Former Saint Laurent designer Hedi Slimane has just won a lawsuit against the company that over looked Saint Laurent. The Kering Company also owns Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga and Gucci, among other high-end labels. They are now forced to pay Slimane $13 million over a contract dispute. Hedi insisted that his former employer broke his contract by not applying the non-compete clause that was in his contract when he left the company back in April.
