Raf Simons Rumored New Christian Dior Designer

Raf Simons May Be Dior's New Designer

<p>

>> With Marc Jacobs out of the picture, Raf Simons — who recently came under consideration, alongside Jason Wu and Alexander Wang — has emerged as frontrunner for the Dior job.

According to WWD's sources, Dior is closing in on a contract with 43-year-old Simons, although the deal has yet to be concluded. Among the details that still need to be worked out: a start date (Simons, who has been at Jil Sander since 2005, reportedly just recently extended his contract with that house for an unknown duration) and when his first Dior collection would debut (likely not for Spring 2012 couture in January nor Fall 2012 in March).

Dior CEO Sidney Toledano is currently traveling in Asia and was not immediately reachable for comment, and Simons did not return phone calls.
