Fashion CanadaPosted: August 22, 2011
Chèr M. Arnault,
You strike me as a rational person, yet a story I read today in WWD (sorry, no link as they are stingy with their internet presence) regarding the rumors involving Marc Jacobs and the House of Dior leave me wondering if I have given you too much in the doubt-benefit department. You can’t possibly be seriously thinking of handing the label over to Captain Lucky.
I believe that someone switched your morning Wheaties for a pot cookie. It’s really the only explanation I can come up with.
If I could think of the equivalent of saying that I was moving to Canada when whichever Presidential candidate I was backing lost in a landslide, then that is exactly what I will do if you let Marc Jacobs take over Dior.
Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the concept of talent? Allow me to reassure you that Mr. Jacobs possesses none. Mr. Galliano, flawed human though he may be, is a genius worthy of designing for the house of Dior. Mr. Jacobs will send me and many others with eyeballs to fashion Canada, which, come to think of it, is probably located in Canada.
So, please, I beg you. Do not hire Marc Jacobs to ruin Dior. Because you know that’s what he’ll do. He will bring in the frump and if Dior is about anything, it does not rhyme with Donald Trump.
Thanks and have a great rest of your summer.
