Double Take: Urban Outfitters and Evo Noche Pillowcases

Call me crazy, but did Urban Outfitters just totally snake these new illustrated-pillowcase designs from Bay Area indie designers Evo Noche? (If so, it wouldn't be the first time in recent memory.)

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Evo Noche: Satellite, Adjust, and Cage cases ($16 each)

Urban Outfitters: Fancy Chandelier, Guitar and Amp, and Dreaming of Paris cases ($24 per pair)

Stark, black-on-white color scheme: Check.

Sweetly punk, vaguely industrial vibe: Check.

Pen-and-ink-style illustrations of objects not normally seen on bedding: Check.

I leave the verdict to you.

I followed this link from Making it Lovely a while back; It's a record of many of UO's rip-offs.

Oh goodness; you're so right. I'd call that a bona fide rip-off.

Too bad I love the pillowcases just the same. Ahhhh, I'm such a sucker for cheap and good design!

Yeesh. They're shameless.

Wow, I am suprised that you sleuths didn't do your homework. If you looked closer at the Urban Outfitters site you would notice that the pillow cases they have are by a company called Snooze City Designs(www.snoozecitydesigns.com). While Eva Noche does a couple of pillowcases along with other random home items, the SCD business is exclusivley pillow cases in black & white, as well as multi-colored prints. For your next double take you may want to let us all know who invented the screen printed T-Shirt and let us know about all the people who "Snaked"that.

Wow..!

I like both Evo Noche and Urban's pillowcases..! Both of them have super cool designs! But, Eva Noche charges $16 for one pillow case : (
...and Urban charges $24 for the set...!
Looks like Urban wins this one! I'm going to buy the Chandeliers!! and the guitar & amplifier for my brother!!!
XOXO,
Amy
