Are High streets taking a step too close?

So we all know that the high streets designs consist of  of designs watered down from designers (as well as their own) but has H&M this season taken it all a bit too close?

Looks very similar to Dirty Pretty Things...

looks suspiciously like Damaris’s SS12 range.

Signature strapping is also being used...

What’s happened to inspiration rather than imitation?
