Plein copied Wang?

New York Fashion Week has certainly been statement-making and for Alexander Wang, he took to his personal Instagram account to make a huge one: he's accusing Philipp Plein's January 2017 Plein Sport show during Milan Fashion Week (Men's) of looking scarily similar to his Alexander Wang x H&M runway show in 2014. Wang decided to call out Plein in the most millennial way: with a video meme.

In the side-by-side videos, the evidence speaks for itself. From the stuntmen and race track-inspired runway to the very similar athletic designs, it's like a throwback not even 'Hot Mugshot Guy' Jeremy Meeks (who walked at Plein's more recent New York Fashion Week AW17 show) can distract us from.
