Nirvana apparently sued a fashion designer Marc Jacobs for wearing the logo of the smiling face of the band.
According to the new lawsuit, presented by TMZ, a piece of the brand's "Bootleg Redux Grunge" collection, based in 2018, unauthorized takes over the identity of Nirvana's smiling face. Apparently, exchanging "X" eyes with smart "M" and "J" letters was not enough to deceive anyone.
The entire line of design clothing is centered on the grunge music scene, for which Nirvana helped pave the way. The t-shirt in question is strangely similar to the same Nirvana motif introduced in 1992.
They say that imitation is the best form of flattery – and that's about what happens here.
TMZ has contacted a representative of Marc Jacobs and so far, no response.
