Paris kicks offs to scandal, gossip

Raf Simons to replace Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent

The gossip: In her review of Simons’ stellar Jil Sander show, the International Herald Tribune’s Suzy Menkes hinted that Raf may eventually take over Yves Saint Laurent at some point in time. Jessica Michault, her colleague, reported that news as fact on Twitter, causing many to believe that the change would be happening immediately.

The truth: No, Stefano Pilati is not going anywhere anytime soon. But Suzy Menkes’s article does suggest that Raf Simons could possibly take over one day. When that day will come (next year, or next decade), no one knows. But it sucks for Pilati to have another round of rumors about his job security circulate right before his show.

Marc Jacobs to take over Christian Dior

The gossip: Women’s Wear Daily reported that he and partner Robert Duffy have been haggling with the storied fashion house over salary. And we can’t blame him. His work load will jump majorly when he has to add bi-annual couture collections to his to-do list.

The truth: Only Marc and the parties involved in the negotiations know for sure.

Kanye West to show in Paris

The gossip: After several months of will-he-or-won’t-he rumors, Kanye West will definitely show his first women’s wear collection in Paris. Australian editor Christine Centenera is said to be consulting him, while the major fashion PR firm Karla Otto is handling the press. Word on the street is that he’ll take the Tom Ford approach by making his runway show painfully small and exclusive. We also hear he won’t be allowing anyone to take photos.

The truth: Karla Otto is definitely handling his PR and Christine Centenera is definitely consulting. Unfortunately for you guys, it sounds like the super small exclusive part is true too (we guess this one won’t be live streamed.)
