What do Karl Lagerfeld and dishwashers have in common? Absolutely nothing, except that Lagerfeld is collaborating with plastic shoe purveyor Melissa on a capsule collection of jellies for Fall ’13 that will be – you’ve guessed it – dishwasher safe.
Karl Lagerfeld, the long time creative director of Chanel, is being sued by New Balance. A lawsuit, obtained by entertainment site TMZ, details the Boston-based brand’s complaint, describing the shoe that is says is causing “confusion” for its customers. New Balance claims the K motif on the $370 sneakers sold under Lagerfeld’s eponymous label is too similar to the N logo it’s been using since the ’70s.
