The legal battle between Ralph Esmerian, owner of Fred Leighton, and Merrill Lynch is heating up, with everything from Esmerian's home to potentially the Leighton business on the line.
Esmerian has been tangling with Merrill Lynch Mortgage Capital in New York Supreme Court since January over the $183.3 million the financial giant said it is owed on two loans that went sour. Esmerian has since paid down $10 million of the loan.
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)
