Louboutin Argues For ‘Very Specific Red’ Sole

08 February 2012, 16.38 | Posted in Designer news, Shoes | No comments »


Christian Louboutin in an interview with French newspaper Libération (translation via Vogue UK) laid out his case against YSL for designing a shoe featuring a red sole:

“….it is a red in a specific context [in the way that], there is Ferrari red [and] Hermès orange. Even in the food industry, Cadbury recently won a lawsuit against Nestlé for using purple packaging. All this proves that the colours play a part in a brand’s identity. I’m not saying that red usually belongs to me – I repeat that this is about a precise red, used in a precise location.”

He also shed some light on his own relationship with PPR, a publically-traded company, which owns YSL and has made numerous offers to buy Christian Louboutin, all of which Louboutin has turned down. He then flips from business to personal, going in on YSL’s decision to design shoes with red soles:

“I find it most incredible that a group like PPR would take the risk of defending itself as a plagiarist. They claim to fight against counterfeiting and plagiarism of which they are victims and yet behave like this.”

What a distraction this must be for Louboutin. I wonder sometimes if he doesn’t think, why did we even bother with this in the first place. After all, even though he isn’t the first to do red soles, among people in the know, that design element is metaphorically owned by him. But something in his gut must be telling him to fight another day so in the end we just hope he has his way for reasons we posted here. If he does not, it will be intriguing to see what the fall out will be.

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.

Luxury-label Yves Saint Laurent is preparing to distribute the eighth edition of its Manifesto, a sort of ultra-exclusive YSL lookbook, on the streets of Paris, New York, London, Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong, and for the first time, Los Angeles. It will be handed out on March 5th and those lucky enough to land it will also be the recipient of a YSL tote (shown above) in which the publication is contained. The images contained in Manifesto will first be shown on YSL on the 4th and then handed out to random passerbys in each city the following day. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, it features Arizona Muse, the face of the label’s Spring/Summer 2011 campaign. Via Tokyodandy.
