#FASHION: DID JEREMY SCOTT RIP OFF ARTIST JIM PHILLIPS?

Uh oh! After presenting what seemed like a pretty dope and original F/W13 collection last week, Jeremy Scott has just recently found himself in a bit of turmoil with legendary artist Jim Phillips (and a ton of people in the skateboard community). 

‘This is crazy!’, ‘Wow? Really!’ and ‘WTF!’ are some of the reactions Jimbo Phillips gave on his Facebook page to the news that renowned fashion designer Jeremy Scott had used his dad’s and his own artwork on multiple pieces of his Fall 2013 collection.

For those of you who don not know Jim Phillips, he designed some of the most iconic and well-known Santa Cruz skateboard graphics from the eighties, like the Screaming Hand, the Slasher graphic for Keith Meek’s pro model boards, several graphics for Rob Roskopp’s boards and many other graphics.

Follow developments on this over at Highsnobiety, but there’s been a fair bit of social media rage from the skate community on this, and rightly so if it turns out Jeremy Scott didn’t contact Jim Phillips about using some most of his iconic artwork.
