Ready for it? Ghesquière attended a private dinner organized by the LVMH-owned house of Dior, thus rubbing elbows with the luxury conglomerate said to be courting the former Balenciaga designer.
According to WWD, Dior chief Sidney Toledano, Delphine Arnault, Dior’s artistic director for costume jewelry Camille Miceli, and Azzedine Alaïa were all present. WWD‘s source described the atmosphere as that of a “family dinner.”
So does this mean Ghesquière is or will be a part of the LVMH family? Maybe he’s just become friendly with them over the years (he was said to have been heavily courted for the Dior job back in the day) or was somehow involved with the Tar magazine photoshoot that the dinner was celebrating. Or maybe he struck a deal with LVMH right then and there and is already fast at work on a new eponymous line.
Hopefully, we’ll get some solid information sooner than later, but we have a feeling this might be something that doesn’t get resolved until 2013.
