Christian Louboutin wins court case against YSL


Today, Christian Louboutin has finally won his court case against Yves Saint Laurent for selling shoes with all-red soles as they were copying the designer's signature look.

With support from Tiffany & Co, Louboutin's case was eventually given the respect it deserved as Tiffany filed a brief that said a colour can be trademarked and shouldn't be allowed to be copied (like their famous blue boxes).

The designer is now able to trademark the red soles except if the shoe is fully red... strange right?
