When Bieber recently unveiled his first women's scent, the fruity floral notes weren't the only thing that had editors, bloggers and fragrance fanatics intrigued. The teen heartthrob's perfume bottle instantly drew comparisons to Jacobs' Lola, particularly its exaggerated petal-shaped top.
WWD's Bridget Foley sat down with the designer, who will receive the CFDA's Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award next week, and asked Jacobs about the likeness.
"Yep, yep. We just had a conversation about it. Coty said, "Do we sue them?" and I said, "You know what? Let everyone else say what they want." I received Google [Alerts] about people saying it was derivative. We're not going to do anything about it," he told WWD.
Jacobs continues, "But you know, I look around the room and I look at the work we've done and a quote I always bastardize but I really believe in, is something Chanel said: "He who insists on his own creativity has no memory."
