Raf for Dior?

Raf Simons

Everyone from WWD to Grazia is reporting that Raf Simons is in talks with Dior. This seems odd. So many people have been reported to have been in talks with the company after Galliano got the boot. We’ve heard everyone from Ackermann, Tisci, to Elbaz, and of course, Marc Jacobs. This new pairing just doesn’t seem to fit. Don’t get me wrong, Raf’s designs are wonderful, but he’s first and foremost a menswear designer, and his work at Jil Sander doesn’t seem to mesh well with the Dior crowd, perhaps. Maybe we’re all used to John Galliano’s drama and excessive exuberance. I know Galliano’s designs have been said to be overdone and getting a little been there, done that, so why is it so hard to find a replacement?
