look Nº 634 - The Story of a Ste@ling!

Acabou-se o Diário da Pandemia, os atrasos na vacinação, o coronavírus... estalou uma nova polémica em Portugal e, trata-se nada mais nada menos que um roubo, sim, um roubo!! Já consegui captar a vossa atenção? A história é a seguinte:

 No more The Pandemic Diary, the delays in vaccination, the coronavirus ... a new controversy broke out in Portugal, and this is nothing less than a stealing, yes, a stealing! Did I already catch your attention? The story is as follows:

A estilista americana Tory Burch tem à venda no seu site uma camisola que segundo ela foi uma inspiração mexicana. Roubo!! Crime!! Porque esta camisola trata-se, não de uma inspiração da estilista, mas de uma cópia descarada de uma camisola do artesanato de uma comunidade piscatória portuguesa, da cidade da Póvoa de Varzim!
The American stylist Tory Burch has a sweater on sale on her website that according to her was a Mexican inspiration. Theft!! Crime!! Because this sweater is not an inspiration of the stylist, but a shameless sweater copy from the handicrafts of a Portuguese fishing community in the city of Póvoa de Varzim in Portugal!

O estado português através do Ministério da Cultura accionou os meios judiciais no sentido de combater a apropriação abusiva da camisola poveira por parte da estilista americana. Foi interposto junto de um tribunal em Nova York uma acção judicial para exigir a reparação dos danos para a Cultura Portuguesa. Mas, o mais curioso tem a ver com o preço a que esta camisola está a ser vendida no site da Tory Burch, como podem ver na foto a camisola custa 695€, sabem quanto ela custa em Portugal? Custa 90€!!! Mas, a história ainda não acabou aqui!!!
The Portuguese state, through the Ministry of Culture, has taken legal action to combat the abusive appropriation of the folk sweater by the American stylist. A lawsuit was filed in a court in New York to demand damage reparation to Portuguese culture. But, the most curious thing has to do with the price at which this sweater is being sold on the Tory Burch website, as you can see in the photo the sweater costs 695 €, do you know how much it costs in Portugal? It costs 90€!!! But, the story is not over yet!!! 

 Tory Burch Website

A estilista americana já veio pedir desculpa pelo sucedido e fez a respectiva correcção no site, dizendo ser uma inspiração de uma camisola portuguesa. Como podem ver na foto estas são as verdadeiras camisolas de artesanato português. Agora pergunto-vos, acham que a camisola é uma inspiração ou uma cópia??
The American stylist has already apologized for what happened and made the respective correction on the website, saying it was an inspiration for a Portuguese sweater. As you can see in the photo, the real Portuguese handcrafted sweaters. Now I ask you, do you think the sweater is an inspiration or a copy ??

  8. É de lamentar este tipo de situações, mas é de facto um roubo.

    Boa semana.

  9. This is the way how they make very easy money, even they have done a crime.

    You look so gorgeous in a sweet dress with lace. These Wisteria flowers are so awesome. They grow here, but they are not plenty.

    Take care, Marisa!

  10. WOW! That really IS a scandal! That was clearly a very brazen theft, and then they lied about it.
    What nerve!
    I am glad that the Portuguese Ministry of Culture is standing up to and shaming the thieves,
    not letting them get away scot-free with their brazen theft.
    They need to be deterred from doing that kind of thing again.

    I love the look of that Elizabetta Franchi Lace Mini-Dress!
    You look fabulous wearing it!

  11. It's a very pretty dress, I heard a similar story about Mexican heritage appropriation. Anyhow, you look fab in it

  12. I can't believe it, the sweater is an exact copy. It clearly wasn't inspired by the Portuguese sweater, but the whole design was stolen. It is terrible that there are designs who steal from other cultures. I hope this Portuguese community will win in court.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    You look fantastic in this outfit. Love the pop of red!

  13. Can't believe, such story!
    That sweater is exactly the same of the Portuguese one, no doubt!
    I'm not againt using traditional designs for fashion, it's good to share different art and cultures around the world, but at least say it right!
    I'm glad that the government stand still for this appropriation, that could be a lesson for everyone!
    Very nice and modern outfit, Marisa, you always are on trend!

  14. É mais uma cópia e custa um balúrdio.

  16. Esta história é completamente absurda! Ainda bem que descobriram.
    Um beijinho,

  17. Os americanos têm a mania que são mais espertos que o resto do mundo.

  18. Love your outfit Marisa! Beautiful photos!

  19. Eu achei cópia e a estilista é muito cara de pau de falar que é inspiração dela.
    Big Beijos,

  20. That's a beautiful dress and you look fab in it!

  21. Já dizia o ditado: "Nada se origina, tudo se copia".

    Boa semana!

  22. I like the bold colourful dress, the pink and red are cute together! :)

    That top does look like a very expensive copy or your traditional top! I think it's nice and natural to be inspired by other pieces in fashion, but when you start to make inspired versions of traditional pieces that have a lot of meaning it's not a good idea.

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope that you have a lovely Easter Sunday :)
