Burberry Limited fired the first shots of a potential trenchcoat war in federal court against Iconix Brand Group.
Burberry accused Iconix in a lawsuit filed last week of allegedly infringing on Burberry’s signature check design. In court documents filed Aug. 24 in Manhattan federal court, Burberry alleged that the revamped London Fog trenchcoats and scarves bear a check pattern that is “nearly identical” to Burberry’s own.
