unlikely. reed krakoff did for coach what tom ford did for gucci. and unlike gucci/ppr, coach gave him his own house as reward for his efforts. to walk away from coach would also mean he'd walk away from his eponymous house since coach paid for it lock, stock, and barrel.

I thought the fall collection was pretty good, but agreed with Phelps' review that it was "overkill" on the snakeskin. Must be tough to be teetering like Hannah. Wishing her success.

All right, one-season extension is still a hope she'll be out, then.

Well, let's not be that mean. She deserves a chance. Of course I'll wish her all the best but if it's as boring as last time she has to go. Chloe deserves something more fun, I think.

Being a creative director since S/S 09 is quite a chance already, non?

I'm actually a big fan of McKibbon's Chloe and I hope she stays for a good while longer than 1 season. I was in fact sorely dissapointed by Spring 11 on the runway but as I see it delivered in stores it is SUBLIME. The harshness was all in the styling, not the clothes. Had they styled the show like they did the campaign it would have been digested much more easily. Fall was a bit obvious but was in fact full of fresh ideas and fantastic clothes. So many naysayers on here but I can assure you we'll look back at Mckibbon's collections years from now and perhaps only in hindsight will they fully be appreciated. Mckibbon makes clothes you can LIVE in and is creating new ideas with that approach when most designers are only making them for show, her former boss included.

And I'm sorry, to not like her work for Chloe is one thing, to then suggest Reed Krakoff as a replacement totally invalidates your opinion.

Fact: I haven't vaguely liked a single collection Hannah MacGibbon has designed for Chloe.
I wouldn't be surprised if she was given an ultimatum after the company saw that disgusting patchwork poncho she sent out for fall.

Honestly though I am a fan of Phoebe , she is highly OVER RATED, save for her first collections , most of phoebe's collections look like Helmut Lang threw up on the runway. Lot of the stuff Hannah has put out , has been widely copied . Hannah is a shy awkward woman but she has great ideas and she puts out great pants. Hannah's collections are very Chloe , though she could refine her aesthetic , I would not count her out, she can rise to the occasion. I found Celine's latest collection , BORING , phoebe has yet to top her first collection for the house.

Guillaume Henry is doing good things at Carven. I think he would be a nice choice for Chloe.

As much as I dislike Hannah MacGibbon's runway collections, I have to say; what is actually available in stores is ten times more appealing than what is offered on the runway. A lot of it, at least what I have seen, is diffused and watered down from the runway. Also there is a lot of great, chic daywear that comes from inter-seasonal collections.

Perhaps she is not a strong designer, per se, in the line of Phoebe Philo or Paulo Melim Andersson, but her designs definitely speak to women. She has a great sense of commerce in that regard. I wonder if what she is doing is completely her own vision for the house? A lot of the runway collections seem very disorganized, almost as if a team of people were working on it and not one head honcho, so to speak.
