His name was among those who sounded harder to replace John Galliano at the head of Dior. But it was not until today when it confirmed the news. Raf Simons , until recently the creative director of Jil Sander, is made with the reins of the house Dior , because, remember, had been vacant for over a year .
Next Wednesday is the day chosen to do the French house officer and the Belgian designer will debut as creative director of Dior in the month of July during the week of haute couture in Paris . Who's afraid?
True, at first, the minimalism of Raf Simons and the baroque that Dior has always characterized not seem to have much in common, but I have wanted to see what Raf is removed from the sleeve.
