Nirvana Hits Marc Jacobs With A Lawsuit

Nirvana has filed a lawsuit against fashion brand Marc Jacobs over an iconic smiley face design featured in its “Bootleg Redux Grunge” collection.

TMZ broke the news on Twitter.

“Nirvana’s famous smiley face design was stolen by famous clothing brand Marc Jacobs, so says the band in a new lawsuit,” it tweeted.

Jacobs’ new product line features a black shirt designed with a squiggle-smiley face.

The rock band has owned the smiley trademark since 1992.

“With the ability to transcend trends and push boundaries; Marc Jacobs creates pieces infused with the designer’s predictable unpredictability. Crafted from black and yellow cotton, this T-shirt features a round neck, short sleeves and a graphic print. Pair with jeans or tailored trousers for a simple yet stylish finish,” a product description says.
