This could be nothing more than fashion gossip

Dear Shaded Viewers,

This is definitely neither  confirmed nor a fact ….but strong echos have it that this could very well be the final Dior Homme collection designed by Hedi Slimane.  This rumor has been circulating ever since Galliano presented his signature men’s wear collection and obviously it was a bit premature. The fashion buzz has it that  YSL has offered Hedi Slimane creative control of both the men’s and women’s collections. Underscore – this is still a rumor. If it turns out to be valid, confirmation no doubt will appear first in Suzie Menkes’ column  in the IHT.

Meanwhile everyone is looking forward to the Dior Homme show today.
