I was reading Refinery29's daily fashion page, when I saw their post about Justin Bieber's new perfume, "Someday", which is pictured above. It's a sweet little container, and I can just picture the many tween fans thinking that its little red heart is so perfect.
But the email was asking, is this a rip-off from Marc Jacob's Lola perfume's packaging? Here it is.
I'm not exactly sure. I do see similarities, but the question reminds me of beadmaking or any other artistic endeavor's age old question...what is inspiration versus copying or a knockoff? If the rule of thumb is three things need to be obviously different, I see that right away. But I also see the obvious similarities too.
So, I'm asking you. How would you call this one?
