  • Reports have surfaced that luxury behemoth LVMH has its eye on a stake in Proenza Schouler. Rumored to have considered the design duo for the Dior job, if new reports are true the company could take hold of the company as it has with labels like J. W. Anderson and Nicholas Kirkwood. Many think that Delphine Arnault, daughter of LVMH owner Bernard Arnault, is behind the maneuver. (Style)

With the ruling having been scheduled for a reveal today, the two parties have decided to try to work out a deal on the charges brought against Ghesquiere. Balenciaga is seeking about $9.4 million in damages after Ghesquiere made statements about the company in a magazine interview that they say violated their separation agreement. (WWD)
