When Mark Jacobs wanted to sue Justin Bieber
London: Marc Jacobs once wanted to sue Justin Bieber after the teen pop star launched a women`s perfume called `Someday`, which was similar to the designer`s popular scent `Lola`.
Many fans have remarked on the similarities between Bieber`s and Jacobs` perfumes and the designer himself has confirmed he had a meeting with bosses at Coty, the fragrance company behind his scents, about the issue, reported a website.
But Jacobs` decided against taking legal action over Bieber`s product.
"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. We`re not going to do anything about it," he said.
"I look around the room and I look at the work we`ve done and a quote I really believe in is something Chanel said, `He who insists on his own creativity has no memory`," added Jacobs.
