Christian Louboutin is suing Yves Saint Laurent charging him for ripping off his infamous trademarked red sole.
"In 1992 I incorporated the red sole into the design of my shoes. This happened by accident as I felt that the shoes lacked energy so I applied red nail polish to the sole of a shoe. This was such a success that it became a permanent fixture."Christin Louboutin sole has been trade marked with the US patent since 1997.
Louboutin has filed for1 million in damages after YSL debuted their own red sole version in there in their spring 2011 collection.
The lawsuit said: ''The location of the bright color on the out sole of a woman's pump is said to provide an alluring flash of red when a woman walks down the street, or on the red carpet of a special event.''
On the other hand the Rose Ghosn, managing director of Double Bay Luxury shoe store Cosmopolitan shoes, has fired back claiming ''YSL should be suing Louboutin. Louboutin has been knocking off every single pair of YSLs for years,''. Adding that other Brands such as Dolce and Gabanna has experimented with red soles in the past.
