Tory Burch and her ex-husband, Chris, have been fighting a legal battle that’s the talk of the fashion industry. Her people say that his new line, C. Wonder, shamelessly copies her eponymous one. Meanwhile, his supporters say that Chris, a retail veteran who invested $2 million in Tory Burch, is the real mastermind behind the success of the brand.
Tory Burch’s company sent us photos from the countersuit against Chris, which show how aesthetically similar his boutiques are to hers.
We explored both companies’ websites and found that many of the products look nearly identical. But C. Wonder’s products are much cheaper, meaning that it is essentially selling the same things for less.
Decide for yourself whether the similarities are the result of preppy inspiration or blatant copying.
