Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit with lawsuit over underwear design

Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been hit with a lawsuit relating to one of their underwear designs.

The model and her make-up mogul sister first launched their Kendall + Kylie label in 2012, with the collection featuring a range of apparel and accessories.

However, Kendall and Kylie are now facing a lawsuit from executives at New York-based fabric company Klauber Brothers Inc., who are claiming the siblings have copied a lace design.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, lawyers for Klauber allege a thong printed with Kylie's name featuring a lace waistband resembles a "very specific" design the brand owns the copyright to.

They also claim that they hold the copyright for another type of lace Kendall and Kylie have utilised on a black slip. Editors at the website have posted side-by-side images of the Kendall + Kylie lingerie and Klauber's lace.

Lawyers for Klauber are seeking all profits from the sales of the two designs that allegedly infringe on their copyright.

Representatives for the Kendall + Kylie brand, as well as the celebrity sisters, have not yet responded to the claims in the lawsuit.

This is not the first time the Kendall + Kylie label has been hit with a lawsuit.

Back in 2017, the reality TV stars were sued by photographer Michael Miller for allegedly using one of his images of rap icon Tupac Shakur on a T-shirt without permission. The T-shirts were quickly removed from sale, and in April 2018, Kendall and Kylie settled the photo rights lawsuit. Full terms were not released.
