Raf Simons sneakers

The Paris fashion house announced that Raf Simons was taking over as artistic director, replacing John Galliano, who was fired from Dior last year after he made anti-Semitic remarks. Mr. Simons’s first collection is planned for July at the fall haute couture shows in Paris.

The choice of Mr. Simons culminates more than a year of discussions and apparent soul-searching by Dior and its boss, Bernard Arnault, who is chairman of LVMH, about the ideal person to give creative direction to the 66-year-old luxury brand. The company issued a statement that the new Dior designer “will propel its iconic style into the 21st century.”

Raf Simons is famed for his sophisticated, modern collections that are infused with sportswear influences. I just want to infuse my wardrobe and walk the streets in a pair of his sneakers. +thematerialsleuth+
