Steve Madden has been accused for copyright infringement by Stella McCartney. In a 22-page lawsuit, the British designer claim against Steve for selling a bag that looks identical to her iconic chain-rimmed Falabella bag.
WWD reports that the suit lists “trade dress infringement, unfair competition, deceptive trade practices, trade dress dilution, and design patent infringement”.
The document calls Steve’s design “a poorly made copy.”
Last year, Balenciaga sued Steve Madden for how the latter’s Btalia bag closely resembled the European fashion house’s iconic Motorcycle bag.
