Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Proenza Schouler & Three Floor

Proenza Schouler's embroidered bird sweaters and jackets have been incredibly popular this season, fitting nicely into the oriental trend. I was, however, disappointed to find that the supposedly fashion-forward brand Three Floor had taken a little too much of PS's design and put it on their own jacket. So, out of the following four, three are PS and one is Three Floor, but which one?! (The answer is at the bottom of the post)

If you ask me, all four items look like they are from a PS collection. In fashion, it is inspiration, not imitation, that is the sincerest form of flattery. Copying the aesthetic of another person's design so closely is creatively lazy, and I would encourage everyone, where possible, to avoid buying such items and instead shop at brands that are more creatively innovative.

The answer is...number three! Did you guess right?
