BREAKING NEWS : BIKIES TAKING ON ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

BIKIES TAKING ON ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

Still fresh in the minds, is the loss of one of the greatest designers of our time, Alexander McQueen’s shoes were always going to be a challenge to fill, but Sarah Burton probably wasn’t expecting this type of attention.



“The Hells Angels are suing Alexander McQueen, after accusing the British fashion house of misusing its trademark winged death heads symbol.



A complaint was filed against McQueen on Monday by the Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation (HAMC) stating the label has breached trademark protection rules. HAMC cites a four-finger knuckle duster ring and a women’s handbag, which both carry the winged death motif.” – Vogue UK.


“This isn’t just about money, it’s about membership,” said Hells Angels lawyer Fritz Clapp, a Los Angeles-based biker who sports a red mohawk. “If you’ve got one of these rings on, a member might get really upset that you’re an imposter.” – NY Mag







Interestingly, The Hells Angels have sued Marvel and Disney with success in the past for similar offenses.
