This morning WWD reported that Raf Simons is close to signing with Dior as their next couturier. I think it would really shake things up at Dior, having someone as innovative as Raf at its helm. Â I was reminded of this young lady (above) that I shot outside Chanel, and the interesting way she mixed Comme Des GarĂ§ons, Hermes, and Chanel into one look. Â It really made me think about how cool it would be if Rei Kawakubo took over for Karl Lagerfeld when he leaves Chanel- talk about a fascinating combination.
It’s always fun to think about who you would want to see where; Raf at Dior, Rei at Chanel, Dries at Hermes…these are just a few of my dream combos. Â But, let’s focus: Who do you see at Armani when he steps down? What about Chanel, or Ferre? Who’s going to revive the houses of Ungaro or Cardin? Better yet, what about Margiela?!
