Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit with lawsuit
Reality TV stars Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been slapped with a lawsuit alongside clothing brand PacSun.
The sisters are accused of stealing resort lifestyle retailer Island Company’s trademarked logo according to Page Six. The company, based in West Palm Beach, Florida, claim the siblings and PacSun stole its phrase: “Quit your job. Buy a ticket. Get a tan. Fall in love. Never return”
The accusation comes after PacSun designed a shirt for the girls’ clothing line with the similar mantra: “Run away. Fall in love. Never return.”
Island Company states in its legal documents that Kendall and Kylie’s version “is likely to cause confusion, mistake and deception among consumers, the public and the trade as to whether defendants’ products or services are affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by plaintiff,” the outlet reports.
The brand has used its trademark phrase since 2005 and its garments have been seen on celebrities including Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt.
It demands that the words are removed from the teenagers’ clothing.
A rep for Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 18 has yet to respond to the lawsuit or Page Six.
However the girls have spoken in the past about their collaboration with PacSun for their Kendall + Kylie line. Their range was made available in Topshop stores around the world from June (15) and model Kendall hoped fans everywhere would enjoy having a little piece of California in their wardrobe.
“We’re trying to bring the LA vibe to Topshops all over the world,” she told Vogue Australia. “We were thinking about the LA girl, who she is, what she loves to do and what her dream capsule wardrobe would be. There are lots of lighter shades and florals that give that sunshine feel.”
