MILAN (Reuters) – Italian luxury brand Valentino and Internet giant Amazon have filed a joint lawsuit against New York-based Kaitlyn Pan Group for allegedly counterfeiting Valentino’s shoes and offering them for sale online.

The lawsuit regard’s the fashion group’s iconic Valentino Garavani Rockstud shoes, the companies said in a statement.

Amazon said it had shut down Kaitlyn Pan’s seller account on its platform in September 2019.

“Despite multiple notices of infringement and a cease and desist order, Kaitlyn Pan continues to import, distribute, sell, and offer infringing products on,” it added.

Amazon has long been rumoured to be readying a new luxury fashion site to rival Tmall Luxury Pavilion, owned by Alibaba, but LVMH and other top luxury groups say the risk of counterfeiting is high on such platforms.
