Nike is Suing Three of its former Designers Who Left for Adidas

15 Dec

Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 12.46.51 AMNike is suing three of its former employees for upwards of $10 million for allegedly stealing trade secrets when they jumped ship for rival sportswear brand Adidas. The Fashion Law reports that Marc Dolce (Nike’s former global design director), Mark Miner (Nike’s former senior global footwear designer), and Denis Dekovic (Nike’s former senior design director) are being sued for contract breaching , unfair competition, and violations of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act. 

Not only are the former employees accused of leaking design secrets, but they also allegedly consulted with Adidas long before leaving Nike, in particular on Adidas’s new Brooklyn-based studio. (Nike says it’s just a rip-off of its own labs). Adidas is in hot water, too: Nike claims that the rival company knew of the contract breaching and promised the three employees that it would pay for legal coverage if Nike decided to go after them legally. via Hmmm I wonder if this have anything to do with Kanye West?

Fashion News: Rick Owens x Adidas

12 Jun


Paris based designer Rick Owens has collaborated with Adidas to create four  styles of running shoes for women and six for men. According to WWD, Owens is a dedicated gym buff but he despises cardio. All in an effort to motivate a running habit.

Images for the collection will be released during the Spring/Summer show in Paris on June 27. This should be a interesting collab. We will see in due time.
