Is Christopher Kane going to Balenciaga?
This weekend has been rife with gossip of the juciest kind in the fashion world. Rumors are spreading that innovative and forward thinking designer, Christopher Kane, is heading in the direction of Spanish design house, Balenciaga. It's not the first time that the designer, who is best known for his own line but also teams up with Donatella Versace on Versus, has been suspected of a big-news move, remember back in February when everyone thought he was going to Dior?
Earlier this month, Nicolas Ghesquière announced his departure from Balenciaga which is effective from 30th November which WWD reported as a "joint decision to end their working relationship", so they've got a few weeks to find a replacement. Having been at the brand since 1997, they're big shoes to fill. Whilst nothing is yet to be confirmed, talks suggest that the likely replacement will be Christopher Kane. What do you think? Would this be a good move?
Opposing rumors suggest that Alexander Wang is still in the running. Keeping up? Officials at Balanciaga, Christopher Kane and Versus are insisting that a decision is still yet to be made. Truth be told, no one really knows anything for definite, but we'll be sure to keep you up to date once those in the know have made up their minds. Keep tuned!
