Kim Kardashian is the latest star to come under criticism for plagiarism. Kim K’s children’s label, The Kids Supply, was called out by Diet Prada, the Instagram account drawing attention to copycat culture in fashion.
Two designs came under scrutiny: the “Rei Bomber” and the “Demna dress,” both of which are essentially child-sized remakes of COMME Des GARÇONS and Vetements’ designs.
@kimkardashian ! Just when we thought you may have rocked the glitter better than Bey, you had to go and rip an extremely limited edition @commedesgarcons x Kosho & Co souvenir jacket for your @thekidssupply line AND that Tay Swift @vetements_official dress you knocked for North. Great message for the little ones! #kimdesgarcons #letreiknow #letdemnaknow #kimkardashian #thekidssupply #souvenirjacket #sukajan #vetements #commedesgarcons #demnagvasalia #reikawakubo #streetwear #copyat #knockoff #dietprada #sequins #sparkle #kkw
However, because the brand name checks the designers in question, a representative for The Kids Supply says that the pieces are mere “homages,” and not copies. If you cast your mind back, Gucci used a similar line when accused of plagiarizing Harlem tailor Dapper Dan for its Cruise 2018 collection.
