Kim Kardashian Accused Of Plagiarising High Fashion Brands

Kim Kardashian Accused Of Plagiarising High Fashion Brands

Fashion nerds flew into a frenzy on Monday, claiming that Kim Kardashian had ripped off ultra chic designers Rei Kawakubo and Demna Gvasalia for her children's line, Kids Supply.

In response to the accusations, a Kids Supply representative told Page Six that despite both the jacket and dress not being on sale yet, it was meant to be a homage.

As you can see in the Instagram album below, Kardashian's pieces are nearly identical.

HuffPost reached out to Kardashian, Comme des Garçons and Vetements for comment and will update accordingly.

In a lengthy post @diet_prada laid out a visual case that Kim's designs are anything but original. "Great message for the little ones!" In a statement to Page Six, a representative for Kids Supply stated that any accusations of copying are simply a "misunderstanding".

The children's black jacket with an eagle and "live free with strong will" was alongside the original Comme des Garçons jacket designed by Kawakubo.

Regarding the sequin dress mentioned in Diet Prada's social-media post, the representative said, "We chose to release the Demna dress after making one on our own for North because it got such a great reaction and an overflow of people wanting it for their own children".

"We chose to release the Demna dress after making one on our own for North because it got such a great reaction and an overflow of people wanting it for their own children", explaining the name came from one of Kardashian and North's "mommy and me" moments. "We named it the Rei Jacket out of the utmost respect for her".

And apparently, '100% of the proceeds from both pieces will be donated to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles'.

Though Kim Kardashian's children's line has been greatly inspired by pieces in her own closet as well as pieces she has had made for her own children over the years, this seems to be the most blatant theft of creative ideas that we have seen since she started selling her Calabasas line. Charity aside, these all but confirmed homages aren't a great look.
