Monsieur Louboutin gets a (statement) Celebration

Several months ago, Mr. Louboutin faced YSL in a downtown Manhattan courthouse, fighting to win the rights to his famous red soles. If you arent familiar, YSL made a shoe with red bottoms almost identical to those of fame from Christian Louboutin. 
No decision was made in that first hearing, however. Last week, Louboutin took on YSL again in downtown Manhattan. Both attorneys faced off. One citing that this specific shade of red should be able to be trademarked by Louboutin, and the YSL attorney claiming no one can have a trademark on a shade of color. As far as I understand, we are still waiting for a decision.

Within days of the battle in court, world famous department store Bergdorf Goodman hosted Monsieur Louboutin with a pretty grand celebration. Shoppers got to meet in and get their red bottoms from the new collection signed by him. I just have to wonder, was this a subtle statement by Bergdorf's to show their support for the designer that so many New York women love?

Ill let you decide.

You can read about the event on Bergdorf Goodman's blog here.

Regardless, the windows were quite impressive as always.

  1. It will be interesting to see how this turns out!!

    The window displays were amazingggggg. I want to break the glass, take all the shoes and RUN.

  2. It will be interesting to see what happens with this!

  3. It's def a statement! I think that YSL shouldn't be copying Louboutin but YSL is right that Louboutin can't trademark a color. Buuut how many knockoffs are made all the time that get away with it? I guess it's becuase YSL is huge...

  4. I think it was definitely a statement and a smart one at that; Louboutin shoes are so hot right now and deservedly so. xo style, she wrote

  5. Ah, that looks amazing! I personally think YSL was wrong to infringe on the sole; it's patented, after all.

  6. the shoes themselves are a statement... this is amazing!

  7. I did hear about this case--interesting for sure to see how it turns out!
