German born Plein started out in furniture design in the late 1990s and eventually switched to fashion, earning the name “King of Bling” in the media for his eccentric designs. Celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan and Fergie have featured in his advertising campaigns.
“At the end of 2017, we found out that he had started the new Plein-Sport line in which he reproduced this particular cat on t-shirts, hoodies, shoes and so on,” Puma’s head of intellectual property, Neil Narriman, said.
Some of Plein’s clothes on the website feature a tiger’s head while others are adorned with a leaping tiger. Narriman said there are also other design features similar to Puma‘s.
The temporary injunction from a regional court in Duesseldorf prevents Plein’s online store selling in Germa..

Here's a round-up of our five favorite shows from London Fashion Week: Men's, all world-class designers who reinforce London's position as a global fashion capital.
