The fashion press has now begun to speculate that outgoing designer of the label, Antonio Marras, now simply must be in the running for the Christian Dior job, which, Dior’s recent couture show reminded the world, remains painfully vacant. But while the rumor-mongers gossip, changes are afoot at Kenzo, which Marras has designed since 2004. His last collection for the house walked at Men’s Paris Fashion Week in June, meaning Leon and Lim’s first line for the house will walk at Paris Fashion Week in October.
