Gucci Takes GUESS Lawsuit Overseas

gucci-awarded-4-million-in-guess-trademark-case.jpg

Gucci is not taking this lying down!

After a federal judge only rewarded the company $4.7 million in their bitter three-year battle against GUESS on Monday, a lawyer for Gucci says that they were shocked with the "surprisingly low" outcome.

Uh, yeah! After all, they were asking for a whopping $221 million in damages after alleging that GUESS copied their diamond "G" pattern and signature red and green strip on one of their shoe styles.

So, now Gucci is going to try to get their money elsewhere. They've just filed similar lawsuit$ overseas in China, Italy, and France.

Will this ever end???

Floating Shoes? Another Jeffrey Campbell Creation, Of Course!

jeffrey-campbell-floating-shoes.jpg

Jeffrey Campbell has created yet another design that is uncanny unique.

The Los Angeles-based designer is known for unusual creations, but we must say these "floating shoes" are by far the most bizarre!

The $175 Upend (top) looks like the fraternal twin to the oxford and the $145 Float (bottom) could easily be related to a sling-back peep-toe sandal.

We can't quite figure out if Campbell was going for a wedge, dress shoe, sandal, or just some crazy mixture. But one thing's for sure, he did create something out of the ordinary.

What do U think of Campbell's "floating shoes?"

Adidas' signature three stripes are JUST as identifiable as Nike's swoosh, so OF COURSE they'd be pissed if another shoe rips off their symbol!

Adidas AG and Adidas America Inc. have filed a lawsuit against Big 5 Sporting Goods and World Industries for creating/distributing sneaks that bear “confusingly similar imitations of Adidas’ three-stripe mark.”

The athletic clothing MEGA brand is asking for both companies to be permanently enjoined from using their trademark stripes, that all footwear bearing the mark be destroyed, and they want monetary and punitive damages and legal fees.

DAMN. They are super for serious!

We're sure those small, California based companies are feeling Adidas' burn!
