Kylie and Kendall Jenners thong has not been able to slip through the cracks of a lace companys eyes, especially since the design appears a little close for comfort to its own.
Legal documents obtained by TMZ reveal that Klauber Brothers, Inc. is suing the sisters over similar lace patterns in their garment collection, more specifically for the Kylie Thong Panties and a slip dress.
On its website, Klauber Brothers, Inc.which was founded in 1859explains, Most of our patterns are copyrighted and based on original artwork, and that it has been using breakthrough techniques to master lace-making.
The company is seeking injunctive relief, which means the sisters might have to stop all sales of the offending garments if the court sides with the lace manufacturer. In addition, Klauber Brothers, Inc. has asked for all profits that Kylie and Kendall Jenner have made from the thong and dress to be transferred to the company. Pictures of the alleged similarities can be found here.
If this case seems all too familiar, thats probably because the sisters were also sued by a photographer for using his pictures of Tupac in their t-shirt collection. They also had to withdraw a Chinese takeout-inspired bag because it resembled a version by Kate Spade.
