Does Rodarte's menswear line look a bit...familiar? Fashion Indie dug up this comment on Opening Ceremony's blog: "I’m gagging at these prices!!! I do love how Rodarte has been able to take the same knit Junya Watanabe did for Fall 2006, repackage it and sell it for thousands of dollars (a semester’s tuition btw). I’ll be looking on Etsy for a knockoff of the knockoff. ps: Making the same dress every season can only get you so far." Mean! But given the stellar year Rodarte had in 2009, we guess it's not a surprise that the backlash has begun. [Fashion Indie]
