Rumor has it that the 43 year-old Belgian designer, Raf Simons, is currently inking out a deal with Christian Dior to be its head designer. If his name rings a bell, it's because he is currently the creative director at Jil Sander. He also designs for his eponymous line Raf Simons. This wasn't the first time Raf's name was thrown around the rumor mill either. He was rumored to be Stefano Pilati's successor's at Yves Saint Laurent before YSL shot that down. The original rumor was for Marc Jacobs or Riccardo Tisci to take over at Dior, but with contract negotiations in the works at Dior, it looks like Raf may be next up to take a seat in the high-fashion house's throne.
