A complaint filed in federal court in California earlier this week by the Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation alleges that the Alexander McQueen brand, breached trademark protections, according to reports.
A four-finger "Hell's Knuckle Duster" ring that carries a winged death's head design is cited, as is a handbag with a similar motif. There is also a dress and a silk scarf with designs that incorporate what the HAMC alleges are also trademark-protected symbols.
News of the lawsuit follows reports yesterday that the costume designer for the upcoming Harry Potter film had plagiarised one of McQueen's designs in the film.
