@1:59 says the person who's never been to Africa
(Disclaimer: let me say this now so I don't have to say it later; yes, not only have I been to Africa I use to own a house there)

Anyway

That's the tricky thing about trying to come up, you want to show your work to your heroes but sometimes your heroes will plagiarize your work. Sad.

Its FUCKED up that he didn't want to bring in this young man on the project. Could've given him points and credit for the design and sales.....Overrated muthafuka!
Go get you a lawyer immediately young man & let that be a lesson in business. Don't disclose your work without an NDA

@1:59 pm, Well this is an urban gossip blog. You’re not going to find talks about fly fishing and golf here. It has nothing to do with white folks this time dear. Nope.

If this young man owns this intellectual property he needs to get a contingency lawyer and sue for theft of his intellectual property. He should ask for all the earned income from "Off-White by Louis Vuitton" for the sale of the shades. Better yet, LV needs to hire this young man.

Shame on Vitiligo for stealing this boy's creation. The young man was appreciative and humble enough to thank his friend for the 3D print.

Besides being kidnapped and sold, Africans were lured to boats with linens trinkets land textiles during the slave trade. So like I said.... These white folks really got yall caring about clothes and makeup and shit huh?

Also @2:18

F**k yo African house that sits on colonial dilapidated drained and depleted land.

Clothes look wack. Glasses look generic. Fashion is a joke!

@2:18 - And exactly who, pray tell, are these "heros" of which you are speaking. Surely NOT Virgil or any gat damn body else.

That's the problem with society today. Got us looking outside ourselves for "heros" "geniuses" and the like.

STOP PLAYING. The only thing those main stream, lame fucks have is ACCESS (prolly cause they paid the nasty, degrading price of the white mans admission).

Look within for inspiration and validation - that is all WE need. And continue to call out the blatant copiers and plagiarizes.

Interesting... Virgil steals from unknown designer but who the hell is Virgil (making him unknown to me)?

While some people are worried about stocks, investments, 401k and crypto, others are worried about fashion and shades. Its messed up. Everyone in the fashion industry "borrows" from someone else. When will someone steal from Virgil?
