    It’s getting ridiculous at this point...
    Who’s next? Jean Desses? Grès? Robert Piguet?
    Considering the success of niche fragrances, the return of Jean Patou as an exclusive perfume brand with a big return for Joy could be good....

    But unfortunately, I can already smell another full relaunch with RTW and all. They should try to make Dior great again before polluting the industry with another brand revival...

    Wait, this can't be a coincidence, no?

    ^I thought the same thing when I was reading about it in the September issues and none of the fragrance blogs I followed had said anything yet.

    Alber for Dior yes, not for Patou. I don’t see him having to go through the process of starting everything from scratch like at Lanvin.

    Guillaume Henry for Patou?
    Patou is not a name that resonate to people so I expect something totally fresh and new.

    I loved his work for Carven but he failed at Ricci.

    Wow, I would never expect Henry at Patou and to be honest I don't expect some great things from him anymore, I mean his Nina Ricci was pretty bad so... but we'll see.

    Well my dear Lola, it is better to have scratch as a start than have the heavy archives of Raf and MGC at Dior :innocent:. Patou was a fabulous designer that could work with Elbaz's aesthetic.

    "His Nina Ricci designs, while not critically lauded, found fans in celebrities from Beyoncé to Gigi Hadid."

    This made me laugh so hard.

    Fair enough but it could be also very close to Lanvin.
    At this point, Dior should start from scratch with Alber-_--_-
    And he should bring Elie Top back!

    Lol they must have worked overtime to find at least a semblance of compliment for his tenure at Nina Ricci :lol:.

    Right?! And "found fans" in Gigi and Beyoncé, like they weren't gifted the things they wore. :lol:

    I actually liked Henry's tenure at Ricci, but yes, agreed, the celebrity fan thing (particularly the mega stars they named) is a stttttttretch.

    I didn't realize he left in March until I was searching for the Nina Ricci show and realized they didn't do one.
