A few days ago, I said that sometimes, I think Marc Jacobs is playing a joke on the fashion industry.
I take it back. Little did I know the truth: Marc Jacobs is a fervent crusader for the fashion industry.
According to my top legal sources, there is not yet a law allowing a person to sue a designer for marketing and selling ugly or tacky clothing and accessories. As such, Jacobs probably stood the best chance of winning his case by suing for copyright infringement, rather than the not yet legally recognized “fugliness.”
