Kim Kardashian’s apparently pays ‘homage’ to designers by copying their designs
Kim Kardashian is in a bit of hot water after being called out for some kopykat designs.
The Kids Supply, the children’s clothing line from Kardashian and Kanye West, is under fire from Instagram account Diet Prada after it pointed out the similarities between a few of Kids Supply’s products and that of major design houses. Except, according to Kim herself, it’s all intentional.
“Just when we thought you may have rocked the glitter better than Bey, you had to go and rip an extremely limited edition Comme des Garçons x Kosho & Co souvenir jacket for your Kids Supply line AND that one-of-a-kind custom sequin Vetements dress made specially for North,” the account read, tagging Kardashian and the clothing line. “Great message for the little ones!”
As you can see in the Instagram album below, Kardashian’s pieces are almost identical.
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 intended to be a homage.
“The idea behind Kids Supply is to give people the opportunity to purchase things that would never be available for children otherwise,” the representative said.
“We decided 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.
The representative also explained that the bomber jacket was inspired by “a mixture of some our favorite souvenir jacket art.”
“We have been collecting for years and have archive of them. We named it the Rei Jacket out of the utmost respect for her.”
The only good thing about all of this is that 100 percent of the proceeds of the jacket and sequin dress would be going to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, so homage or cover-up, at least some kids are getting helped in the process.
