Marc Jacobs Reportedly Not Headed to Dior


The never-ending quest to replace John Galliano at Dior rages on.

We know, we know: when in the world is this whole Dior debacle going to be fixed, already? Looks like the folks in charge at the French label sure don't seem to feel any pressure to pick a successor to former creative director John Galliano since histermination earlier this year due to the much-publicized quarrel that included anti-semetic remarks. Ever since entire fashion industry has pondered who will take over the legendary design house and virtually every name imaginable--from practical to preposterous--has been rumored. The most recent whisperings were that Marc Jacobs was in serious talks to take the reigns and after his lovely show for the label Louis Vuitton--incidentally, a brand owned by LVMH, whom also own Dior--speculation has done nothing but intensify. But now sources are saying that it ain't happenin', folks. WWDreports that Jacobs is out of the running, hinting that the reason may be that he wanted to bring his entire team from Vuitton along with him to the new job. Now, designers Alexander Wang (who was supposedly already in the running at one point), Raf Simons, and Jason Wu are among the new list of candidates--but this mess has been dragging on for nearly a year, with no clear resolution in sight, so we're taking any news with a grain of salt. At this point, we say don't believe a thing you hear until the ink is dry on those contracts.
