Kanye West's nightmarish return to the public eye has produced yet another controversy.
Givenchy design director Tony Spackman, who formerly held similar positions at Nike, took to his Instagram story to call out a strong resemblance between one of his own designs and a sketch in one of Kanye's recent tweets.
"When Kanye rips your 10 year old sketch and claims it," a frustrated Spackman wrote, later clarifying that the sketch was actually 13 years old. The designer included screenshots of a fall 2005 Nike "living apparel" concept from his own Cargo Collective site alongside Kanye's tweet, which appears to use the exact same image.
"This is where a Yeezy study for base layer starts. I'm so excited about our new design team," reads Kanye's tweet, which doesn't outright claim the sketch as his own. However, in Kanye's image, the "living apparel fall '05" note in the upper right corner has been removed, which raises some obvious questions over his true intent.
