Depending on the amount of time you spend sitting on the internet you may or may not be aware that teen pop sensation Justin Bieber recently launched his first fragrance, 'Someday'. It has been noted by many that the bottle for said scent bears more than a passing resemblance to Marc Jacobs' best selling 'Lola', particularly the petal-shaped top. WWD sat down for a chat with Jacobs this week ahead of the CFDA Awards and took the opportunity to ask him if he'd seen it - and whether he could see the similarities.
'Yep, yep,' he replied. 'We just had a conversation about it. Coty said, Do we sue them? and I said, You know what? Let everyone else say what they want. I received Google (Alerts) about people saying it was derivative. Were not going to do anything about it.'
He adds, 'But you know, I look around the room and I look at the work weve done and a quote I always bastardize but I really believe in, is something Chanel said: He who insists on his own creativity has no memory."
We're sure that Bieber fans will be breathing a sigh of relief...More
