NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg defended the interests of luxury fashion house Fendi in proceedings against US-based Coach for infringement by the latter of Fendi's EU design rights in its Peekaboo handbag.
The Luxembourg District Court (Tribunal d'arrondissement) upheld Fendi's EU design rights in its Peekaboo handbag. It further found that Coach's Gramercy handbag reproduced the essential characteristics of the Peekaboo bag and infringed these rights. The court imposed a pan-EU injunction on Coach and prohibited the latter from further marketing its Gramercy handbag in the EU.
Fendi was represented by Vincent Wellens.
