LVMH Might Be Eyeing Marc Jacobs For Dior

marc-jacobs-rumored-to-take-over-john-galliano-position-dior.jpg

It's been a minute since we've heard any buzz about John Galliano's successor at Christian Dior, that is until now.

The rumor du jour is LVMH boss Bernard Arnault wants Marc Jacobs to take over the gig because his image would be good for the fashion house.

So what does that mean for Louis Vuitton?

Since MJ has already renewed his creative director contract he could do both, but according to sources he'll most likely have to choose one or the other.

After nearly 15 years at Louis V, maybe a change would be good for Marc.

What do U think???

Over priced fashion house Balmain is thisclose to announcing who will take over as the creative director now that Christophe Decarnin went crazy is out.

Rumor has it, at least Aaccording to industry insiders, the French luxury label is finalizing a contract with Olivier Rousteing.

And now for the collective "who!?".

Rousteing was to Decarnin as Sarah Burton was to Alexander McQueen; so it makes sense.

Balmain's expected to make the not-so-surprising announcement as early as this week.

Simon Doonan Replaced At Barneys

Ouch.

Simon Doonan has been given the Andre Leon Talley treatment and stripped of his creative director title at Barneys New York.

From now on, Simon will be referred to as the "Creative Ambassador-at-Large", while Dennis Freedman assumes the 25 year veteran's role.

The department store insists the new title is a promotion, but others beg to differ.

As one source puts it "Simon has been the face of Barneys for a long time, and you could say that face just got a slap", while another adds "Nobody gets promoted to anything with 'at-large' in the title".

Simon seems to be taking the change the best he can, but hasn't been "acting himself" and seems "sad about the whole business".

Can't say we blame him.

The Gucci Group has announced that Sarah Burton will take over the creative director position at Alexander McQueen.

Burton was the head of design of that label's women's wear since 2000 and was responsible for finishing Lee's final collection.

President and CEO of Alexander McQueen, Jonathan Akeroyd, said upon the announcement: "Having worked alongside Lee McQueen for more than 14 years, [Sarah] has a deep understanding of his vision, which will allow the company to stay true to its core values."

Sarah added "The creation of modern, beautifully crafted clothes was at the heart of Lee’s vision. I intend to stay true to his legacy.”

Sounds like she really is the best choice.

Congrats, Sarah! We can't wait to see your work!
