Givenchy Sues BCBG for Knocking Off Their Handbags

Givenchy has filed a lawsuit against BCBG's diffusion line, BCBGeneration, for ripping off their Nightingale bag (which retails for $2,175). They're claiming that BCBGeneration's Rembrandt bag, which doesn't seem to be for sale anymore, "unlawfully copies and imitates" their own design. The court documents state that the offending purses are "likely to cause consumers, the public, and the trade to erroneously believe that [BCBGeneration's bags] ... are authorized, sponsored, and/or approved by Givenchy when, in fact, they are not." Do you find the bags confusing? [SheFinds]
