Dolce & Gabbana go bananas over Dolce… and Banana 

We can think of a few puns involving several luxury brands names, but perhaps none quite as real – or costly – as the aforementioned ‘Dolce & Banana’.

WWD report how Beller has been served with a lawsuit by the Italian brand, even though she has since modified the name of her store – which was unsurprisingly a hit with tourists photographing themselves before her shopfront – to simply, ‘Banana.’

The affidavit accuses Beller of “objectionable conduct” and “diluting” the Milan Fashion Week brand’s namesake.

“The name Dolce and Banana makes a mockery of the well-known trademark Dolce & Gabbana,” read the complaint, filed to the Cape Town High Court.
