Breaking: Burberry Sues NYC Boutique Variazioni For $2 Million Over Fakes

We broke the news 2 weeks ago about Cartier suing sample sale site Hautelook for selling fakes, and now Burberry is suing  Variazioni, the upscale New York City boutique for $2 million on the charge of selling fake versions of its clothing in its stores.

According to official court documents SHEfinds obtained, the merchandise, including quilted jackets, raincoats, shirts, zip-up jackets and sports pants as well as labels, tags, and packaging were found to be “not authentic.”

However, this is not Variazioni’s first time selling faux Burberry. In June 2009, Burberry purchased jackets and shirts from the store,  and Varizioni admitted to selling 86 knock-offs and signed an agreement to only sell authentic Burberry in its stores. Now have a $2 million case (and we’d imagine some pretty pissed customers) on their hands.

Opt for the splurge and shop real Burberry from Saks or Net-a-Porter. Then check out our guides to the best trench coats and our guides to the best work pants. Sign up for  the SHEFinds newsletter to receive exclusive fashion news.
