As reported by Affinity Magazine, comparisons have been drawn online between Jenner's Camo Collection and designs from PluggedNYC.

On Monday, PluggedNYC released a statement to Complex:
"I woke up to bitches looking like me" *carti voice* At the end of the day money is power and the kardashians have both. It doesn't matter if she wore my stuff previously then literally shoots same Concept with same shoes and all..But at the end of day this will be all blown over tomorrow, her sales will continue, I can never have a billboard in the middle of the city. Money is power, they can take a whole movement just bc of prices. Money rules the world if you haven't noticed
This isn't the first time Jenner has been accused of ripping off preexisting designs. Back in January, Jenner reportedly avoided a potential copyright infringement lawsuit by coming to an undisclosed agreement with artist Vlada Haggerty regarding dripping lips imagery used in her campaigns. After Haggerty's attorney threatened legal action, Jenner shared a series of Instagram posts urging her followers to check out @vladamua's work. In a subsequent statement, Haggerty said she was "very happy" to announce that the issue had been resolved. "Thanks so much to every single one of you creative souls who supported us, we truly appreciate you," Haggerty said.
