The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: H&M x Maison Martin Margiela CONFIRMED, Christian Louboutin Loses Red Sole Appeal Against Zara, and Zuhair Murad Designs for Jennifer Lopez’s Tour
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

H&M confirmed their collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela today. The limited edition line will go on sale Nov 15th. The collection will include men’s and women’s pieces, as well as accessories. So who’s excited? (Vogue UK)

• Word is Lady Gaga will be the cover girl for Vogue‘s September issue. (WWD)

• Watch Rebecca Minkoff and Leandra Medine (aka The Man Repeller) ready themselves for the CFDA awards by filming a video spoof of Carly Rae Jepsen‘s ‘Call Me Maybe’. This video confirms my suspicions: I’m the only person who doesn’t like this song. (The Fashion Fiend)


• Christian Louboutin has lost yet another red sole lawsuit, this time against fast fashion knockoffer retailer, Zara. Back in 2011, Louboutin filed a lawsuit against the brand for selling a pair of red-soled shoes that resembled   their “Yoyo” shoe. Zara fired back with an appeal, saying that the terms of Louboutin’s red-sole trademark were too vague, and they were therefore justified in producing the shoe. A French court has ruled in favor of Zara, saying there is no way that consumers would confuse the Zara pair for a set of real Loubies. Does this mean every store and their momma will now be producing red-soled shoes? Is this the end of Louboutin’s iconic sole? (Grazia)

• Poland’s Crackow School of Art and Design is giving away spaces in their week-long summer classes to six lucky winners. If you’re interested in fashion (and a free Euro trip), apply here for a chance to win.

Jennifer Lopez has been wearing a lot of Zuhair Murad as of late, and she has no intention of stopping. The Beirut-based desinger has been tapped to outfit Ms. Lopez for her summer tour, which kicks off in South America on June 15. What do you think of this look? (WWD)


• Watch Vashtie Kola lend her styling expertise to the good folks at Target. (A Bullseye View)

    VERY excited about H&M and Margiela! Praying for all those who will have to box for a piece…..

  2. I’m really excited about Margiela and H&M, that should be good! I hope this doesn’t mean Zara is going to come out with a series of red soled shoes—that’s just wrong. Losing against YSL is one thing, but Zara who knocks off everything in sight?

  3. k says:

    ugh! It must be annoying for CL after working hard at his designs ‘everyone and their mama’ is gonna be rocking CL look-a-likes! I mean its great for people like me who can’t afford CLs (though Zara isnt exactly cheap, saw a leather jacket for 100 n smn pounds wtf?) but still what’s next? Hermes? Chanel?

  4. Alexis says:

    super excited about H&M and Margiela. Might have to fake sick that day *cough cough*

  5. Yes, everyone will be making red soled shoes now. Oh well, *shrugs

  6. duh says:

    they already have many red sole shoes for sale at barefeet

  7. Brittany says:

    I hope it’s the end of Louboutin’s red sole. They shouldn’t be able to block anyone from having red soled shoes.

  8. Monica says:

    loved Vashtie’s target collab

  9. Marsha D says:

    He should change his branding now…..I think what Zara’s did was tacky. Let the man make his iconic trademark. They knew what they were doing in the first place…and their lack of creativity is shameless.

  10. Cookie says:

    Jihan, you are not alone in your dislike of that song… I truly don’t get the hype.

  11. Myranda says:

    My friends and I make it a ritual to camp out for select H&M collabs. Good food, booze and a sleeping bag.

  12. lack of creativity indeed!!!!!!!!!!! well spoken Marsha D, i feel bad for CL….shame on zara lost some respect from me.

  13. live laugh love says:

    “Imitation isn’t always the sincerest form of flatter!” But he have a lot of celebrities who are loyal to wearing The real thing so he shouldn’t even stress over it!

  14. livelaughlove says:

    “Imitation isn’t always the sincerest form of flatter!” But he have a lot of celebrities who wear him (CL) and are loyal to wearing the real thing so he shouldn’t even stress over it!

  15. Missy says:

    I’ll be first in line to purchase red soled shoes from Zara! Negative.

    Whatever happened to creativity? Zara’s creative team should leave red bottoms alone and do what they are paid to do which is not hack off another artist’s mark.

    These heels will always be CL knock-offs, and if you’re going to purchase knockoffs, why spend over $20 for them?!

    Any self-respecting fashion lover would not be caught wearing those knockoffs. Feel free to disagree … but then we know where you stand.

    Looking forward to seeing what CL will do next, since he’s a true artist paving the way for these copy cats.

    Sorry for the rant, but it’s bigger than CL and Zara, I’m just so over these “fashion” companies ripping off ideas from artists.
