More Plagiarism Allegations for Abloh.

After a successful Off-White show and with his first show as the Menswear Creative Director of Louis Vuitton imminent, Diet Prada has investigated the origins of “crossed arrows” logo that has become synonymous with Virgil’s Off-White brand.

Diet Prada, who has also accused Abloh of plagiarism, revealed in an Instagram post that the logo could possibly be taken signage that was designed in 1965 by UK-based design group Kinneier, Calvert & Associates and previously used at Glasgow Airport. The post also called to question the origins of the diagonal stripes, another signature Off-White monogram, which appears alongside the crossed arrows logo in the airport. Diet Prada also posted a picture of Virgil Abloh with a Logo Modernism book, where an entry on the crossed arrows Glasgow Airport logo is featured.

Although he’s been open about referencing other peoples work, allegations of plagiarism have riddled Virgil’s career, with many like Diet Prada calling him out on his designs. See the Instagram post below and decide for yourself.
