Givenchy is suing BCBG for “trade dress infringement”. The luxury fashion house has accused the French label of copying its grey Nightingale bag and of “unfair competition”.
BCBG’s Remembrant handbag has been described as a “knock off” by Givenchy. Legal documents, uncovered by SheFinds, state the bag “unlawfully copies and imitates” and may confuse customers into thinking the BCBG style is related to the original Givenchy design.
“[The handbag] is likely to cause consumers, the public, and the trade to erroneously believe that [BCBGeneration’s bags] are authorised, sponsored, and/or approved by Givenchy when, in fact, they are not,” reads Givenchy’s legal statement.
