Interesting Dior Homme rumor... - Page 3

post #31 of 48
Have you seen Thom Browne's Spring 2007 line? It's like dollhouse meets daguerreotype

I like that he's trying to be creative... but really. What is the veil for? If it is to keep away mosquitos, then why wear shorts with all that exposed leg? If it is for chastity sake, I ask the same question.

Yes we have, tie collector. And it's been discussed in another thread.

That looks like a bad scene out of Serpico.

Looking at that website, pardon me if I say I'm skeptical as to the truth of this rumor. The menswear and womenswear listed on that site are absolutely garish and the design aesthetics between that site's content and Dior are nothing alike. Might this simply be a shameless plug of one's own designs (i.e. our two new Bulgarian posters just happen to be Gergana and Maria Sapundjievi themselves)?


My dear, this is not a rumor but the truth itself. I know it from a person from Dior. And forgive me, but the twins don't need to make such an advertisement of their work this way. A lot of people already know them. That's why you should be glad that I informed you now because the official statement will appear in the end of the year. By the way I am not a Bulgarian.

Actually, you're dead wrong. The new designer will be Keyser Soze. He's even better known and even more elusive.

If the twins are famous enough that they don't need to make such an advertisement, then they do need to hire the services of a decent web designer to help them with their site. I think my six year old cousin could have done a better layout.

Also, I think you and "chanela" (both first time posters) are the same person. That strange diction and annoying over-use of exclamation points in the original posts seems suspect (geesh, I'm surly today).

Anyway, I'll believe this Dior thing when I see it on WWD. I'm all for fresh blood at Dior (God knows it's needed), but everything about this seems fishy.

Heh, so you saw the last DH show yesterday? Probably yes... I was there too and I shaked my hand with the rumoured sisters. Beautiful girls a little bit vain and silent but ok for DH. Sidney Toledano talked to them after the show and I saw they are in very good relations. Well i think there is a descision and it will be announced any minute.

...you're still on about this? Persistent as this thread has been buried for months.

Okay, I'll get out my hat, in preparation to eat it if you're right. We'll see, though.

Well, I hope your hat is delicious!

Have you posted this golden nugget over on www.thefashionspot.com or at www.stylezeitgeist.com? I'm sure they'd be much more interested in knowing this. As well, it could generate a better discussion, since there are many industry insiders on those sites.

I feel like Van Assche would be a smoother transition for DH. I've been a fan of the KVA line for it being simultaneously flat and animated. Kind of like the older Raf Simons stuff, and similar to Hedi's Follow Me line (I think, maybe it was Red that I'm thinking of)

Thom Browne doesn't fit the current Dior Homme aesthetic at all. That's really all I can say on that possibility.

Artisan Fan, Dior Homme's suits were, up until maybe Strip, very good quality and well-tailored. The shoulder cut was well done and very unique. Thom Browne's clothing is, and always has been very well made as well.

Agreed. This makes much more sense to me, especially since Assche worked with Hedi on some of those early collections.

The official word is a denial, but I'm hearing Dior Homme has quietly offered the top job to New York men's wear designer Thom Browne.

Browne is known for his classic tailoring and '50s American sensibility.

"Dior asked Thom Browne to take over from Hedi Slimane, but he hasn't decided yet," says a snitch.

A rep for Dior said only that he had "no information" about the rumor.

Despite a "not true" from Browne's rep, the leak comes from within his own organization.

I'm still crossing my fingers Helmut Lang will take over the show. I can't believe he's done nothing for two years already..
