According to New York Times writer Cathy Horyn, the fashion house will bring the months of speculation to an end this week by announcing Raf Simons as their new creative director.
The former Jil Sander designer confirmed the news on Monday in an interview, saying the position "feels right", but it will be a challenge.
"…For me the strongest impact is the first 10 years of Dior and how to link that to the 21st century. Mr. Dior was very innovative during a short time span. And it was in the middle of the 20th century, a period I am very interested in, whether it’s linked to fashion, architecture or art. So I find it very challenging to rethink couture."
It'll be inneresting to see how Raf takes on couture this July and what he has in store for Dior, BUT we gotta ask…
