Dolce & Gabbana Sues Cape Town Shop, “Dolce & Banana”

Dolce & Gabbana has just sued a small, sea-side jewelry shop in Cape Town, South Africa, for naming the store "Dolce and Banana." According to WWD, the business has been around for 12 years and has developed into a tourist attraction. Owner Mijou Beller didn't have enough money to fight in the lawsuit, and has apparently changed her name for $13,195. According to its Facebook, it seems like Mijou has dropped the "Dolce" part in the name, and now goes by just &Banana. It's a smart move, as far as we're concerned. 'Cause as we all know, "There's always money in the banana stand." (WWD)
