All rise for the case of Mango Vs McCartney!
Actually, it’s OK, you can sit back down: there’s really no case to be answered here – this is a straightforward case of “designer inspiration” as opposed to “blatant copying”, and while you can clearly see where the inspiration from this Mango dress has come from, there are enough differences between it and the Stella McCartney original to make it very obvious which is which.
Unfortunately for Mango, the side-by-side comparison doesn’t really do their creation any favours. We’re sure it probably looks nice on, but next to the Stella, it does look a little… well, cheap, really.
IS it cheap? Well, it’s £34.90, so we’d say yes, it is. As for the McCartney dress, you’ll pay £1285 for the privilege: ouch.
