Marc Jacobs Switching To Dior?

Even since John Galliano was dethroned from his position of Christian Dior‘s Creative Director for his antisemitic rant last year, the fashion world has been abuzz on who will replaced the disgraced visionary.

Stirring up rumors, Women’s Wear Daily is reporting that none other than Marc Jacobs has allegedly been in talks with Dior. The move would mean he would leave his position at the very lucrative Louis Vuitton open for its next in line, Phoebe Philo, head of the brand Celine and credited as its reinventor. Philo has previously designed for Chloe, working first under Stella McCartney. Both parties have declined making an official statement.

Apparently, this isn’t a new idea. Jacobs had been considered for a Dior position as far back as in the ’90s, but was passed over in favor for Galliano, who took the brand to new heights. Instead, Jacobs launched his own menswear line and started gaining publicity. In 1997, he became Louis Vuitton’s creative director and later launched his own lines, like Marc by Marc Jacobs and Little Marc.

Can Marc Jacobs’ quirkiness blend into Dior’s sexy and whimsical aesthetic? Miss A fashionistas, tells us what you think!
