Chanel develops a love for cashmere

Chanel has purchased cashmere knitwear manufacturer, Barrie Knitwear after agreeing a deal with administrators KPMG.

The sale will see Chanel acquire the business and assets of the Scottish company, which was placed into administration on 15 August.

Chanel’s acquisition of Barrie Knitwear secures the jobs of all 176 employees and safeguards a historic brand known for the manufacture of high quality cashmere for some of the world’s most prestigious couture houses, department stores and private label outlets.

Bruno Pavlovsky, Chanel’s Fashion President, said: “The acquisition of Barrie business by Chanel is all the more natural as the factory has worked with us for more than 25 years, producing cashmere knitwear including Chanel’s iconic two-tone cashmere cardigans. Through this acquisition, we reaffirm our commitment to traditional expertise and craftsmanship, and our wish to safeguard their future and support their development.”

Blair Nimmo, head of restructuring at KPMG in Scotland and joint administrator of Dawson International Trading Ltd, said: “With the sale to Chanel, we believe we have secured a sustainable future for a business which is of both historical significance to the textile industry and of local importance as a major employer in the Scottish Borders. We would like to thank the staff, customers and suppliers for their patience, loyalty and understanding as we worked towards achieving this sale.”

The current management will continue to manage the company, with Jim Carrie as Managing Director and Clive Brown as Sales Director.

Barrie will pursue its partnerships with all major luxury brands, with no exclusivity, and grow the presence of its own brands throughout the world.

The war of the soles draws to a close

The white flag has flown with the news that Yves Saint Laurent has dropped its lawsuit against Christian Louboutin.

In what was regarded as one of the hottest legal cases within the fashion industry this year and a legal tug-of-war that lasted about 18 months, YSL have decided to shift their focus towards their business and creative designs.

WWD reports that YSL was ready to “close the book”, claiming they had won a “conclusive” victory.

Louboutin sued YSL in April 2011, claiming the fashion house infringed on the footwear brand’s trademark when it sold red pumps with red soles. Presiding New York federal court judge Victor Marrero disagreed with Louboutin, and allowed YSL to continue to sell the monochrome shoes. The judge went a step further by questioning the validity of Louboutin’s trademark.

With its mark in jeopardy, the French shoemaker appealed the decision, and in January, Louboutin lawyer Harley Lewin argued his client’s case before a packed courtroom, which included industry figures such as Council of Fashion Designers of America president Diane von Furstenberg, CFDA chief executive officer Steven Kolb and an apprehensive Christian Louboutin.

“From our perspective, the Appeals Court decision was a complete victory for us,” said YSL lawyer David Bernstein. “We got the right to sell the shoes and the court even narrowed Louboutin’s trademark. It’s our hope that Louboutin will stop using the [trademark] registration in an anticompetitive way.”

“Now that Pepsi and Coke have fought over the formula, I must say, in my 40-year career, I’ve never seen a case go more wide than this one,” Harley Lewin remarked. “It had a celebrity, fashion and legal side to it but once the consumer got involved, that changed the face of the case. It was tried in the courtroom and the court of public opinion.”

“Christian Louboutin is pleased to receive the news of the dismissal announcement by Yves Saint Laurent today of their claims against Christian Louboutin which were filed before district Judge Marrero and were left with no merits since the decision of the US Court of Appeals,” a Christian Louboutin statement said.

“We have considered this case closed since last September when the court of appeals rendered their ruling re-affirming the validity of our trademark rights on the red sole in the United States, iconic signature of Christian Louboutin over the past twenty years. The ruling deprived Yves Saint Laurent of its claim for cancellation of our trademark.

“We are delighted to note that Yves Saint Laurent have instead decided “to refocus their energies on its business and creative designs.”

Back to business so it seems…
