Former Dior frontrunner Raf Simons has exited Jil Sander and is moving away from Milan, but it also doesn’t sound like he’s heading to Paris — at least to helm Dior, anyway.

The French house still hasn’t made a peep as far as any future creative director, perhaps in part because it’s enjoying strong business momentum under the leadership of interim director — and former Galliano collaborator — Bill Gaytten. In fact, WWD reports: “Sources said Dior is mulling continuing with a team approach, possibly adding some young, up-and-coming talents.”

Could one such young, up-and-coming talent under consideration be Christopher Kane? Possibly, according to Suzy Menkes. She writes: “What if — as the rumor mill claims — Mr. Kane has been put up for the Dior job?”
