Jeremy Scott’s Copy-Cat Feud Comes To An End

It's a fashion tale as old as time: designers getting in trouble for ripping off someone else's creations. (Christian Louboutin, Coach, and more have all had to fight to protect their designs.)
The latest controversy comes courtesy of Jeremy Scott. For his fall '13 show, he sent a few looks down the runway with prints that looked eerily similar — okay downright identical — to ones from Santa Cruz Skateboards.
But, now it looks like an agreement has been reached: Scott will not be producing the clothes and handbags that bear the contentious print. The L.A.-based designer also issued the following apology: “I regret that certain pieces of my February 2013 Fall Winter fashion line incorporated imagery that was similar to images owned by NHS and Messrs. Phillips. I now recognize my mistake and out of respect to their work and their rights, the clothing and handbags at issue will not be produced or distributed.”
A dispute that didn't have to end in a messy courtroom case? Bravo! (Hypebeast)
