An odd email from France: "My mate is Hedi's assistant, or used to be. Dior were keen to resign his contract, but they wouldn't give it up the way Mr. Slimane wanted. so he walked. His contract was up a year ago. The main team will remain, but the 2 boys who are like his personal assistants have been told that Kris is uncomfortable with their presence, given their affiliation. They've been given a week's 'vacation' whilst they work out the details. So, it's all quel scandale on rue francois 1er." We hope those boys are quietly packing up armfuls of samples from the last Hedi collection... Also: Those wondering what Hedi revealed at his "secret" bash this Saturday at Beatrice Inn can chew on this - it seems the most likely option at this point is an eponymous line with new business backers and, probably, some women's pieces. But we're still hoping for Calvin Klein.
