Speaking to British Vogue, Valentino Garavani expressed some concern over the recent rumors about Raf Simons heading to Dior: "I'm not sure —  it's an amazing job, I don't know if he would be the right person for it," he said. "John Galliano is difficult to replace. I think it's important not to jump into things. It needs to be a logical continuation of the brand. But who am I to say anything? I guess we all just have to wait and see."
