Victoria’s Secret opnieuw door het stof na plagiaat

Category: ★ Fashion News

‘s Werelds meest bekende lingerielabel wordt opnieuw flink door het slijk gehaald na de beschuldiging dat ze ontwerpen zouden hebben gekopieerd. De beschuldigingen komen van het populaire Instagram account ‘The Diet Prada’, zij stellen dat Victoria’s Secret ontwerpen van het luxe label ‘Fleur Du Mal’ heeft gestolen. ‘The Diet Prada’ is in het bezit van een bon waarop te zien is dat een medewerker van Victoria’s Secret een enorme bestelling deed bij Fleur Du Mal. Toevallig gaat het om dezelfde items die Victoria’s Secret zou hebben gekopieerd. Bovendien laat The Diet Prada zien dat de ontwerpen van beide merken nagenoeg identiek zijn. Check de post hieronder. Dit ligt er wel heel dik bovenop toch?

Hey @victoriassecret , you really built up that bad karma last November, huh? Not long after Ed Razek’s trans/fatphobic comments in an interview with Vogue, an associate buyer at the Columbus, Ohio-based lingerie company placed a $12,656 web order from @fleurdumalnyc . Half of the order was for Fleur du Mal’s embroidered and appliquéd Lily bras and panties, dupes of which unsurprisingly showed up for sale on VS’ website and Instagram two days ago (at half the price). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a bit more complicated than just your typical knockoff story though. Could there be bad blood boiling below the surface at VS? Jennifer Zuccarini, Fleur du Mal’s founder, previously co-founded the lingerie brand Kiki de Montparnasse in 2005 and followed with a three year stint as design director at Victoria’s Secret from 2008-2011. The following year, Fleur du Mal was born, growing into a successful brand and celeb-favorite while VS’ sales continued to decline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But their troubles don’t stop there. The recently exposed ties between L Brands’ CEO Les Wexner and Jeffrey Epstein Epstein, sent stock shares of VS’ parent company tumbling to the lowest they’ve been in nearly a decade. Epstein, a close friend and former financial advisor to Wexner, has of course been making headlines after being indicted on child sex trafficking charges. The day of his arrest last weekend, a trove of naked photos of underage girls was uncovered in his Upper East Side mansion, a home that was formerly owned by Wexner and reportedly transferred over to Epstein for $1. Hella shady and creepy, if we’ve ever seen it. Supermodels, it might be time to really rethink your contracts with Victoria’s Secret. Here’s to L Brands’ shares and VS’ profits tumbling even deeper lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • #fleurdumal #lingerie #lace #silk #embroidery #lily #black #victoriassecret #edrazek #lbrands #leswexner #jeffreyepstein #transphobia #fatphobia #ecommerce #onlineshopping #linkedin #vsfashionshow #scandal #corporation #indiebrand #ripoff #ootd #femaleowned #womanowned #dietprada
