You’ve heard it – rumors are flying de droite a gauche and back about LVMH wanting to renew Marc Jacobs only for Dior, not Louis Vuitton anymore. Words about various designers being targeted for Christian Dior’s design crown only ended up in smoke as Marc Jacobs is the most serious candidate for the job.
And not necessarily because he would have wanted it to (or maybe he did?), but because Bernard Arnault desperately needs someone to take over the design bureau so unexpectedly vacant following the unwanted, uncalled for drunk offensive declarations made by John Galliano. In the same time, negotiations are being conducted to bring Phoebe Philo (from Celine) to Louis Vuitton, to take over from Marc Jacobs, in case they will convince him to do Dior. Do you think he suits the Dior aesthetics? Will he accept the job?
