Kanye has been accused of biting his recent 'Supermoon Yellow' Yeezy ad. Instagram account diet_prada are known for calling out copycats in the fashion industry, and have translated their encyclopaedic knowledge of collections into a legion of followers. You don’t want them to go after you — as Kanye can now attest to.
Seeing Kanye’s new, provocative Yeezy ad, they drew comparison to a shoot by Rita Minissi and posted some compelling evidence.
Another day, another Kanye rip. The just released Yeezy Season 6 campaign lensed by @elirusselllinnetz bears a striking similarity to this 2015 series by @thingspowerthemselves . It’s pretty messed up when you consider the original work by Rita Minissi explores identity and was inspired by dealing with personal trauma and a resulting desire to reconnect with her own body. Will Kanye own up to it this time, or will he be blaming others like he did with the Tony Spackman sketch not so long ago?

While the images do look very similar, there’s a chance that Kanye, a prolific sampler, has already sussed royalties permitting him to recreate the style. If not, he’s got some explaining to do.
