Dissimilarity between women bags and women shoes



On July 18, 2006, the ECJ confirmed the Court of First Instance and upheld that women bags and women shoes have a different purpose. As shoes are used to dress feet whereas bags are only used to carry objects, these goods are not interchangeable and not in competition. For the Court, the search for a certain aesthetic harmony is a common feature for the entire fashion sector and is thus a too broad factor to justify a similarity. Their complementary aspect was also denied considering that no demonstration had been made as to how unusual or shocking would be a bag that would not perfectly match somebodys shoes.
