this is too blatant

Usually, its Forever 21 or H&M coping off other designers clothes. Heck, F21 even copied the Proenza Schouler for Target line. But Marc Jacobs, just basically slapped "Marc Jacobs 1984" onto a scarf made in Harjedalen, Sweden by Gosta Olofsson in the 1950s. Olofsson celebrated the village by designing a limited quantity of scarves depicting jovial bears and quaint churches. Olofsson has attempted to contact MJ, to no avail...yet. Hm, I wonder how MJ will talk himself out of this one...maybe a sincere blog comment a la Cathy Horyn?

I know he talked about being 'uninspired' for this season, but surely that doesn't justify plagiarism? (is it an SS08 piece or AW08?)
