Louboutin vs. Saint Laurent

August 22, 2011

We all know Louboutin’s when we see them. The classic red sole has been an iconic symbol of Christian Louboutin shoes since the design house began sporting them on their fabulous shoes in 1992. In 2008 Louboutin was awarded a trademark for their red soles and has filed a lawsuit against the fashion power house Yves Saint Laurent. YSL is the subject of this suit for selling red-soled shoes of its own, claiming that red has been a signature colour of the fashion house for decades. Still no ruling, but we’ll be sure to watch out for the outcome of this trial.

My two cents: Though i’m more of a YSL shoe kinda-gal, I’ve only ever associated red soles with Louboutins. And even though its been less than 10 years, any fashion savvy consumer recognizes a Loubou from miles away. Get your own iconic symbol YSL!
