YSL versus Louboutin

15 08 2011

War of the Rosette Tiils!!!

Yves Saint Laurent is being sued for trademark infringement for selling shoes that have red outer soles, a style French shoe designer Christian Louboutin insists is his creation.

Louboutin filed the lawsuit Thursday in federal court in Manhattan. He is seeking a court injunction against the sale of the supposed copycat shoes in the U.S. and damages of at least $1 million.

Louboutin was informed by Yves Saint Laurent executives by letter in January that they planned to “continue to sell the infringing footwear,” the lawsuit states.
He introduced the red soles in 1992 and since then they have been on all of the company’s luxury shoes.

Saint Laurent has been selling red-sole shoes under brand names such as Tribute, Tribtoo, Palais and Woodstock at high-end fashion stores that also sell Louboutin footwear, including Saks Fifth AvenueBarneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman, according to the complaint.
