"We are very pleased with the ruling," Versace CEO Gian Giacomo Ferraris told WWD. "Counterfeit goods not only bring to a dilution of the brand, but are connected to organized crime, child labor, and harmful working conditions. . . . One cannot take pride in being counterfeited."
Authentic Versace pieces all come complete with a Certilogo code, a serial number that customers can check online to see if it's counterfeit or not. If it is, they should send it back. To this, Ferraris said, "It's a clear system and very transparent. We want to protect consumers and all those affected by the manufacture and trade in fake goods."
