The other day I read in WWD that Marc Jacobs is in negotiations to take over the Dior job.
My first reaction was – oh, that’s crazy.Â That’ll never happen.Â Why would he leave Louis Vuitton – where he built the entire clothing image of the brand – to go to Dior?
Something I hadn’t thought about, though, is the couture element that Dior offers.Â I have no clue what his dreams are, but to offer that to someone who is as much of a design artist as he is… the idea is fascinating, and must be at play here. Â I personally would love to see him have a team like that at his disposal.Â What a kick in the ass that would give the entire couture season!
So what do you think?Â Marc Jacobs to Dior?Â And if not – who else?
