When Future said he “just fucked your bitch in some Gucci flip flops” is it possible he wasn’t actually wearing Forever 21?
Gucci launched two countersuits aimed at retailer Forever 21 this week over its use of the high-end brand’s trademarked “blue-red-blue” and “green-red-green” stripe patterns.
According to Refinery29, Gucci had threatened legal action already, prompting Forever 21 to attempt to take their case before the courts first.
The countersuits follow an effort by Forever 21 to protect the striped design from being trademarked. “Many clothing and accessory items adorned with decorative stripes colored blue-red-blue or green-red-green are sold by countless third parties,” argued Forever 21 in that suit. “Gucci should not be allowed to claim that Gucci, alone, has a monopoly on all blue-red-blue and green-red-green striped clothing and accessory items.”
