News from Paris...

I just received some news from a friend who is in Paris now...

1. Dior Homme pre-winter collection will be in stores next week!

2. Apparently, there will be no runway show for the Spring/Summer 07 collection. There will only be a presentation to the press.

3. Dior Homme Spring/Summer 08 collection is not designed by Kris Van Assche nor Hedi Slimane.

4. Dior Homme trademarks will stay even after KVA takes over...for example, the darts and bees.

Did you mean at #2 and #3 that there'll be no SS08 runway show and that it won't be designed by KVA?

Weird, cause KVA is now supposedly the man in charge and I can't see Dior have the collection designed by obscure unheard talents...

Yes, there will be no runway show for SS08. This is what the store manager at Ave Montaign told my friend.

Apparently, KVA doesn't have enough time to design the SS08 collection since he only took over Hedi recently.

Maybe SS08 is not designed by some obscure unheard talents but existing assistants of Hedi...I suppose Dior will be producing classic designs for SS08...
