Some fans aren’t happy with Camila Cabello‘s new clothing line. On Friday, December 10, the 22-year-old released her sophomore solo album Romance and new merch items. From beanies to t-shirts and everything in between, the songstress’ online store was bursting with new products for fans to buy and show their support.
Most people seemed excited to get clothes and support the new album, but others noticed that the designs looked almost the same as Halsey‘s merch. Fans quickly took to social media and accused the former Fifth Harmony member of stealing her ideas right from the “Without Me” singer.
“Camila’s merch team really just stole Halsey’s merch designs as if they were nothing,” one fan tweeted after noticing the similarities. Another added, “ARE YOU SERIOUS????? I’m done this is NOT ok!! Halsey has a visual designer for a reason and he works so hard to make her merch look cool and original and your team comes and just copies and pastes it like it’s no big deal… this is so disrespectful. [Camila Cabello] do something!
Other fans even took it a step further and posted side-by-side images of the designs.
Halsey’s visual designer Garrett Hilliker caught wind of the situation and spoke out on social media. In a series of tweets, he called out Camila’s designer for stealing designs in the past and even posted his own side-by-side images. It turned out the similarities went way beyond merch. The comparisons also showed up in the fonts, tarot cards and aesthetic Camila used to announce the Romance era, which all look very close to Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom album.
Camila or her merch team have yet to comment on the accusations.
