Artist Billie Eilish's clothing collection has been halted after it emerged that the clothing brand the artist was working with copied a work from an anime series and a fan-art artist. The clothing brand has now withdrawn the collection and apologizes on social media.



It was last week that 17-year-old shooting star Billie Eilish released the clothing collection along with the Siberia hills brand which includes a t-shirt and hoodie. But almost immediately came reactions on social media that the motif on the clothes resembled the character Nozomi Tojo from the anime series Long live !.

In addition, the motif strongly resembled a work signed fan-art artist Makoto Kurokawas who represents the character in the series.

After the images on the clothing received a lot of attention on social media, the clothing brand and the artist decided to quickly withdraw the entire collection, writes Artnews. In an post on Instagram, the clothing brand now apologizes for the piano tramp, which they say had nothing to do with the artist.

“We apologize to the talented artist Mr. M_Qurokawa for using the artwork for our collaboration with Billie Eilish. Billie and her team did not know we were using the work - they just believed in the product, ”they write on Instagram.

This is not the first time Billie Eilish is being held responsible for plagiarism charges. As late as June this year, her music video for the single Bad Guy ended up in blustery weather as it recalled photographs from Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrarri's satirical magazine Toiletpaper.
