Kim Kardashian Denies Stealing Designs For Her Children's Clothing Line

A rep for her company says the pieces were intended to be homages to the original designers.

Kim Kardashian has found herself in hot water yet again.

Page Six reports that Kardashian has been accused of stealing from designers Rei Kawakubo and Demna Gvasalia for her children's clothing line, Kid's Supply. Instagram account Diet Prada were among the first to call Kim out, posting side-by-side comparisons of Kawakubo's Comme des Garcons jacket and the Gvasalia sequined dress next to the Kid's Supply reproductions.

Both of the original pieces were made specifically for Kim's kids, North and Saint West, and a rep for Kid's Supply says that the replications — named the "Rei bomber" and the "Demna dress" — were intended to be homages to the artists who originally created them, with 100% of the proceeds from both pieces being donated to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.

"The idea behind Kids Supply is to give people the opportunity to purchase things that would never be available for children otherwise," the rep told Page Six. "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. We named it the Demna dress to pay homage to him as it was one of Kim and North's favorite mommy and me moments."

"The Rei jacket was a mixture of some our favorite souvenir jacket art," continued the statement. "We have been collecting for years and have archive of them. We named it the Rei Jacket out of the utmost respect for her."

This isn't the first time a KarJenner has been in hot water over swagger-jacking allegations; this year alone, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian were both accused of stealing from indie designers, while Kylie and Kendall Jenner's line has been blasted for cultural appropriation multiple times.
