The storied French fashion house has been leaderless since the rant-assisted departure of John Galliano in March. Now, inside sources suggest that LVMH head Bernard Arnault may fill the top spot at Dior by shuffling designers from elsewhere within his stable of brands.
Jacobs would move to Dior from Louis Vuitton, where he would likely be replaced by Celine designer Phoebe Philo. It is believed that Philo would continue designing for Celinea prospect that has the minimalist designer intrigued. Jacobs, for his part, is said to be excited about the possibility of a Dior move.
