Raf Simons To Fill Spot At Dior?
December 13, 2011 § 2 Comments
There have been endless talks about who will take John Galliano’s place at luxury house Christian Dior, from Marc Jacobs to Alexander Wang and Ricardo Tisci. But little did we know that Dior was looking into Jil Sander’s Raf Simons as a potential candidate!
Nothing is set in stone as of now, but according to WWD the house and Simons are close to a deal. Raf Simons still has a four-year with Jil Sander, which could be hindering the process of this deal. Since the couture shows in January and the ready-to-wear shows in March are fast approaching, Simons won’t have enough time to adjust to the house. We will have wait a few more months to see when this deal will be official.
Raf Simons is known for his modern, simplistic and tailored technique while Dior is all about the glamour. Will this pairing match up in the end? Only time will tell. In the meantime I’m keeping my eyes peeled so see what else Dior has up their sleeves.
Do you think Raf Simons is a good choice for Dior?
