For the second day, the network has been vigorously discussing the new exit of Kim Kardashian. The celebrity arrived in New York on the eve of the Met Gala, but it seems that even before entering the red carpet, she is ready to outshine everyone and completely destroy the competition in the “Image of the Day” section.
In front of the hotel, Kim appeared in a leather coat and leather balaclava from the Vetements Spring 2019 collection. She complemented the image with a Balenciaga bag and boots.
Everyone immediately compared her image with the last public appearances of her ex-husband Kanye West. Recall that this year the balaclava (and sometimes just a bag without slots) has become his favorite accessory. For example, it was in this image that he appeared at the Balenciaga couture show.
Kanye is dressing her again!
My face was sweating just because I was looking at this photo!
Where did Darth Vader come from?
You can't fool me, coronavirus
– reacted to the new image of Kim in the comments.
The designer Sergio Castano Pena also spoke about the new image of the Kardashians. However, he had no time for jokes. The man stated that the image is a rip-off of his idea, which he tried to implement when he was an intern at Vetements in 2019. Recall that then Demna Gvasalia was the creative director of the brand (he left the post in September 2019 and now only holds the post of creative director of Balenciaga).

The story looks rather confusing and ambiguous, because the spring 2019 collection was shown back in the summer of 2018. Although the outfits of Vetements from collection to collection, let's face it, radically differed little, and it is not difficult to get confused. Especially when it comes to such “unique” things as a raincoat and balaclava.
Recall that recently the Vetements brand, which is now engaged by Demna's brother Guram Gvasalia, was also accused of copying the images of the famous homeless Slavik from Lviv, who several years ago became the hero of the photo project.
