Michael Kors is getting hit with a lawsuit for trademark infringement and “other causes of action.”

Sounds strange for an A-list designer, doesn’t it?

Anyhow, the party filing suit is Tony Duquette, Inc., which controls the  intellectual property rights associated with the late designer and artist Tony Duquette.

They allege that Kors infringed the Duquette proprietary name and trademark by producing and marketing a Kors Resort Collection using the name Duquette without permission.

The Duquette clan is also claiming that Kors used the Abrams book “Tony Duquette,” photographs, images and patterns from the book, and images of Duquette and his long time business associate and co-designer, Hutton Wilkinson, in advertising and promoting the Kors collection.

Damages and injunctive relief are sought.

No word on the amount yet. Stay tuned.
