For months rumors are coming up on who will take over the prestigious open creative director seat over at Dior, after the unfortunate departure of Galliano. Now Raf Simons seems to be the candidate of choice. According to Vogue, the brand and the designer are just finalizing the contract. It will be interesting to see what will happen with Jil Sander, where he is creative director at the moment. Also the minimalist aesthetic of Raf Simons is quite far away from the Dior look. Who knows what changes the designer might bring to the historic fashion house. Hopefully we know more in the coming weeks.
