Alexander Wang calls out Philipp Plein for copying his runway show

If you thought the Plein Sport show looked familiar, it's because you've seen it before

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.
