Laboutin Lawsuit

Posted on April 10, 2011


christian laboutin blackChristian Laboutin’s many marvelous shoe designs all have one thing in common…the bright red sole. This has been Laboutin’s signature for as long as I can remember and the brand trademarked the red soles in 2008. Now, though, it seems that everyone wants a bit of colour! Laboutin is scheduled to take design label YSL to court for turning their soles red in a recent collection! I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this…it all sounds a little petty. Laboutin’s reason is that customers may get confused and purchase YSL’s thinking they are his designs.  Personally I’d like to think that consumers are more intelligent than to rely on the colour of the sole to establish the designer!
