You know Nirvana’s iconic Smiley Face logo? Marc Jacobs has his own take that is very reminiscent yet slightly different, which has gotten him sued.
The band claims the fashion designer is infringing on their copyright with his Redux Grunge Collection, which was released in November and features a similar Smiley Face.
Issuing a chart detailing the differences, Jacobs wants the suit dismissed, noting that the eyes and wording aren’t the same. The Xs were replaced with the letters M and J, and rather than Nirvana, the word Heavenly appears.
Jacobs further claims that Courtney Love and her daughter with late-frontman Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean, are fans of the design.
