Nicolas Ghesquière SUED By Balenciaga For Breach Of Confidentiality!

Nicolas Ghesquiere is being sued by Balenciaga for breach of confidentiality!

We SO didn't see this one coming!

Nicolas Ghesquière and Balenciaga seemed to have parted ways amicably back in November after a 15-year relationship, but things have definitely soured since then!

In his first interview for System magazine after leaving the fashion house, Nicolas admitted that he had grown unhappy with the way the higher-ups were managing the brand.

One of his most revealing statements more or less accused the powers-that-be of only caring about profit. Nicolas said:

"It was really that lack of culture which bothered me in the end. The strongest pieces that we made for the catwalk got ignored by the business people. They forgot that in order to get to that easily sellable biker jacket, it had to go via a technically mastered piece that had been shown on the catwalk. I started to become unhappy when I realised that there was no esteem, interest, or recognition for the research that I'd done; they only cared about what the merchandisable result would look like."

And though he didn't name any names, the designer's candid confessions did not go over well with his former employers, who are now filing a suit against him for "breach of duty of confidentiality".

OUCH!

While Nicolas gathers his cabal of lawyers, we hope he considers Karl Lagerfeld's advice to strike out on his own, or EVEN BETTER, make a grand announcement that he's taking that rumored Louis Vuitton gig.

Don't let the Man get you down, Nicolas!
