Dress of the Day: Poppy print dress from Dolce & Gabbana

Poppy print dress This dress has been around for a while now, but given that Spring has only just started (here, at least), now seems like the perfect time to buy it – if, of course, you feel like dropping a few hundred dollars on a dress.

It’s by Dolce & Gabbana, and that bright poppy print has cheered us up no end after a long, hard working week – not to mention being a little more vibrant than the ditsy print that’s been turning up everywhere lately.

Get it at Net-a-Porter, and if you really love that print, you can also buy the shoes to match. Just don’t be tempted to wear them both at the same time…

    The dress is lovely, but I hate that D&G blatantly ripped of Marimekko on the print.. Unusual for such a big fashion brand to so obviously plagiarise another. I’d rather go for the Marimekko originals..

    The placement of those two flowers on the top and their ringed centers seem very strategically placed. Nothing says spring like aureoles!

    I’m really disappointed that you posted this obvious rip-off of Marimekko’s classic Unico print as the dress of the day. This should be listed under “Fashion Crimes”. Seriously.

    The dress print is blatantly ripped off from marimekko’s “Unikko” (poppy) pattern, and what’s more, after Marimekko’s taken legal action, D&G have countered by trying to CANCEL Marimekko’s copyright for their print they’ve been using decades before D&G was even establised. This kind of behaviour is so disgusting D&G will never be a respectable brand in my eyes again.
