We’ve rounded up some ways to not be a total Easter Scrooge tomorrow, even if you’re not a die-hard bunny-and-pastels fan.
After months of a messy legal battle over the similarities and business competition between Tory Burch‘s eponymous brand and her ex-husband Chris Burch’s lower-priced line C. Wonder, including Christmas subpoenas back and forth and no shortage of verbal battling on both sides, the once-married pair have settled their lawsuit.
Tory and ex-husband Chris Burch have had a rough couple of years, what with his new company C. Wonder and public falling outs. But the War of the Burches isn’t over, and now Chris is suing Tory and her company for allegedly messing with his own business.
C. Wonder is the brainchild of Tory Burch‘s ex-husband, Chris. As such, his company sells apparel and homegoods that some say resemble Burch’s wares, even if he doesn’t think so. In the latest edition of This Thing That Looks Like That Thing, C. Wonder is accused of copying an elephant and balloon image by Bulgarian artist Zlatka Pirin Paneva, and slapping it onto its own line of homegoods.
Right on the heels of Tory Burch‘s WWD profile, Chris Burch has taken to CBS This Morning to discuss C. Wonder and his ex-wife.
And the War of Burches heats up.
