Raf Simmons Heading To Dior. Not.

  • Pin it

According to Anna dello Russo who is a well respected fashionista (and, hopefully, fashion professionals take her seriously enough as to disclose inside information to her), Raf Simmons is not headed to Dior. That was on everyone’s mind when the news about Raf stepping down from the creative helmet of Jil Sander, a position he had occupied for seven seasons. Which is like forever in fashion years!

Jil Sander will reprise her label’s creative responsibility, it would appear, while Raf would allegedly release his own fashion brand. Again, these are just rumors; if fashion would only be judged through Anna dello Russo’s eyes, we would all be dancing around in towering high heels, locked up in some golden fashion cages!

Yesterday’s rumor was it should be Christopher Kane. Today he says it’s not true either.

I don’t believe the so called fashionistas know much more than us nowadays. They may know about the small talks which invariably will come to our ears a few hours later. But about the big decisions they are as ignorant as us.
Suzy Menkes have been “shooting in the dark” for months now. Yesterday ,as Riana pointed out,was C Kane.
I think Simons will take over YSL, and Pillati goes to Dior.
