Hedi x Renzo = No Thank God

"NOT SO FAST: Sources said talks between representatives of Renzo Rosso of Diesel and Hedi Slimane took place as recently as this past weekend, but Slimane's people insist no deal has been made — and may never be. Following reports Slimane may be tapped to design Diesel's new Red Collection, one of his representatives told WWD that the former Dior Homme creative director has "no interest at all in Renzo Rosso's group, let alone Diesel." -WWD

Thank god, that would have completely cheapened the allure of Hedi's work and aesthetic as an artist and designer. I hope things progress between Slimane and LVMH so we can see his work in motion again.
