Kim Kardashian Gets Shade For Plagiarizing Sunglasses Design For Own Collection
By Izza Sofia, 11 Jul 2019
Kim Kardashian is under fire for apparently copying Emilio Pucci’s sunglasses for her own eyewear collection.
Back in April, the reality television star debuted a collection of sunglasses with Berlin-based designer Carolina Lemke. Months on, Instagram account Diet Prada has noticed that one of the eyewear designs is similar to those of Emilio Pucci, one of which Kardashian actually wore back in August 2018.
Diet Prada called out Kardashian in an Instagram post, displaying a photo of the socialite in Emilio Pucci sunglasses versus one of her modeling the “knockoff” pair from her own collection.
Both versions feature neon rims and dark lenses, looking pretty similar to each other indeed.
“Funny how [the] Emilio Pucci shades you wore in August 2018 ended in your eyewear collaboration launched in April this year,” Diet Prada captioned the post.
Kim Kardashian recently sued fashion brand Missguided for ripping off her looks, and now Diet Prada has called her out over a seemingly hypocritical move.

Hey @kimkardashian , so it’s def not cool to use someone else’s name and likeness when promoting knockoffs, as evidenced by your win against @missguided , but should it be ok to use your OWN name and likeness to promote them? Lol. Funny how those SS17 @emiliopucci shades you wore in August 2018 ended up in your eyewear collab with @carolinalemkeberlin that launched in April this year. Hypocrisy at its finest! ✨ • #kimkardashian #kardashian #pucci #emiliopucci #kuwtk #sunnies #shade #sunglasses #eyewear #neon #neongreen #neonyellow #kuwtk #kimkardashianwest #shapewear #carolinalemke #collab #wiwt #ootd #accessories #mfw #milanfashionweek #sunglassesfashion #sporty #missguided #collaboration #lol #dietprada
