Dont Use "Chanel" As An Adjective, Unless You Want To Get Sued...

CHANEL Bought a full page ad in Woman Wear Daily magazine this week, warning writers not to use the word "Chanel" to describe other designer's collections or else they'll get sued! Apparently, the brand is tired of other collections being compared to their timeless pieces. Chanel said: Chanel was a designer, an extraordinary woman who made a timeless contribution to fashion. Chanel is a perfume. Chanel is modern elegance in couture, ready-to-wear, accessories, watches and fine jewelry. Chanel is our registered trademark for fragrances, cosmetics, clothing, accessories and other lovely things. Although our style is justly famous, a jacket is not "a Chanel jacket" unless it is ours, and somebody else's cardigans are not "Chanel for now". And even if we are flattered by such tributes to out fame as "Chanel-issime, Chanel-ed, Chanels and Chanel-ized", PLEASE DON'T. Our lawyers positively detest them. We take out trademark seriously.
