Famous designer Christian Louboutin sued fashion house Yves Saint Laurent. Couturier claims that Manhattan stores sell French shoes Yves Saint Laurent, which are almost identical to his signature red-soled shoes. Recall that the red color of the sole of the shoes is the brand name of designer Louboutin from 1992 of the year.
Christian Louboutin demands YSL to withdraw these shoes from sale, as well as pay $ 1 million in compensation for non-pecuniary damage.
“The use of red soles by the defendants in their shoes can be misleading to the public and significantly undermine the Yves Saint Laurent reputation,” Christian Louboutin said in a statement.
Representatives of Yves Saint Laurent have not yet commented on this news.
