Louboutin has spoken out for the first time about his court case against Yves Saint Laurent, following allegations the luxury fashion house copied his famous red soles.
"I have the biggest respect for the house of Yves Saint Laurent,” the designer tells the Evening Standard. “Having discussed the matter with them and not been able to reach an agreement, we have had to take this to court. My company has a trademark on the red sole and if we don’t enforce it this would leave the door open for other brands to copy us while jeopardising the identity of the Louboutin red sole. No one before me has ever used a coloured sole to define a brand’s identity. The red sole has become widely recognised as the distinct sign of my brand in the eyes of women all over the world.” - Christian Louboutin.
Jeg er personligt glad for begge modeller, men forstår pointen i retssagen. Hvad hvis alle sko lige pludselig blev Louboutin-look-a-likes??
Så ville vi i hvert fald alle kunne få et walk-in som Chloé Kardishian;
