NEW YORK — Would the legal mess between Jones Apparel Group and Polo Ralph Lauren have happened if Sidney Kimmel were still ceo of Jones? In a word, yes.
Although Kimmel, currently chairman of Jones, has had a close business relationship with Ralph Lauren, Kimmel told WWD he fully supported his company’s move last week to file a $550 million breach of contract lawsuit against Polo and Jackwyn Nemerov, former president of Jones, over the Lauren by Ralph Lauren license.
