Fashion Faceoff

Dolce and Gabbana Menswear Fall/Winter 2009

Armani Menswear Fall/Winter 2008

As many of you may have heard, there has been a little disagreement between Armani and Dulce & Gabbana over a pair of male trousers. Milans' Men's Fashion Week Fall/Winter '09 just wrapped up and Georgio accused the italian duo of copying his patchwork pants from last season.

Surely we still have much to learn, but definitely not from him

There hasn't been a dispute of a copyright when it comes to fashion since Ralph Lauren and Yves Saint Laurent battled in court over the issue of female tuxedos more than a decade ago.
