Balenciaga Sues Nicolas Ghesquière; Jake Gyllenhaal, the Modelizer?
Ghesquière Sued by Balenciaga: Nicolas Ghesquière is being sued by his former employer, Balenciaga, for violating French freedom of expression mandates, which allow companies to seek damages when an employee or former employee “potentially imperils an enterprise,” reports WWD. The charges stem from Ghesquière’s interview in System magazine, in which he basically stated that Balenciaga’s mounting calendar of collections had driven him to professional misery. An initial hearing is expected this fall. [WWD]
Jake Gyllenhaal the Modelizer?: Jake Gyllenhaal, beloved heartthrob and actor, has been accused of being a newly-minted modelizer.

Abercrombie’s Taylor Swift Recall: Taylor Swift fans have ganged up on Abercrombie & Fitch for the brand’s shirt that reads ‘# more boyfriends than t.s.’, which riffs on Swift’s tabloid reputation for having an endless supply of male companions. (Not to mention that the shirt does not follow procedural Internet language, as hashtags do not employ the use of spaces or punctuation.) The massive fan outcry prompted A&F to pull the store from store shelves. [The Cut]
