Fashion house Yves Saint Laurent won the plagiarism lawsuit. Recall that about a month ago, shoe designer Christian Louboutin sued the fashion house, accusing him of plagiarizing the famous red sole of shoes, when YSL released several models of boats with red soles. Note that Christian Louboutin was determined to recover moral damage in the amount of $ 1 million from YSL.
YSL lawyers have proven in court that the red sole is not the property of Louboutin. “This is a popular technique of ornamental design, widely used back in the 17th century,” the court documents say. “In addition, the shoes of the popular heroine of The Wizard of the Emerald City, Dorothy, were also on a red sole.”
