The search for John Galliano’s replacement at Dior continues, and the latest candidate may be 27-year-old French designer Maxime Simoens. WWD reports that Dior has conducted talks with Simoens, although the designer denies he has had any contact with the French house.

Simoens, who has been creative director at French brand Leonard since last October, is expected to part ways with the brand shortly, perhaps freeing him up for Dior. Notably, the young designer also has a physical resemblance — the eyeglasses, the thin physique — to another former Dior designer, Yves Saint Laurent, who took over the house at 21.
