H&M Gets Caught Ripping off Gosha Rubchinskiy and Vetements

Risky business.

By //Fashion

Recently, high street brands have been facing large amounts of pressure in the world of plagiarism from designer labels with Forever 21 recently facing a lawsuit from Gucci for using its iconic blue-red-blue and green-red-green stripes. This time round, H&M has been spotted ripping off the unauthorised use of Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy and Vetements‘ signature aesthetics in its recent clothing line by customers such as Matthew Schneier.

Both labels have seen a surge in popularity in the current streetwear scene, and it is perhaps risky for H&M to play with fire right now considering it recently came into conflict with skate magazine Thrasher over the unauthorised use of the latter’s iconic flame logo.

For a closer look, scroll through the images above and compare with its designer counterparts found here:
