• 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)
