Ysl vs. Louboutin: Red Sole

The issue that has been on everyone's mouth, was it ok for Louboutin to sue Yves Saint Laurent for using red sole?
I think that Louboutin could be outraged by the fact but unfairly. It is true that when we mention red sole we mean Louboutin's shoes, when we see photos of celebrities on red carpet we instantly think of our favorite French shoe designer but honestly, soles are parts of outer shell of the shoe. It would be like fighting over the fabric of the shoe or texture.

Christian Louboutin and his "trademark" red sole

Also considering the fact that YSL always has a specific shape of shoe I don’t think any respectable fashionista can mistake YSl “pallais” with Louboutin’s shoes beside in cases in which red sole was used in YSL’s designs was to match the rest of outer shell of the shoes, which is why I think that the lawsuit was unnecessary.

YSL "Palais" shoes

As for red sole trademark, I think we've seen a lot of non-Louboutin shoes with red sole. They are indeed knock offs but the shape is simple, classic it cannot be registered as trademark and louboutin cannot be against their production. I admit that we all associate red sole with only Louboutin and any other brand, and he was the only one who stick with red sole on every of his shoe. But let's be honest, the red sole was used as a part of a design far before we all hear about Christian louboutin, for instant it was worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in The Wizard of Oz.

On the other hand, Louboutin red is very specific (he was allowed to register Pantone-18 Chinese Red shade as his trademark) and easily recognizable, was it really necessary for ysl to use the exact shade?
 What do you think about this issue? Let me know I’m very curious.

Did I mention my obsession for metalics?! I'm still crazy about that, and currently I'm looking for metalic leather jacket, add some studs and I'm ready to die for it. :P  The skirt I'm wearing is actually  vintage dress. It's one of my best finds, it can be worn both in summer (considering Polish weather this summer) and autumn.
I hope you will enjoy my outfit.

Love MMMagiela 'Artisanal'

Love the fact that Magiela incorporated some colours into collection.
That skirt would look so good with many things.

Margiela's print!! Love it.

Rain coat from tape, it calls for new DIY.

I think Lady Gaga found her new dress.

Sheer white + electric blue = perfection

The cut of the blazer-vest is beautiful and very wearable.

Neon shoes, maxi skirt with patent detailing and beautiful cocoon shaped cardi.

The most badass jacket ever.

Sheer suit, it  doen't get any better.


Maldoror fall 2011
Just imagine it in white.
The question is who was first and which one is better.
