We are taking this latest news with the largest grain of salt one could ever possibly find, but according to mumblings overheard at Miu Miu today, Marc Jacobs may in fact be heading to Dior.
Vogue UK reports:
Updated Wednesday March 7, 1.12pm: Whispers on the Miu Miu front row this afternoon (where Marc Jacobs tapped his feet as he watched the show), suggest that – after all the back-and-forth – Jacobs is set to be announced as the Christian Dior creative director this afternoon.
If this is true — and honestly, we highly doubt it — it would be the biggest twist in what has been an almost year-long saga. In January, Jacobs told the Telegraph that he was very happy at Louis Vuitton and that he felt he had “so much more to do” at the company.
That said, if we may be so indulgent, Jacobs’ train-themed show this morning would indeed make for an all too apt parting metaphor. Just saying.
