Prada is headed to court (and it does not involve Prada Marfa). The Italian design house has filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Preferred Fragrance Inc., the self-proclaimed “leading distributor of designer-inspired perfumes.” Key word … Inspired. According to the complaint, which Prada S.A. (the owner of Prada S.p.A’s intellectual property) filed last month in the Southern District of New York, Preferred’s Party Candy perfume violates its Prada Candy trademark. The fragrances’ names, packaging and bottles are all quite similar.

One thing that’s definitely different: the fragrances’ respective price tags. Prada Candy retails for $82 and Party Candy online for $3.99. We’ll see what the judge rules. More to come …
