Ferrari could sue fashion designer over Instagram posts

Ferrari has threatened to sue a fashion designer over a few Instagram posts. The Italian carmaker says the post "tarnishes the reputation of Ferrari's brands and causes Ferrari further material damage".

One of the pictures in question shows a pair of sneakers on the designer's personal Ferrari 812 Superfast. The designer, Philipp Plein, says that Ferrari's letter is blackmail and he has not deleted the posts from his Instagram account. Ferrari claims that by using pictures of the car with his product, Philipp is using Ferrari's trademark for promotional purposes to increase his product's visibility.

Philipp Plein also says that he bought his first Ferrari 10 years back and also bought a Ferrari recently for his mother as a birthday gift. He also lashed out at Louis Camilleri, CEO of Ferrari, and claims that he is disappointed and disgusted about Ferrari's claim.
