Pugh for Dior Homme perhaps?

Could it be my slightly derisive judgement of Gareth Pugh’s menswear debut was not shared by the fashion heavyweights? Perchance. LVMH heiress Delphine Arnault took much interest in Pugh’s first offering by sitting front-row, and LVMH – it has been reported – is sponsoring the creation of Pugh’s intergalactic garments. This has given rise to the rumour that Pugh is either in discussion with LVMH regarding consulting work for Dior Homme or the taking-over of the veritably talented Kris Van Assche’s position altogether. Interestingly Kaiser Karl has committed a henious act which has considerably lessened my good deal of respect for him, by “advancing Pugh’s candidacy for Dior Homme”. For shame.
