Marc Jacobs?? Christian Dior??

The idea of Marc Jacobs making a move to Dior just keeps getting more and more plausible. What better way for Louis Vuitton to send its fearless leader off than with a fancy retrospective?

LV is doing just that, though they aren’t packaging it as a sendoff. The brand is opening up an expanded store in Italy during Milan Fashion Week, and exhibiting a retrospective of Jacobs’s work to celebrate its opening; he’s been at Vuitton since 1997. Katie Grand (who styled Jacobs in drag for Industrie) will select pieces from his 70+ seasons at the house and curate the exhibit, which runs from Sept. 22 to Oct. 9.
As Fashionista points out, Grand has styled many of Jacobs’s shows, and even curated a small-scale retrospective of Jacobs’s work last year to celebrate the opening of Vuitton’s London flagship. Unless we’re reading way too much into it, this Milan retrospective seems like a much bigger deal. Or maybe the media is making it a bigger deal because everyone thinks Jacobs is headed to Dior? Either way, we’re bummed we won’t be in Italy to see it.
