Mulberry aims to bag a comeback with price cuts and British vibe 23.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
After an ill-fated move upmarket, the luxury brand is concentrating on winning back customers

Deep in the Somerset countryside Mulberry is working hard to rekindle the popularity of a fashion brand whose allure has suffered in recent years, ever since it made a reckless leap upmarket.

Most of Mulberry’s trademark leather handbags are produced in south-west England, including the Cara Delevingne collection of “town to country” and “train to plane” bags designed in collaboration with the 22-year-old British model and featuring her favourite camouflage print.

Manchester City lifted by Yaya Touré after Swansea’s bright start 22.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Yaya Touré came to Manchester City’s rescue again just as the defending champions were labouring in the second half and looking short of attacking ideas. With David Silva still injured and Sergio Agüero having a quiet game, City’s attempts to stay in touch with Chelsea at the top of the Premier League were not amounting to much until their influential midfielder suddenly found the energy for one of his trademark bursts into the area. Touré himself had not been having a particularly impressive game up until that point, and when he is below his best City usually are too, but when Fernandinho set him up with a nonchalant back heel pass into the area just after the hour mark there was no stopping the Ivorian. Storming into the area Touré latched on to the ball and placed a low shot into Lukasz Fabianski’s bottom corner almost without breaking stride. It was Touré’s first league goal of the season at the Etihad, an indication of how out of sorts he has been, and only once in the lead did City show the sort of ...

DC Comics set to sue La Liga club Valencia over 'Batman logo' 21.11.2014 DNA: Mumbai
In what may transpire to be a quirky case, comic giants DC are reportedly set to sue Spanish soccer club Valencia, for the usage of a 'Batman' image in the club's logo. Coincidentally, Valencia's club logo is eerily similar to that of the trademark Batman image, and it has featured on their club crests since 1919. DC have registered a complaint with the European Union Office, for 'violation' of rights, and have stated that the logo should be 'exclusive' to their organization.  But things may not be so easy at all for DC, since Valencia have used the logo, long before Batman came into existence (in 1939), and the comic moguls will require a miracle if they are to win their battle against the La Liga high-fliers. It will be interesting to see as to how this ongoing dispute between both parties pans out, and whether Valencia do manage to shrug off DC and Batman, and protect their club heritage. Valencia may be sued by DC comics for usage of the 'Batman' logo.Valencia FC's Twitter ...

The show: Im a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here The philosophy: OK, watching Amy Willerton flirt with Joey Essex might not be the optimal way to learn about 18th-century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau and his theory of the social contract, which suggests that human beings must voluntarily agree to shared moral and social responsibilities for a political system to have legitimacy. Yet the show does bring its urban-based contestants closer to a state of nature, which could prompt ...

The trademarks for Poiret fashion house are up for auction this month, which suggests the heritage brand might see a revival. From Carven to Schiaparelli, Lauren Cochrane reports on why labels love to relaunch

Credited with pioneering designer perfume, doing away with the corset and throwing some great parties, Paul Poiret was a giant of Parisian fashion in the 1910s.

Stewart Lee: The Imaginary Liberal Comedy Cabal will crush the Ukips into dust 6.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Nigel Farage and the comedian Andrew Lawrence have accused a politically correct comedy clique of targeting Ukip and favouring talentless women and ethnics. The gloves are off, says founding member Stewart Lee Last Saturday, I took my children on a tour of the Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden. I explained to them that they were going to visit the magical headquarters of an ancient secret society, to blow their childish minds. Be honest. Dont you wish I was your dad? Wheres your dad taken you this weekend? The Cumberland Pencil Museum? Barometer World? The Morpeth Bagpipe Centre? Sadly, the temple and museum were closed that day, as the freemasons were assembled within, deciding the future of the world. But, luckily for my disappointed children, suddenly hundreds of freemasons streamed from the temple into Covent Garden, each dressed in trademark black suit, and carrying a little bag just big enough to hold his apron, his dagger and some Shippams fish paste sandwiches from his freemason mum, in case he ...

'Khadi' clothing already trademarked in several European countries 4.11.2014 DNA: Top News
Even as the Indian government tries its level best to promote 'khadi', it seems the brand has already been trademarked in countries like Germany, Spain and Hungary. The government is said to be mulling a furture course of action. This might include taking up the issue with the European authorities. The Narendra Modi government has objected to the German company's attempt to use the khadi trademark for selling a range of Indian-origin products, including shampoos, soaps and oils in European markets. The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), an arm of the ministry of micro, small and medium enterprises, has sought cancellation of the trademark given to the company by Belgium-headquartered Office for Harmonization in Internal Markets. This is the latest instance of infringement of intellectual property rights but the government is in for a tough task since 'khaddar' and 'khadi' are common across the Indian subcontinent — from Bangladesh to Pakistan. According to a report, in India there are around ...
