Philipp Plein has just lost a legal battle with Ferrari amidst a three-judge court panel in Milan, national newspaper Il Corriere della Sera reported. The Italian automaker sued Phillip Plein for copyright infringement that stemmed back to 2017.
Ferrari first caught wind of Phillip Plein’s misrepresentatives practices in his Spring 2018 runway show. Ferrari vehicles, alongside other Mercedes Benzs, Lamborghinis and McLarens were featured in the event as part of the runway’s hyper-opulent presentation. Beyond this, Ferrari has also been pursuing Phillip Plein on a number of advertisements built off of “illegitimate use of Ferrari trademarks,” including images posted directly to Plein’s personal Instagram account.
