Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s designer clothing line for children is accused of ripping off designs from two major fashion houses. 

Diet Prada, a popular Instagram account dedicated to people “knocking each other off,” called out the two earlier this week for allegedly copying designs for their Kids Supply line.

The accusations center around a jacket from Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons and a dress from Demna Gvasalia’s Vetements line. 

“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,” reads a caption under a post that compares Kardashian and West’s designs with the two fashion lines.

But a representative for Kids Supply told Page Six that the designs are not copycat pieces, but instead an homage to the two designers. 

“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, adding that all profits from the two items would be given to charity. 

“We decided to release the Demna dress after making one on our own for North [Kardashian’s daughter] 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 spokesperson added, “The Rei jacket was 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.” 

Kardashian later echoed the representative’s comments on the matter, tweeting that 100 percent of the proceeds were going to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
