"Sex and the City" costumer Patricia Field is accusing the Material Girl of selling knockoffs of some "Vogue" snapback hats she specially designed and sells on her website. Allegedely Madge, a designer and fashion lover herself, copied the designs for merchandise sold on her recently completed MDNA world tour
A post on Field's official Tumblr blog features a picture of black caps emblazoned with the word Vogue -- as sold at Madonna's recent Madison Square Garden gigs in New York City -- along with a message titled "MADONNA STOLE OUR VOGUE HATS" (in all-caps for emphasis) that reads:
"During Madonna's performance of her 2012 World Tour to promote her latest CD, MDNA at Madison Square Garden this past year, one of our spies discovered... She is selling exact replicas of our Vogue hat as part of her tour merchandise!... Our own Patricia Field stylist, Hiraku, designed the snap back and we sell it as a T-shirt, headband and a beanie as well."
"They've been going like hotcakes here at the store and have become a staple of the Patricia Field brand this year. We get requests to send them to clients everywhere worldwide and people ask for them by name when they come into the store... Madonna is a thief! Do you really need an extra few thousand dollars?"
"Shame, shame for stealing from those that inspire you!... Are we right to be offended by this, or should we just forget about it and move on?"
Hmmm...what do you guys think?
