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?

The New Dover Street Market New York City

4 Jan


Last weekend we visited the new Dover Street Market located on the corner of 30th street and Lexington Ave in NYC. For those who are not familiar, you very soon will be. DSM is a multilayer high fashion mega-market! Created by Rei Kawakubo who is also one of the driving forces behind Comme des Garçons. The store is unlike any other retail experience we’ve encountered. Carrying some of the most exclusive brands out today Dover Street offers a little something for everyone. Thom Brown, Rick Owens, Comme des Garçon Play, Simone Rocha, Prada and Moscot to name a few, DSM has brought the most creative out of all of these brands. Architecturally advanced are two words that come to mind when explaining how the interior of the market is set up. Each brand has there own individual mood set that separates the different styles based on each designers aesthetic. We encourage every age of appreciative high end shopper and art appreciator to stop by and partake of the Dover Street Market New York City.
