new-balance-to-sue-karl-lagerfeld

He's the man behind high-fashion powerhouse Chanel, Italian-made Fendi, and his own brand, however, that doesn't stop him from being sued by Boston-based footwear brand New Balance. All in all, designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld is in hot water for allegedly infringing the design of a New Balance sneaker.

The lawsuit points out that Lagerfeld's supposed $370 designer trainer jacks New Balance for its classic block lettering, i.e. "K" and "N" branding appear too similar. But really, does this lawsuit stand a chance in the court or will it be dropped and forgotten?

Let us know what you think of this counterfeit suit in the comments below and keep it here for more developments.
