Yes you read that correctly. Balenciaga, which is a great brand with great ideas, however is now under fire for straight up copying Ruff Ryder’s logo; and the person who called them out on it?
Fun Fact: Swizz Beatz was actually the producer behind the famous “Ruff Ryder’s Anthem.” Also, his uncle is the one who founded the group back in the late-80s.
You can see from the Balenciaga’s Spring 2018 Collection which debuted in Men’s Fashion Week just a couple of days ago in Paris
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that designers have taken from the hip hop culture. Just last month Gucci was accused of designing a jacket that looked too similar to that of Dapper Dan’s. Even though it does get quite tricky with this case because Dapper Dan was copying off of Gucci as well all the way back in 1989! Love to see how designers are ahead of their time!
