Balenciaga is the latest high fashion house to take blows and accusations of stealing and copying designs. You may recall that Gucci has been under fire for the last month for taking influence from Dapper Dan and again yesterday from two graphic designers in Australia and New Zealand. The call-out of Balenciaga thieving the Ruff Ryders logo in its 2018 spring/summer collection comes from Swizz Beatz via Instagram and the former member is spot on.
