@KimKardashian’s sunglasses with Carolina Lemke will be available April 3 w/pre-sales in March.
The $100 price max will likely encourage purchases for originals over knockoffs.
Speaking of knockoffs, Kim has been sounding off on copycat fashion—which is funny to me bc she and her sisters (particularly Kyle, the billionaire) have profited off of promoting those fast fashion companies to fans.
Now Kim is suing @MissguidedUS for $10M for copying her outfit when she specifically asked all fast fashion companies not to do so 😭 (👀 swipe). #fashionlawsuit
Let’s say the outfit in question is protected by patent design. A satirical pass via a fair use defense isn’t available for patents (as it is for trademarks or copyrights) but if Missguided didn’t actually make the outfit, there’s no design patent infringement.
BUT what’s critical here is that Missguided has consistently used Kim’s image to promote their own knockoffs of previous outfits Kim has worn so the case will probably settle before court bc I doubt Missguided will want that smoke 😅 They’ve been consistently profiting off of her name and image which is misappropriation of her likeness and can violate unfair competition laws too.
For her likeness claim Kim will easily prove the elements: use of protected attribute, for an exploitative (commercial) purpose, and without her consent.
