Well this is unexpected. LVMH was recently fined $10.4 million over the way in which it acquired a 17% stake in Hermès (Hermès alleges LVMH came by the shares unlawfully, LVMH said they acquired the shares "unexpectedly"). In addition to appealing that decision, LVMH filed a lawsuit against an Hermes manager, most likely for alleging publicly that LVMH had come into its stake in Hermès in fraudulent ways. At the time, LVMH had a 22.6% stake in Hermès. Now, LVMH has a 23.1% stake.
In April of this year, Costco sent out an email blast advertising deals on "Designer Handbags," which featured a photo of a Michael Michael Kors purse. The only problem is, Costco isn't an authorized dealer of Michael Kors products--so, needless to say, Kors's people were none too pleased to see the bag pop up in their advertising. Now Kors is suing the retailer.
In case you couldn't tell, LVMH is not exactly over the moon about the lawsuit being brought against it by Hermes, or the investigation launched by French market authority AMF into how it became a major shareholder in the French luxury brand. Not much has come of the case yet aside from both sides launching accusations at one another, until today.

It's a scenario that should sound familiar to those of us in the fashion media world. The suit is not unlike the one former Harper's Bazaar intern Diana Wang is bringing against Hearst--only Wang's is on a much bigger scale. "I'd go as far as to say this case will likely influence settlement talks in the Hearst suit," Elie Mystal, our legal expert over at our brother site Above the Law told us.
And the battle of the exes continues. Last month, Chris Burch filed suit against ex-wife and business partner Tory Burch, claiming breach of contract and tortious interference. Now, Tory Burch is firing back. The designer filed answer and counterclaims to Chris' suit this morning, WWD is reporting. She also outlined how Chris Burch allegedly ripped off the Tory Burch brand for his new venture, C.Wonder.
As the ugly legal battle between Chris and Tory Burch heats up, Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg have spoken out to take Tory's side.
The gloves are finally coming off at Tory Burch. The designer is fighting back against the lawsuit her ex-husband and ex-business partner filed against her three weeks ago, which alleged breach of contract and tortious interference (among other things). And, needless to say, shit is getting personal.
A true end is in sight for the now-18 month long Louboutin vs. YSL trademark case, thanks to YSL being super cool about everything.

We're here to help.
