When it's detected, however, you just look like an asshole.

I don't know about you, but I fail to see a shred of coincidence here. Gaultier's always maintained a derivative vision, but this is just embarrassing. The French government should bestow their Haute Couture grants upon true innovators, not theives. Call it a "trend", call it a "current look". I call it thievery, and it's not right.
