Just days after announcing her clothing collaboration with Siberia Hills, Billie Eilish's latest merch collection has been removed from her website.

Fans are pointing out that the designs from the collection look very similar to an anime drawing from Japanese artist @m_qurokawa. Some believe this was the original artwork, which was posted on the artist's Twitter last August.

And this is the design used in the Billie Eilish x Siberia Hills collection.

Siberia Hills has removed their post about the collection from their Instagram, but fans are still coming after the 17-year-old artist and the brand on Twitter.

On the brand's Instagram, they admitted to stealing the designs, posting an apology on their feed and promising to refund all customers.

"To the talented artist Mr. M_Qurokawa, we apologize for taking from your artwork for our merchandise collaboration with Billie Eilish," Siberia Hills wrote.

"Billie and her team were not aware that we used your art, they just believed in the product. We were the creative force behind this collaboration. To Billie, and her fans, we apologize for causing this issue. These items will not be released. To those who already purchased, you will be refunded."

Billie Eilish hasn't yet addressed the accusations.

Seventeen.com has reached out to Siberia Hills and Billie Eilish's team for comment.
