A mini summer storm is shaking the small world of fashion. Christian Louboutin, a favorite among fashionistas, famous for wearing the red sole to the rank of must-have accessory among all identifiable shoemaker, has been dismissed after a trial the opponent to Yves Saint Laurent the latter from start marketing shoes with red soles.
The federal court in New York has ruled that, for they are very recognizable, famous designer shoes could not be considered as a trademark and the red color could not be the exclusive preserve of a trademark or a model. Yet it seems that the creator of 48 years has filed patents in this direction, without the latter being systematically endorsed.
The fact remains that Christian Louboutin, with its recognizable among all shoes, has created a jewel of the luxury industry and attract everything into account stylish fashion ambassadors. Sold at least 500 euros a pair of stilettos shoe are real jewelry, a drastic vigilance against counterfeiting and competition.
Therefore, it would have astonished that Christian Louboutin is copied by some obscure labels, keen to get some crumbs of dreams generated by the designer. However, it is absolutely inspiring a prestigious house YSL, IN ADDITION belonging to a group ostensibly fighting against counterfeiting, come enjoy playing opportunists junk at the expense of a brand that has developed a distinctive product and quality if any.
The case certainly does not stop there, but the house Saint Laurent, if she won a sole that first battle, harvest red card elegance and ethical side.
