Bikini plagiarism is a thing. Who knew? Not Lara Bingle.
Aussie model/Instagram Queen Ms Bingle has been warned: Your Cotton On bikini designs are unoriginal. Lisa Marie Fernandez is the swimwear designer with her bikini strings in a twist, and she’s taking on a number of Aussie swimwear brands including Bingle’s. She’s also got her eye on Triangl and NPL.
Fernandez was the first person to use neoprene in swimmers, which is that special stretchy fabric scuba gear’s made of. She says she was “inspired by the sleek athleticism of scuba gear.”
So basically, yeah, Bikini Plagiarism.
This is what she said in a warning to Bingle: “Australia is a wonderful country but since we are all interacting on a global level now. . . and due to Instagram and everything being seen immediately, the rest of our global fashion community will not take Australia seriously if they continue to do this.”
Look, we can only assume this high-fashion bikini lady has her bikini strings in a twist because Lara’s Cotton On black one-piece costs $30, but hers will set you back a whopping $399.
Damn that Bingle. Releasing such affordable, classic style swimwear to Australian for swimming in Australia. How very dare she.
Here’s the swimsuit we think Fernandez is talking about. And Lara’s similar shot. What do you reckon: can anyone own the creative rights to a plain black one-piece?
