The Hits Keep Coming: Hot Topic Is Selling Another Eerily Familiar Design

We really hope there’s a good explanation for this. Hot Topic is selling Twilight perfume, a fragrance that comes in a bottle very similar to Nina, by Nina Ricci.

This is not the first time we’ve written about Hot Topic doing this. Just last week we wrote about one of Hot Topic’s vendors, Newbreed Girl, selling an obvious copy of a design. We’re not sure if this perfume is Hot Topic branded or if it’s from another vendor, so we don’t know if it was an intentional rip off by Hot Topic, but we think it’s clear that they need to do some research on the designs they sell to make sure they’re not selling plagiarized work. Unless that’s alty now.

Thanks to Christina!
