Diet Prada Accuses Kanye West of Copying Another Artist for NSFW #SUPERMOON Ads


Diet Prada, the cult Instagram account that calls out copycat culture in fashion, has accused Kanye West of ripping off artist Rita Minissi in his latest YEEZY campaign #SUPERMOON.

The campaign, which was unveiled last week, was shot by photographer Eli Russell Linnetz and features well-known Instagram stars such as Kristen Noel Crawley and the Clermont Twins.

Pointing out similarities between the recent ads and a 2015 series of photographs by Minissi, Diet Prada said: “It’s pretty messed up when you consider the original work by Rita Minissi explores identity and was inspired by dealing with personal trauma and a resulting desire to reconnect with her own body.”

Another day, another Kanye rip. The just released Yeezy Season 6 campaign lensed by @elirusselllinnetz bears a striking similarity to this 2015 series by @thingspowerthemselves . It’s pretty messed up when you consider the original work by Rita Minissi explores identity and was inspired by dealing with personal trauma and a resulting desire to reconnect with her own body. Will Kanye own up to it this time, or will he be blaming others like he did with the Tony Spackman sketch not so long ago?

The caption continues, “Will Kanye own up to it this time, or will he be blaming others like he did with the Tony Spackman sketch not so long ago?”

This is the second time Diet Prada has accused West of plagiarism within the last two months. In May it said sketches posted on Kanye’s Twitter account were those of Tony Spackman, an ex-Nike designer from 2000 to 2009 who is now the design director at Givenchy.

Ever-controversial Kanye is no stranger to digging in the far reaches of the internet for inspiration.  Is Ye just showing his creative process with inspiration images or claiming the work to be his own?  Photoshopping out the title of the sketch in the top left corner is pretty much a dead giveaway lol.  The original by designer @tonyspackman was done in 2005 for a @nike collection called "Living Apparel" which eventually became "Nike React", a running collection grounded in freedom of movement and human comfort.  Can we just call it Yee💤y now? 😴 • #yeezy #kanyewest #kanye #kimye #theft #inspiration #illustration #design #fashiondesign #sportswear #streetwear #athleisure #nike #streetstyle #running #nikerunning #hypebeast #highsnobiety #snobshots #wiwt #ootd #copycat #knockoff #wtf #dietprada

Earlier this year it was also revealed that a company called Jordan Outdoor Enterprises had filed a lawsuit against West’s YEEZY for copying a distinct camouflage pattern.

Neither Minissi nor West has yet to respond to the accusation. Stay tuned for more information.
