According to Het Parool, French fashion brand Louis Vuitton got wind of the well-known and beautifully crafted marzipan handbags from chocolate maker Jordino in Amsterdam and sent them a nasty letter all in French that had to be translated. The message was clear: Jordino was never ever to sell anymore LV bags otherwise they would be fined 40,000 euro for trademark infringement. Although surely an unpleasant surprise, the law is on the side of the Parisians this time around.
However, back in 2011 an art student did battle with Louis Vuitton over an LV handbag depicted in an artwork about Darfur and won.
