You know the word on the fashstreet is that Marc Jacobs is packing his Louis Vuitton cases and heading up to Dior. The house of Christian Dior, leaved without head designer after the Galliano scandal, was courting various designers for a while.
LVMH has decided to look in their own backyard and offer the position to the overwhelmingly successful Marc Jacobs. Whether he accepted or not, it is yet to be officially confirmed. However, a valuable hint that the Dior job is on the way is the LVMH organized retrospective exhibition to honor Marc Jacobs, the Louis Vuitton artistic director of 14 years. I wonder if he plans a Beyonce – like move – at the end of his LV NY Fashion show he takes the catwalk, dramatically drops a LV bag and then rubs his Lady Dior purse… hmmm
