    He'd make a hell of a lot better candidate than the Caten twins, that's for sure. But I was always under the impression that he's keen to concentrate on his own label.

    I've always liked his work for Burberry Prorsum, though it's safe to say that it was as British as pepperoni :p . But that's an issue of incompatibility through no fault of his own. He has a strong recognizable aesthetic, and he might have been a big part of the reason why Jil Sander menswear was so well received since its very launch.

    Thanks Lena.
    Finally, the Dsquared rumours are gone and the fact that Grant has a chance at Givenchy. ^_^
    Let's see what happens.

    exactly my thoughts igni..

    as for the R.M. choice,cant say that i'm thrilled
    i find him a tiny bit bland to be honest.

    we will see,
    wishing him good luck in his new post :flower:

    He only launched his own collection for A/W 04/05

    And it was shocking - bland beyond belief

    Bad move if they get him for Celine, they need something a bit more exciting otherwise that brand will go nowhere

    Anyone got any news on Givenchy?

    I actually find his debut collection very well done. It was simple and beautifully tailored, but not as restrained as his work in Jil Sander (in a good way), and more refined than his Prorsum collections.

    And Celine isn't exactly about excitement anyway - they certainly wouldn't benefit in any way by hiring the Caten twins, after all that Kors has laid down for the brand.

    Lena, he helped launch Sander's men's line back in 1997 (or was it '96? can't remember...), and contined to work there until he was poached by Burberry.

    He is also such a obstinate artisan.
    I don't think he'd hit it off well with Celine (or Arnault).
    If he signs, it could be that Celine is not the same company Michael Kors used to know.

    i have to agree with runner, i dont think he's a good choice and i suspect he will have trouble communicating with the LVMH group..
    hard job for him since Celine is currently enjoying a 30% rise on sales

    here goes mr Menichetti

    While I think he would be a much better choice than those d2 morons,I'd have to agree with the latter postings. I'm not sure if this is a comfortable arrangement as powerful as LVMH. Burberry was an entirely different field because they expect traditions to be obligitory and Roberto is an artisan in the first right. LVMH,is much too demanding for marketable reasons with stagnant trends....and that's not his game.

    Well I'm very disapointed in this

    I actually think Mr Kors wasn't great, but this is a definite step down, his collections for Burberry were just weird, Italian minimalism (think how improved Burberry has become with Christopher Bailey at the helm) and I can't see it working for Celine

    As for his own collection - whats the point? J Crew or Club Monaco have more directional product

    I don't know why they didn't give a younger designer a chance to do a witty, chic take on Celine, someone like Proenza Scholoer, Sophia Kokosolaki or Luella Bartley (especially after seeing her Fall 04/05 collection) could have really given that house some life whilst keeping the essence of a chic preppy French house
