After slamming bloggers and Twitter for spreading one of her speculations (that YSL was talking to Raf Simons), two days ago the IHT’s Suzy Menkes put forth another speculation, this time about Christopher Kane maybe going to Dior. Well, Vogue UK asked the up-and-coming design star about it, and here’s what he had to say:
“While it is incredibly flattering that I could be considered for a role at a house such as Dior at this stage in my career, I can confirm that I have not been approached. I am focused on developing my own label and my ongoing collaboration with Donatella Versace for Versus.”
Which seems like a really good idea on his part, because both of those things are having a lot of critical success. And so now we’re back to waiting for the next Dior/YSL/Raf Simons/Galliano rumor to come our way. A rather sleepy fashion month has suddenly perked up quite a bit this week.
