The fashion industry is quicker than most to raise copyright-infringement claims, so it came as no surprise following Demna Gvasalia's debut collection for Balenciaga that there were calls of foul from the Thai fashion community that his oversized striped bags were copies of their traditional market bag, Vogue reports.

 
The Department of Intellectual Property Thailand, however, quashed the claims immediately, reports The Fashion Law, stating: "It's unlikely anybody can sue Balenciaga because the materials and shapes are different."
