CASTELBAJAC RULING DELAYED: A French court ruling on the fate of designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s eponymous label, initially expected in July, has been delayed until September, a source close to the matter said. The Commercial Court is due to meet Sept. 6 to examine proposals to purchase the brand, which has entered into receivership, and will likely rule on the matter later that month. One of the bidders, Florida-based Falic Group, which owns Christian Lacroix, has dropped out of the running, the source said. The remaining two bidders are Dominique Bergin, president of bicycle maker Look Cycle, and South Korean sportswear designer and retailer EXR Korea Co. Officials at Castelbajac declined to comment.
