Louboutin wins court ruling against anti-Islam group

Christian Louboutin has won an injunction against a Belgian anti-Islamic group, which used its shoes in a provocative advert without permission.

The image features a woman wearing the red-soled shoes with words ranging from “Sharia compatible” at the ankle to “stoning” on her thigh, marking possible skirt lengths on her leg.

The posters showed the legs of Anke Vandermeersch, a former Miss Belgium and a senator for the far-right Flemish party Vlaams Belang.

A judge at the Antwerp court has given the party 24 hours to take the posters down.

The party has since tweeted a revised advertisement featuring a yellow-soled stiletto.

Christian Louboutin declined to comment when contacted by Drapers.
