GILI Sweater cape TSV is a replica?

Is this GILI cape a replica of the “Military Style Poncho “ sold for $44 on Lisa Robertson’s website a few days ago? I know she created GILI so I was wondering if she still involved with the line. Thank you

In all likelihood they were both manufactured in the same factory (individual label slapped on).  I used to live in S.Korea and they made a bunch of this stuff and that's the way it worked there.  I also doubt that L.R. did any real designing (maybe she did "pick" some of the designs).

LR has taken the cape off of her shopping site.  Usually she leaves the pic up and has a sold out sign on the item

So I guess according to you I have lousy taste, because I really like the way it looks. There really is something for everyone -- and we really should respect the live and let live thing, huh?

No, she did not. Q created the brand and she just happened to be there when it was launched. 

 

If anything was replicated, it came from Iman who did a very similar design a few years ago and called it a poncho.
