Isabel Marant for H&M Lookalikes at Forever 21

Forever 21 gets inspired by Isabel Marant

While browsing Forever 21's Cyber Monday deals (which, surprise, surprise, are still going on today), I noticed a bunch of Southwest-inspired pieces that looked a lot like a certain budget-designer collab that H&M put out not too long ago, namely the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection. A quick Google search confirmed that I was not alone in my suspicions (and actually quite late to the party - back on November 22, reported that Forever 21 had "ripped off" the Isabel Marant for H&M line, even going so far as to launch a Bohemian-themed collection on the same day). This isn't the first time a budget-friendly collab has been knocked off, and it certainly won't be the last. I can't say I wasn't excited by my Forever 21 finds seeing as how I thought the H&M collection was way too expensive and didn't end up purchasing anything from the line.

In case you forgot, here's what the Isabel Marant for H&M collection looked like:
