The fashion world is abuzz about the possibility that U.S.-born designer Marc Jacobs might take over as creative director of Dior.
Could it possibly be a simple coincidence, wondered fashion insiders looking for clues that might confirm rumors McQueen designer Sarah Burton has been chosen to design Kate Middleton's top secret royal wedding dress, that the label's fall-winter 2011-12 show began with an all-white look?
Every chapter of Dana Thomas' meticulously researched and elegantly written "Deluxe: How Luxury Lost its Luster" is headed with an epigraph that addresses some aspect of the human fascination and fixation with the fine, the gorgeous, the unattainable.
"This is about the safest move LVMH can do," Ms. Thomas said in an email to the Associated Press. "Everyone loves Marc. He's boundlessly creative. He knows how to assemble and managed an excellent team. And he is resolutely modern."
"Having worked with Marc for so long [at Vuitton], LVMH knows what they are getting at Dior. No surprises, no drama," Ms. Thomas said.
