American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. today announced that it has won a preliminary injunction against Payless ShoeSource, Inc. in a trademark infringement and unfair competition lawsuit.

All that suing comes out of Payless use of the AMERICAN EAGLE mark for footwear and bags.

The ruling now requires Payless to adopt a clear disclaimer stating that AMERICAN EAGLE by Payless is not affiliated with AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS.

AEO contends that the discount shoe chain is deceiving consumers by portraying itself as the owner of “the youth fashion brand American Eagle®” and indicating that it is selling genuine AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS merchandise when in fact it is not.

Shame on you, Payless!


Patricia Field, stylist of Sex and The City and The Devil Wears Prada fame, has worked her way into millions of homes.  

After launching a shoe collection for Payless Shoe Source, she’s working on another project.

She’s announced that she’ll be debuting “Patricia Field’s DESTINATION STYLE(TM) NEW YORK,” to be sold exclusively on HSN — the interactive lifestyle network beamed to 90 million TVs across America.

This September, the 50-piece limited edition collection from the Emmy Award-winning designer will be available exclusively in the U.S.

“DESTINATION STYLE(TM) NEW YORK is about having the perfect pieces for wherever your life takes you, to work, to a party to a night on the town. It’s about expressing your personal style, which is the key to always looking great!” says Field.

No word so far on the prices or the theme of the collection.

We’ll keep you posted.
