Paul Marciano, chief creative officer at Guess, said in a press release that the clothing used “iconic motifs from Banksy’s graffiti.”

It said the pieces were a partnership with Brandalised, which licenses designs from graffiti artists to “offer fans affordable collectibles”.

Last night, Brandalized Banksy seemed to hit back by posting several quotes from the artist.

One read: “Ask for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.”

Guess has not commented on the matter.
