    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #75 – Jennifer Wang

    September 13th, 2013

    One of my favorite looks is an outfit consisting of rather somber colors with one single pop of vibrant color. Therefore Jennifer’s look was exactly what I am into. On her shopping trip through New York’s SoHo she was wearing a beautiful crème and black leather  jacket with zip-off sleeves over a simple Helmut Lang t-shirt with J Brand chinos. Jennifer was walking on red soles, sporting a pair all over studded Louboutin oxfords and finished off her look with – and this is where the pop of color comes in – an eye-catching electric blue clutch by Comme des Garcons.

    Latest Fashion News: Jessica Simpson accused of knocking off Christian Louboutin

    April 5th, 2012

    Do you see a difference between these two sandals? Ya, have a look, look very close. We have to admit it’s very hard to tell a difference, isn’t it? Jessica Simpson‘s hot-pink sandal called “Evangela” (sandal to your right) was recently seen in Elle’s april issue. It’s one of her latest shoe designs and retails for $98,-. Christian Louboutin‘s $995,- “Staratata” sandal (shoe to your left) on the other hand is a Spring 2010 invention and therefore the “original”.

    Again, Mr. Louboutin was not really amused when he saw another knock off of his shoe after fighting with Yves Saint Laurent for his red sole trademark.

    3_The 10 most fashionable moments of 2011: Christophe Decarnin leaving Balmain

    Due to the absence at Christophe Decarnin’s Fashion Show for Balmain in Paris, the fashion world got a bit confused whether the rumors of having a nervous breakdown might be really true. The fact of the matter was that Decarnin had been absent from the label for months due to creative differences with the brand’s management. Since then Balmain womenswear designer Olivier Rousteing took over the reans of Decarnin’s position.

    Unfortunately this is no good news.

    Latest Fashion News: Sued red-soled shoes

    September 21st, 2011

    Christian Louboutin or Yves Saint Laurent – whose shoes are these now below? Wasn’t the red sole Loubou’s trademark? Jepp, it was! As of a couple of weeks, a judge denied Christian Louboutin’s request that Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) stop selling his trademark of red-soled shoes. Consumer confusion and the use of the color “red” as a design element on an article of fashion wasn’t enough to sue YSL. In the end, YSL has been making and selling red-soled shoes since the seventies. What’s on your mind. Is Loubou’s claim appropriate or a little overboard?
