LONDON — Thomas Pink — known for its men’s and women’s shirts — said that London’s High Court had ruled Thursday that Victoria’s Secret’s use of the name Pink infringes on Thomas Pink’s U.K. and European Community trademarks.
The ruling followed Thomas Pink starting proceedings against Victoria’s Secret for infringing on its trademarks after Victoria’s Secret launched Pink branded shops and clothing in the U.K. in August 2012. The label’s Pink brand targets college-age customers with sleepwear, loungewear and lingerie. Victoria’s Secret has six stores in the U.K., one of which in Bluewater, Kent, is a Victoria’s Secret Pink store.
