Is Gucci the new Ed Hardy? Oh dear.

I can't be the only one who sees a frightening resemblance between the211851_hxb1z_8360_full1_2 Gucci Heart Tattoo collection's "Love Gucci" change purse ($235; 25% of sales benefitBg21_suann67241_2 Unicef) and the Ed Hardy "True Love" Anna satchel, ($177.99).

Is it possible that Gucci designer Frida Giannini and Ed Hardy maestro Christian Audigier have more in common than a love for retro tattoo art -- which is now as annoyingly ubiquitous as oxygen? I don't like this one bit.
