What. The. Hell?

What the Sam Hell is going on here? How do you replace Hedi Freaking Slimane?

Hedi Slimane is set to leave Dior after power struggles over his trademark. This comes as a bit of a shock, especially after the success of his Pete Doherty-inspired Dior Homme collections. Slimane will be replaced by Belgian designer Kris Van Assche who worked at Dior before launching his own label in 2005. Slimane was in talks with Dior about launching his own label but these talks collapsed after Slimane refused to hand over control of his name to Dior.

Kris Van Assche is sort of like Kiss My Ass, isn't it?

Whoah that's bad for Dior but good for him for sticking up for his name. I wouldn't give that up either.

I don't understand what the corporation that owns Dior is thinking. Slimane is about as cool as it gets- it would be worth it to just make him happy.

Dior Homme isn't going to have the cachet that it currently has with out Hedi.

And I'm not just saying that because he took the picture that I have posted on the cooler at work. You know, the one with Carlos and his visible Libertine tattoo. God.
