The shape of Christian Dior’s Saddle bag is not a significant enough departure from the typical designs coming out of the fashion industry to warrant a handbag-specific trademark registration. That is what the Second Board of Appeal of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (“EUIPO”) asserted in a decision early this month, refusing to register the shape of LVMH-owned Dior’s well-known handbag for use in connection with various types of leather goods, including bags, as a three-dimensional trademark, but letting Dior’s application move forward for other goods.

That’s not to say that there isn’t plenty to get excited about. On the festive circuit, the fall 2022 runways saw metallic and sparkling bags shimmer down the runway, doubling down on the Roaring Twenties aesthetic that emerged post-pandemic.

But a sea change is afoot.

And that includes some of the biggest names in fashion. Stella McCartney, a longtime friend of the Earth and investor in renewable materials, launched her first official mushroom handbag.…
