Hundreds of Wish.com sellers are reportedly being sued by Off-White for distributing fake-as-all-hell versions of their pieces. More than 160 sellers on the mobile/web e-commerce platform have been sued, Women’s Wear Daily reported Wednesday. Though Virgil Abloh’s brand is reportedly asking for $2 million in damages per alleged infringement, it’s been noted that this is apparently simply the go-to amount. Thus, the final payout—should the suit go Off-White’s way—will likely see a reduction. Of the estimated $41 million sold by the sued sellers via Wish, nearly $1.2 million comes from apparently not-real-at-all Off-White pieces.
