The Louboutin v. YSL legal drama may be over, but that doesn’t mean the Kardashians are finished. Boldface Licensing + Branding, the licensee of the sisters’ Khroma Beauty by Kourtney, Kim and Khloé collection, has appealed a California judge’s recent ruling.
We broke the news earlier this month that U.S. District Judge Audrey B. Collins granted Lee Tillett’s (the owner of the federally registered KROMA trademark) request for a preliminary injunction. Judge Collins ruled that the sisters and their licensee are prohibited from using the Khroma trademark. One of her reasons: withholding an injunction “will destroy Tillett’s business, which it has built over a decade, causing losses of hundreds of thousands” and perhaps millions of dollars.
According to WWD, in the court documents that Boldface filed with the Ninth Circuit court of appeals, Boldface’s attorneys argue that “if the current stay is lifted and the injunction issues, Boldface stands to lose tens of millions of dollars, and will likely be put of out business.”
