Versace New Shirt is Stolen From L.A. Artist KESH x American Apparel Design #KESH #VERSACE #Plagiarism #BadForm

Call it a case of fashion imitating art in the worst way possible. Yesterday artist KESH found out that Versace had been plagiarizing her shirt/art, and selling it for bank to millions at high-priced Selfride’s for an over-priced $650. Turns out it’s a rip-off of an incredibly famous shirt by local L.A. artist KESH that was a collaboration in 2013 that retailed for $50.

Ouch!

KESH had created a line with American Apparel in 2013. Internationally renowned for her collection with American Apparel in 2013, KESH went on tour for her collection with American Apparel, the line that sold out in a matter of weeks, and was a celebrity favorite.

According to publicist Sydney Reising;

The collection was extremely well received and sold out almost instantly as a result of the support ranging from models such as Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn (both were frequently seen in multiple pieces from the collaboration), to musicians like Jessie J and Wiz Khalifa, and K-POP stars 2NE1 and G-Dragon

The capsule was sold in American Apparel flagship stores around the world, from Tokyo to Berlin to New York. The artist traveled the globe to celebrate in stores worldwide with fans as the collection debuted. 

This looks like a slam dunk case for artist KESH. Not only are the similarities in product plagiarism but the original AA  x KESH Tee was photographed all over the internet by celebrities wearing it. Celebrities are even coming out in favor of the KESH line by instagramming themselves in the famous shirt.

Look’s like not only is the house of Versace looking at a lawsuit. Artist KESH is just devastated. KESH spoke with New York Magazine’s The Cut earlier today:

“I have always had a deep admiration for Versace. It’s an iconic brand that has stood the test of time. I am deeply disappointed in this. This is not only artwork from a show that took me two years to develop and create. It is not only artwork from a collection that I created for American Apparel to provide something affordable and accessible to supporters of my work. But this is also my face! I can’t understand how something like this could happen.”

Over here at HeathyrWolfe.com we support artists of all kinds but never support liars and cheaters. The house of Versace is fabulous, they don’t need to be stealing from hard-working artists. Why not just hire KESH? KESH is well-known for her work and has been featured in publications including; Elle, Cool Hunting, Vogue, i-D, LA Weekly, and WAD. The artist is known for her loyal fan base that includes Kayne West, Theophilus London, Jeremy Scott, Cara Delevingne, Azealia Banks and Prince.

I’m proud to say this is not slowing KESH down. She’s working on products that include not just visuals but music incorporate as well.

Kick -Ass 2 is Upon Us! #Trailer #Video #Booyah

Online-600x800_CGM-Close_AW_24772-KickAss-21

OMGOMGOMG…Kick-Ass 2 is coming out and my inner geek girl can barely handle it.

First off I have to admit to my personal love affair with Chloe Moretz.

She is the business, and I can only hope every 16-year-old out there is taking notes on how to be awesome from her. She conquered the movie Kick-Ass, by being super cool at only 12 years old, but also managed to steal the movie from Nick Cage and Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass). Then she moved on to 30Rock where she whooped Jack Donehy’s ass several rounds, corporate style.

Now, at 16, she is the center of Kick-Ass 2 and is OWNING IT. Add an all-star cast including Jim Carrey, Lyndsy Fonseca (pickle fork girl from Hot Tub Time Machine/ TV’s Nikita), John Leguizamo and one of my other personal favorites, Donald Faison.

Check out the uber sweet trailer below. (And Aaron Johnson’s manly chest at around the :59 mark. Kick-Ass apparently has been working out)

Are you dying to see it? Yeah well us suckers for a good thing can’t watch it until it premieres on August 16, of this year. Until then we await the return of our favorite superheroes patiently. Now go work on your costume and I’ll see you there masked avengers.

‘Canadian Psycho/Kitten Killer’ Luka Rocco Magnotta CAUGHT in Berlin

It’s time’s like this I know things are right with the world and less wrong. Luka Rocco Magnotta, ex escort, ‘Angel’, has been caught for the gruesome murder and dismembering of his ex-lover Lin Jun, 33.

Magnotta posted a grisly recording of him dismembering and defiling his ex-lover and then mailed the body parts to different political offices in Canada, including the Canadian Conservative Party.

The hunt for Magnotta ended today when very smart and aware internet cafe worker in Berlin, recognized him, watched him and reported him as he was leaving. Originally authorities thought he fled to Paris and might be dressed as a woman. Thank god for the public. ‘We’ ARE what brings ‘Canadian Psycho’s’ to justice.

Magnotta’s previous history was disturbed and pointed towards a path of violence (if anyone had been paying attention). He had originally dubbed himself the ‘Kitten Killer’, and posted videos on his personal website of the poor little things stuck in a plastic bag and him sucking the air out of plastic bags.

We demand Kitten Justice!

Magnotta also dated a convicted murderer. According to the DailyTelegraph,

 Mr Magnotta once dated Karla Homolka, who was convicted in 1991 of manslaughter following a plea bargain in the rape and murder of two teenage girls and her sister

Magnotta also took to his blog often making himself out to be a ‘victim’. He complained about ‘Cyberstalking’ and said that this whole silly murder thing was ‘Media Propaganda’ out to get him.

Something about killing innocent animals and dismembering your now ex-boyfriend strikes me as WRONG.

He even blogged, and this is the real winner,

 “It’s not cool to the world being a necrophiliac. It’s bloody lonely.”

Reality check to Magnotta, something tells me you won’t be getting any pity in your trail.  Perhaps he would like to be stuck in a plastic bag and have all the air sucked out?

Justice? I think so.
