hadn't first been introduced to Anna Wintour backstage with beer in hand. But it sounds like Proenza Schouler's Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough may...

I spotted this little gem of a knock off while shopping down Myrtle Ave in Ridgewood NY. I mean I know that people think Lady Gaga is on one but flat out calling her perfume Crazy Lady?! When the name is plain and simple just "Fame"! That!! is a read ladies and gentlemen. They could've at...

And lucky for you, the boys of Proenza Schouler, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, have downsized their in-demand it-bag to create the PS1 Wallet, in brand spankin' new color ways. The wallet retains the satchel's classic flap front façade and is perfect for carrying the everyday...

Rather than hoping someone returns what you want in your size, is faking it really that bad? No matter your stance on knock-offs, some of these are just incredible. I guarantee you'll be stumped by at least one. Click through the slideshow and see if you can tell which product is the...
