PARIS — A French court delivered a blow to shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s red-sole trademark last week after it ruled in favor of the local subsidiary of clothing chain Zara over the right to sell red-soled shoes.
The Cour de Cassation, the final court of appeal, upheld a June 2011 decision by a court of appeal in favor of Zara, owned by Spanish manufacturing giant Inditex, and sentenced Louboutin to pay Zara 2,500 euros, or $3,600 at current exchange, as compensation.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
