(Newser) – It's on. The Hells Angels are suing the fashion house of late designer Alexander McQueen for stealing the club's trademarked symbols, the Telegraph reports. The gang claims McQueen's imprint used its motifs on a $2,329 handbag, a $1,595 dress, a four-finger silver ring, and, of course, a pashmina scarf. The suit claims McQueen and associated stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, were trying to exploit the "great commercial value" of the gang's image.
