Christian Louboutin Hired a Private Eye to Investigate Dior’s Use of Red Soles

Christian Louboutin.

According to court papers filed on Tuesday, Christian Louboutin obtained evidence from a private investigator stating that Christian Dior was planning to launch a collection of red shoes with red soles. However, a Dior spokesperson denied that they're doing anything of the sort:

Christian Dior denied Wednesday that it is planning to make red-soled shoes for next season ... “Christian Dior does not manufacture and sell any shoes with a red sole,” a Dior spokeswoman told WWD Wednesday.

The papers were filed by Louboutin's lawyer, Harley Lewin, in connection to the brand's current lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent for using red soles. Apparently, Louboutin hired the private eye to dig up dirt relating to the YSL case, but the investigator obtained information from a salesperson that caused him to suspect Dior as well.

Lewin said that Louboutin would not press charges against Dior. Meanwhile, a ruling on the YSL case will be determined this Friday by New York Southern District of New York judge Victor Marrero.
