Virgil Abloh Gets Accused Of Copying Japanese Designer’s Striking Hoodie Design
By Izza Sofia, 12 Jun 2018
Virgil Abloh is in the public eye a lot lately. That goes without saying that whenever he unveils something ‘new’, people notice.
Diet Prada took to Instagram to call out Abloh for copying a design from Japanese label ANREALAGE. ANREALAGE is known for creating garments that feature quirky silhouettes, such as its hoodie that is made of geometrical shapes.
Abloh has created an exact replica of the hoodie with its distinct triangular shape for a “pattern cutting challenge.” Diet Prada has posted a side-by-side comparison of Abloh’s creation and ANREALAGE’s piece which you can view below.
Previously, Abloh’s ‘MARKERAD’ collection with IKEA came under fire as his chair design looks strikingly similar to Paul McCobb’s.
Virgil, your caption a few weeks ago said this was part of a “challenge” at @off____white . A challenge to do what, exactly? Make a master copy of an @anrealage_official piece without crediting it?
