When I heard the rumours that Marc Jacobs is set for Dior, I didn't take them seriously but after Anna Dello Russo confirmed the reports to Fashionista this week, it looks like their might weight to the speculation after all. Whether true or not, Jacobs definitely has support from the industry if he were ever to decide to jump ship to the brand.
“I love it," Mickey Boardman told The Cut of the rumours at the Cynthia Rowley show. "I heard that rumor that Marc was going there, and that Phoebe Philo was going to do Celine and Louis Vuitton, and I think that would be amazing ... originally I thought I'd hate for him to leave Louis Vuitton because he's done such a genius job there, but then Hal Rubenstein mentioned to me it would be amazing for Marc to do couture...I totally support Marc Jacobs for Dior. Tell Mr. Arnault that I say that.." And Hamish Bowles was complimentary of the alleged move too. "I think that [Jacobs's] work is so referential in an exciting way, he can take a reference and do something intriguing with it, so it would be exciting to see him unleashed on such an astonishing archive as that house," he said.
