Update: Alexander McQueen settles with Hells Angels
UPDATE: Following our recent report that the Hells Angels were taking legal action against Alexander McQueen over unauthorised use of its trademarked logo in its designs, the dispute has now been settled.
The members-only motorcycle club sued the fashion house a week ago by filing a trademark infringement lawsuit, after its logo was used in McQueen knuckle-duster rings, clutches, jacquard dress and pashmina.
They also had Saks Fifth Avenue and Zappos.com in their legal sights, and asked for financial damages based on profits earned by the companies.
However their attorney has since said that there is no financial estimate on how many items were sold. "They consider it quite exclusive," he said. "They consider themselves members, not someone who bought a $495 ring." The items in question have been taken off the shelves.
