Zara rolled out a sweatshirt that's a dead ringer for Reformation's famous $118 "Cindy Crawford" sweatshirt, The Fashion Law reports. Both sweatshirts are grey, both have plain blocky lettering, and both have famous '90s supermodels' names written across the wearer's chests.
But Zara's gray sweatshirt says "Elle Macpherson," not Cindy Crawford, so yep, it's totally different. Not similar at all.
Not only is this not particularly creative, The Fashion Law believes Zara could be violating right of publicity laws and possibly trademark infringement, if Macpherson didn't approve the sweatshirt.
Meanwhile, Cindy Crawford was so cool with Reformation's version that she wore it on a 2013 cover of Muse magazine, she modeled for Ref's re-issue of the piece last year, and Instagrammed her daughter wearing the shirt.
