Grazia is hearing Gareth Pugh will replace Kris Van Assche as head designer of Dior Homme. LVMH hasn't confirmed the report, but an announcement is expected any day, according to chatter at London Fashion Week. Speculation that Pugh might take the reins from Van Assche reached a fever pitch when LVMH chief Bernard Arnault's daughter Delphine Arnault sat front-row at his very first menswear show at Paris Men's Fashion week and called the collection "beautiful" and "amazing." Critics, too, called it flawless. This is exciting news in the world of menswear. Van Assche never quite lived up to Hedi Slimane, who left Dior Homme almost two years ago. If anyone can reinvigorate a label, it's Pugh, and we can't wait to see more from him.
