Marc Jacobs: Won't Be Suing Over Bieber's Lookalike Bottle

Last month, we couldn't help but notice that the bottle topper for Justin Bieber's new scent, Someday, looks an awful lot like the one on Marc Jacobs's Lola. Of the obvious similarities, Marc Jacobs Intl tweeted to us, "We don't mind. We're Beliebers."

And it seems that the brand's sentiments still ring true. In a recent interview with WWD, Jacobs noted that in the world of fashion, ideas and inspiration often overlap. He explained, "I look around the room and I look at the work we've done and a quote I always bastardize but I really believe in, is something [Coco] Chanel said: 'He who insists on his own creativity has no memory.'"

And as for what he's planning on doing regarding the likeness of Bieber's bottle to his own? It appears he won't be doing anything. "Coty said, 'Do we sue them?' and I said, 'You know what? Let everyone else say what they want.' . . . We're not going to do anything about it."

What do you think about Jacobs's statements? Do you agree with what he says about the fact that it's common for designers to borrow elements from each other, or do you think he should take action?

He is a nice guy. Beiber is an joke, the bottles are identical but Beiber's is extremely cheap looking.

good for marc! i didn't think the bottles were all that similar. any bottle with an artsy plastic flower at the top could be infringement? :( (and for the record, i am not a belieber ;) )

Ahh I stand corrected. Much appreciate Jaime and hang in there risqueredhead. Just hope that he doesn't show up at your store to promote it. :)

I seriously doubt the girls buying Justin Bieber's perfume are going to be the same shopping for Marc Jacobs. Or they will be, but in about 10 years. Honestly - I really respect Jacobs for this. Now I have an excuse to buy something of his! :)

There is a Bieber fragrance that's sold at Walmart right now, Gummibears, but Someday is supposed to be more of a prestige scent. So Lola and Someday will be in similar stores — but it's a totally different market.

It was probably too expensive to sue over. Besides I believe the perfume is going to be distributed through different channels with Beiber's through Wal-Mart and Marc Jacobs via department stores and stand alones such as Ulta, Sephora, etc.
