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
I still hope its all a publicity stunt.
I really don’t care anymore. I can’t keep up with all these ever changing head designers of the “House of Whoever”. It’s not the same thing anyway…I cherish my Christian Dior or Yves Saint Laurent books -as best known examples- even more. I own a lot of fashion books.
Marc has done some great stuff. He deserves a place in fashion history of course. But he ain’t Dior. He has not that Dior feel. I don’t feel it.
youre totally right. Even insiders are very sceptical on his choice.. With so many highly talented names in the industry , it seems a bit odd.
I vote for Lacroix, Pillati or Alexis Mabille.
mdinah, I wrote it before here somewhere: I think Bernard Arnault has more interest in sales numbers than in beauty and creativity!!
