NEW YORK — Looking to avoid a contentious courtroom battle, Naeem Khan and his former creative director Lionel Geneste agreed Monday to settle a breach of contract dispute in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Geneste, the designer’s right-hand man from 2003 through the middle of 2006, will receive $125,000 — 75 percent of which will be paid Aug. 19. Both Geneste, who was scheduled to testify Monday morning, and Khan, who planned to take the stand for a third time, said they were relieved to put the case behind them, though each felt that way for different reasons.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
