Suzy Menkes floated a rumor yesterday that Christopher Kane "has been put up for the Dior job" to replace John Galliano. Today, the designer tells British Vogue that's not the case: "While it is incredibly flattering that I could be considered for a role at a house such as Dior at this stage in my career, I can confirm that I have not been approached."  Kane says he remains focused on developing his line, and his work for Versace's Versus label. So it's back to guessing Raf Simons, or Stefano Pilati, or maybe Hedi Slimane, and so on.
