Is Hedi Slimane Leaving for Dior or Chanel?
The rumour mill keeps running
The rumour mill kept running during couture shows in Paris and above all, the most talked about was the possible departure of Hedi Slimane from Saint Laurent. The designer had successfully turned Saint Laurent into a new direction, which also resulted in significant growth in revenues. So, it would be not wise to leave something he has built successfully, only if it is not for something bigger.
With women’s shows just around the corner, Dior and Lanvin are expected to announce something big and we know that Slimane has a good past at Dior Homme. On the other hand, Karl Lagerfeld is not really young anymore, so it is legit that he might be looking for the right successor for Chanel. And who would be better of than Slimane who is highly respected by Karl himself? Hopefully, we will figure out everything soon.
