Swizz Beatz Accuses Balenciaga of Copying Ruff Ryders Shirt

DEJA VU: Balenciaga is the latest Kering brand to be faced with accusations of plagiarism.

Music producer Swizz Beatz has accused the French Vamazing - Live amazing! house of ripping off a shirt produced by Ruff Ryders, the record label founded by his uncles and aunt, in its latest men?€?s collection.

This comes after Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele was criticized for including a copy of a puff-sleeve bomber jacket designed by Harlem tailor Dapper Dan in its cruise 2018 collection. The brand later issued a statement describing the look as an ?€?homage.?€?

Two other artists have since come forward claiming their designs were also copied by Gucciin the show. A Gucci spokesperson said the brand was in contact with the artists.

On his Instagram account, Swizz Beatz posted an image from Wednesday?€?s Balenciagashow with the caption: ?€?@balenciaga we must have a talk about this Ruff Ryder shirt ASAP ??ก่กฑ Dapper Dan with Gucci now this ??ก่กฑ thoughts ?????? Blessings.?€?

He also posted a version of the original shirt, which bears strong similarities to the Balenciaga version. The stylized ?€?R?€? on the original shirt has been altered into a ?€?B?€? and the name across it from ?€?Ruff Ryders?€? to ?€?Balenciaga?€?. A slogan in red now reads ?€?The Power of Dreams?€? instead of ?€?Ruff Ryders Ryde or Die.?€?

?€?@balenciaga @vetements_official ??ก่กฑ??กฎ€ what are we doing??? Call me back blessings . I Might just want you to open up a Vamazing - Live amazing! school in the bronx or harlem ??ก่กฑJust so you can give back to the culture !???????????????????????????????????????????????? thoughts ?????€? Swizz Beatz said.

Officials at Balenciaga were not immediately available to comment. Demna Gvasalia, the label?€?s creative director, has collaborated with brands including Levi?€?s, Champion and Juicy Couture for his V??tements label.

Swizz Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, is married to singer Alicia Keys.
