Christian is in the process of suing Yves Saint Laurent for ‘copying’ his trademark red soles, so we wonder what action he’ll take against the 16-year-old girl currently making a living out of designing DIY red sole stickers.
Rosso Solini Designer Soles is the brainchild of 16-year-old Irish Tara Haughton, who’s designed a range of stickers for shoes that allow you to transform tired old pumps into somewhat jazzier styles (read: fake your friends into thinking you’re wearing Louboutins).
So, how does one get around it? By designing a whole range of colours and prints to play the ‘oh, but I’m just making my shoes pretty’ card. Clever.
A pack of 3 will cost you €17.50, which is significantly cheaper than a pair of Louboutins, but still, we feel a bit uncomfortable about this.
