I wrote about Lululemon earlier this summer when I was on the hunt for efficient workout gear. While checking up on my news today, I was surprised to see headlines that the upscale workout company is suing designer Calvin Klein over their signature yoga pants.
Lululemon’s popular Astropant is the issue at hand. Lululemon claims that Calvin Klein’s new ‘Performance’ pants infringe 3 patents on Lulu’s own Astropant including the waistband design. Calvin Klein is selling their pants at a fraction of the cost, rivaling Lulu’s pricy $98 pants.
I think this is definitely quite a case – I think Calvin Klein could be paying quite a bit for these similarities.
Lovelies, do you think Lululemon has a case? Are these pants too similar?
