Outlet stores typically sell excess or old stock at a discount, although some retailers also manufacture goods specifically for them.
The lawsuit in the latest in a long line of cases accusing luxury retailers of marking up goods sold in outlet stores with made-up manufacturer prices.
Last year, U.S. retailer Michael Kors agreed to pay $4.88 million and change its sales practices to settle a similar class action lawsuit after it was accused of creating an “illusion” of deep discounts.
