You may not discuss his dismissal or the reasons for it ... that topic and all of your opinions about the incident have been covered extensively in a thread that has been closed. It's over ... let's not get into more arguments that none of you can win.

Which would mean going back to the uninspired parades of washed out New Look rehashing due to constantly being under your CEO's pressure. Do we really want this? Looking at Dior collections since 2008, I don't.

Lacroix as Dior designer?
That's music for my ears, the best thing I have heard today...

i'll probably sound crazy now, but if they're looking for someone 'less prestigious' (eg: someone to pay less) why not antonio berardi? he's been galliano's assistant and his latest collection was heavenly. at least makes more sense than alexander wang. wtf.

***Edited***
Galliano hasn't made any inspiring collections for quite some time now. Actually, looking back at the archives, I think he is often overrated. Too many instances of ugly clothing interspersed with some flashes of brilliance.

They really need to get away from the drag-queen aesthetic and the overabundance of historical reference. They need someone to restart things.

^^ I think Gaytten last collection (Haute Couture) for Dior was so Drag-queen inspired. As you say.

Lacroix for Dior is my absolute dream but unfortunately it seems to be very unlikely,
maybe if they hire two designers, i'm thinking in Lacroix for Couture and a promising young designer for RTW.. is it realistic?

You guys are weird. On one hand you don't want small designer, such as Berardi (just mentionned) and on the other hand you don't want a star such as Alex Wang. Don't get me wrong I absolutely hate the idea of Wang at Dior, but friends make up your mind!

Arnault will never appoint Lacroix. Christian is an artist, it would be impossible to control him. One of my friend used to work for him at his eponymous house and he was already a nightmare, can you imagine him being told what direction to take commercially? Plus he doesn't sell. Sure his garment are gorgeous but it's couture, it doesn't make money.

But the idea of a duo with an experienced designer and a young one seems like a good one.

Unfortunately I think they are going to keep Gayten.

^ i don't think it has anything to do with star power or lack of. The Alex Wang aesthetic isn't something that can translate into Dior. Can you honestly point to a dress on a celebrity and say "that looks like it's an Alex Wang"? At least with Galliano you were able to ponder that since there was so many recognizable cues - the bias cuts, the asymmetrical rufflings/pinnings, the sharp tailoring, etc.

I would hate to be the one in charge of this decision because all it takes is one wrong direction and then it's time to appoint another head designer. and if that happens often enough, Dior becomes the next Ungaro.

^ Agreed. He's the perfect balance of couture-theatrics and sensible ready-to-wear. It'd be kinda rough for the first few years, but if Dior nurtures his aesthetic , who knows what amazing things Olivier bring to Dior

It seems like the perfect choice for me too. But I doubt the Theory's executive will be okay with that.

I agree, Theyskens sounds like the perfect choice for Dior. I'm sure he would do absolute magic being there.
