Rumor Mill: Marc Jacobs Could Be Taking Over Dior?

Could Marc Jacobs be the next creative head for Dior?

The great thing about rumors are, they allow you a head start to fantasize on how life would be if they were actually true. Take today’s buzz-worthy bite: the Brazilian website Glamurama allegedly has spoken to sources close to Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH, who is claiming that Marc Jacobs has already been picked as John Galliano’s replacement at Dior.

So, can you imagine a Marc Jacobs-run Dior? How would it change? Stay the same? Jacobs is indeed a visionary with a prowess that could rival Galliano’s, yet Jacobs already helms Louis Vuitton and his own two eponymous labels. Would this be the beginning of a design monopoly? The Arnault sources reportedly say probably not because if this were to come to pass, Jacobs may choose which one of the LVMH labels he would want to head.

“The two have met often in recent weeks to discuss the matter,” the website states. “Jacobs, the current creative director of Louis Vuitton, renewed his contract with LVMH in January – and it is possible for him to continue in his current position even if he takes over Dior. More likely, however, is that he’ll end up choosing between one of two. Arnault would prefer him to go to Dior – as the billionaire sees it; Jacobs’ image will only be good for the fashion house, which was considerably shaken by the Galliano scandal.”
