NEW BALANCE SUES KARL: New Balance is putting its foot down in court, alleging that Karl Lagerfeld has stepped too close to one of its footwear designs. A New Balance spokeswoman said Wednesday that a lawsuit had been filed “against Karl Lagerfeld to protect our intellectual property rights related to our iconic Lifestyle footwear designs. Although we cannot comment on the specifics of the case, we believe it is vital to actively and vigorously defend our brand.” The designer’s company had not responded to a request for comment at press time.
