Triumph sues Beyonce for her underwear
Lingerie manufacturer Triumph filed a lawsuit against Sony bosses for copying one of the brand’s designs in the music video for ‘Video Phone’ by Beyonce Knowles and Lady GaGa.
Triumph claims Bey’s black-and-white two-piece is the direct copy of the lingerie set created by Bulgarian designer Iskren Lozanov.
During the court hearing, Sony lawyers claimed the piece was inspired by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, FemaleFirst.co.uk reported. However, the judge has recently dismissed the claim stating that Lozanov’s design is too unique to be similar to any other design known.
Sony and Beyonce are going to appeal the decision, but so far ‘Video Phone’ is doomed to be associated with lingerie plagiarism.
