Tomi Lahren Launches Athleisure Line for Gun Lovers (Vogue)
Over the weekend, Fox News political correspondent Tomi Lahren announced the launch of her new athleisure collection with Alexo Athletica, a company (in)famous for their line of “Signature Carrywear™” — athletic leggings and shorts with built-in gun holsters. Yes, you read that right — yoga pants for packing heat. Lahren’s own collection is merely “Carrywear™ Lite,” meaning it is not designed to carry a firearm, which seems odd given Lahren’s own stance on guns. One can’t help but wonder why she chose to leave this particular feature off her first collection. Did she think it would sell better without it? Maybe she’s planning that for her next collection, along with an AR-15 sling and sporty bullet sash.

Some have told me I’m too “controversial” to have an athleisure line, that conservatives should just stick to politics and Trump cheerleading. My response? Watch me. Introducing Freedom by Tomi Lahren by @alexoathletica full line available now. #TeamTomi #FreedombyTomiLahren #Alexo #athleisure
Adidas Takes Legal Action Against JCrew (The Fashion Law)
JCrew loves a good stripe, but Adidas is taking issue with a particular red white and blue configuration they say violates their three-strip trademark. According to The Fashion Law, “’As a result of [its] extensive use and promotion of the three-stripe mark,’ adidas claims that it ‘has built up and now owns extremely valuable goodwill that is symbolized by the mark,’ and with that in mind, it argues that such rights are at risk because ‘consumers familiar with the goods and services long associated with [its] three- stripe mark are likely to assume that the goods and services offered under [J. Crew’s striped trademark] originate from the same source, or that they are affiliated, connected, or associated with [adidas].’”
Poor JCrew. With all the troubles they have been having over the last few years, this is the last thing they need. Also, let’s be honest, who is really going to confuse these two designs?
