The lawsuit, which is the second one filed by Louboutin in a week, accuses Carmen Steffens of infringement on brand’s red trademarked soles.
In response the the lawsuit, Carmen Steffens of Brazil issued a statement, citing:
“The tones are not the same, and, as catalogs dating from 1996 can prove, Carmen Steffens shoes contain soles of all colors, including red.”
With a lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent and now Carmen Steffens of Brazil,will all red-soled shoes, no matter what tone, be sued by Christian Louboutin?
And if these infringement lawsuits are successful, how will this impact the fashion industry as a whole?
Only time will tell.
