Three California street artists have filed a lawsuit against Roberto Cavalli SpA, claiming items in the company’s Just Cavalli collection were imprinted with unauthorized copies of their work, compromising their reputations.
Jason Williams, Victor Chapa and Jeffrey Rubin allege that “the artwork of the so-called Graffiti collection” was mechanically copied without authorization or even the artists’ knowledge from a single mural in San Francisco’s Mission District that the trio created in 2011. The legal action was in response to the March 2014 introduction of the Just Cavalli apparel and accessories collection, with the plaintiffs charging that “every square inch of every piece (including clothing, bags, backpacks, and shoes) was adorned with graffiti art.”
