Louboutin Vs. YSL

25 January 2012, 20.52 | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 comment »


Christian Louboutin, getting an assist from the fabulous Diane Von Furstenberg, was back in court yesterday, trying to convince the three judges overseeing the case now that the last judge who ruled against him was wrong. (In case you’re totally behind, Louboutin sued YSL for making red-bottom shoes, arguing that it infringes on what has become his brand’s trademark. He lost the first go round.)

No shocker but we’re totally team Louboutin over here. Not anything against YSL, but  let the man have his red bottoms. He earned them for goodness sake. And from a purely aesthetic perspective, you take the red soles away and you have everyone and Payless churning out red-bottom shoes, a totally wretch of a situation that no one wants to see.

Christian Louboutin is asked five questions by New York boutique department store Bergdorf Goodman and charms with his easy manner and just-so French accent. Below are the questions along with snippets from his responses.

What’s your most cherished NYC secret?: The restaurant Quality Meats: “….I’m a meat lover……”
Whose closet would you like to raid?: Loulou de la Falaise: “…She’s been having 30 years of fashion history and so many colors and so many accessories….”
What must have can’t you live without?  I-phone:  ”….It’s difficult because I feel like it’s like an addiction, but it’s definitely, it’s the only addiction that I have so I think I’m fine with it.”
What is the one style you never want to see make a comeback? Clogs: “…for one reason, I love shoes and there’s a thing I love about shoes and it’s the sound of shoes……hearing the sound of a clog is really not nice, not pretty, it’s an ugly sound….”
What is your worst childhood fashion memory: A ski suit: “….I had this incredibly puffy, bright red, ski outfit….”

If you’re a fan, he will be making an appearance at Bergdorf’s on January 31st on the second floor. Click here for details.

CL27 540x475 Christian Louboutin Shoes Spring 2012

Christian Louboutin’s Spring 2012 lineup is now out, with two of the collections call out themes bright colors and a little more foot exposure then we’ve seen in the past. There are the usual two or three over-the-top, borderline vulger styles, which truth be told are what make the brand special and give it its halo of artistry. Louboutin could crank out Pigalle pumps all day and do just fine but it’s his willingness to “go there” without fear on a couple of designs each season that makes him special and above all the rest.

ChristianLouboutinBarneysChesky 540x351 Louboutin x Barneys Windows

Barney’s gives Christian Louboutin his props with a set of store windows dedicated to the red-soled brand, on display now in its Madison Avenue New York, store. Barney’s creative director, Dennis Freedman, was interviewed by Fashionetc (accompanying images shot by Julia Chesky) about the project and had this to say on working with Louboutin:

“Christian has an extraordinary imagination. You see that in his work, but also when you’re with him. He’s a very rare person; it goes well beyond the design of his shoes. The idea of working with someone like that is very exciting. We wanted not just to display the shoes, but reinterpret the shoes—to create a sculpture. That intensified and magnified the design of the shoe. So everything begins with his shoe and creative vision and ends with making it ours. It’s been an incredibly exciting experience.”

Freedman also chats about the upcoming window collaboration with Lady Gaga and says, “I think I won’t be exaggerating to say that’s it’s an incredibly ambitious project on all levels. It will be a big gift to New York City, one that I really believe will be fun and exciting and bring all of her spirit and energy to the store.”
