I'm not original!



English Nederlands

This afternoon I did some shopping with my daughter and she wanted to go to H&M (of course, she's 14). Looking at the tops she took out the above top and said: "Look mum, that's what you made on your blouse." And the neckline indeed has exactly the same origami folding I used on my blouse. It must be in the air!
But I didn't buy it, the picture is from their website.
Vanmiddag wat gewinkeld met m'n dochter en ze wilde (natuurlijk, ze is 14) bij de H&M naar binnen. Uit het rek met de tops haalt ze opeens de top hierboven en zegt: "Mam, dit is precies wat jij gedaan hebt met je blouse." En ze heeft gelijk, in de halslijn is exact hetzelfde origami gebruikt als ik in m'n blouse gedaan heb. Het zit blijkbaar in de lucht.
Maar ik heb het shirtje niet gekocht, de foto is van hun website.

En wat leuk ook wat reacties uit Nederland te krijgen: Joy, Yvonne en Ruby, dank voor jullie reacties. Hartstikke leuk, het helpt om in het Nederlands te blijven schrijven.

  2. I bet the H&M designers read your tutorial on how to make the origami folds! Didn't they say it's only a matter of weeks between the time they design something to the time it's on the salesfloor?

  3. Sigrid, I have the same thought, you started the trend.

  4. Isn't it nice to know that you're on top or even ahead of the trends and you're not paying for an ill-fitting or cheaply made garment as well?
