Yves Saint Laurent kicks back at Christian Louboutin
YSL has begun a campaign against Louboutin and his famed shoes on the basis that the latter is certainly not the only shoemaker to adorn his creations with luxurious red outsoles.
"Red outsoles are a commonly used ornamental design feature in footwear, dating as far back as the red shoes worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in 'The Wizard of Oz' " said YSL in court papers.
This latest development in the ongoing feud began in April when Louboutin slapped YSL with a USD 1 million trademark infringement suit.
YSL now alleges that Louboutin fraudulently claimed "exclusive" use of red soles in his trademark application. "As an industry leader who had devoted his entire professional life to women's footwear, Mr. Louboutin either knew or should have known about some or all of the dozens of footwear models that rendered his sworn statement false, " YSL claims.
Not only does YSL claim that it has been selling shoes with crimson soles since the 1970s, long before Louboutin began his fashion line, but also that Louboutin's suit is part of an "anti-competitive campaign " that included pressuring high-end retailers like Saks and Neiman Marcus to pull YSL's shows off their shelves.
Louboutin's lawyers have not yet commented on the matter.
please don't attack me with lawyers; i swear this is for personal use only.
