Rochas’s Marco Zanini Thinks He Could Design for Dior


When Cathy Horyn asked Zanini if he could helm Dior, he answered, "I think, yes," adding that his subtlety is something the label needs. "The way I work; if I told you, you’d be bored to tears. It’s not about me imposing my style on a brand. There are some people who impose their signature in a very overwhelming way and there are others who do it in a subtle way, like a little signature in a corner. Not speaking as a designer, I hope they’ll put someone at Dior who will not walk down path of a caricature, the over-the-top thing. It would be so refreshing to see a Dior that could look real. That’s what happened with Céline. Women fell in love with it. They saw something cool, elegant, smart. At Dior, let’s hope it’s not a predictable choice." [On the Runway/NYT]
