Last week reports surfaced that Prada Japan allegedly terminated workers they found unattractive, after ex-senior retail manager Rina Bovrisse filed a complaint against the label. On Saturday, after failing to reach a settlement with Prada Japan, Bovrisse told the Japan Times she had planned to collect more witnesses and file a lawsuit. Prada just issued this statement:

Following the many press reports published on Ms. Bovrisse's termination of employment by Prada Japan, Prada once again stresses that Ms. Bovrisse's accusations regarding an alleged misconduct of the company towards her have no ground. Prada also wishes to underline that the Japanese competent Court has dismissed all of the employee's accusations and has ruled that the termination of her employment was perfectly legitimate.
