Kanye West’s Yeezy Clothing Label Sued Over Camouflage Patterns

Kanye West’s clothing company, Yeezy Apparel, has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly using another clothing label’s camouflage patterns.

The suit was filed in federal court in Georgia on Tuesday by Jordan Outdoor Enterprises Ltd., who claim that the Yeezy brand unlawfully used their Realtree designs in their camouflage range of products.

As reported by TMZ, the complaint states that a Yeezy representative contacted Jordan in 2016 with interest in using the patterns. However, after Jordan explained that Yeezy would require licensing authorization, communications broke down and the clothing line went on to rip off the patterns “and falsify, remove, and alter [Jordan’s] copyright management information.”

The alleged stolen design was used in the rapper’s Yeezy Season 5 line of products, which includes hoodies, cargo pants, shirts, bomber jackets, and thigh-high boots. LeBron James’s brand, Unknwn, was also named in the lawsuit for selling Yeezy clothes.

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, was photographed wearing a version of the camo print back in January.

Jordan is not only requesting damages but has asked for West’s company to cease manufacturing and selling the clothes in question and to turn over the items that already exist.

Representatives for West/Yeezy have not yet spoken on the matter.
