Fashion week may be over but everyone is still talking about the Marc Jacobs alleged move to Dior from Louis Vuitton. Back in September Anna Dello Russo, Hamish Bowles and Mickey Boardman were three big names who came forward and publicly supported Jacobs as the brand's new creative director and according to Vogue UK, Jacobs has the support of another big editor.
Yesterday at her book signing in London's Dover Street Market, Carine Roitfeld spoke highly of the American designer and supported the reported move. “He understands the company, how it works and how to work with them. He’s been given the shoulders to do the Dior job already. He’s never done couture though, so I’d be really excited to see him do couture for Dior," she told Vogue UK. "He’s a very smart person. If Marc gets the job, I won’t miss a single show.”
