Did Gucci rip off artist Jim Joe?
Gucci's latest collection featured T-shirts with hand-written scrawl on them with statements like "Common sense is not all that common." While the shirts were designed in collaboration with artist Coco Capitan, some critics have taken to social media to point out the striking resemblance the concept has to the work of street artist Jim Joe, whose short sayings and hand-written scrawl have been featured everywhere from the NYC subways to Drake's "If youre reading this its too late" cover. It's hard to say who should be blamed — Gucci? Capitan? — but regardless, the resemblance is hard to ignore. {Instagram/@_franwiththeplan}
