Slimane Chances?

Could Hedi Slimane be Heding back to LVMH?

WWD is reporting that less than a year from leaving Dior Homme, Hedi Slimane has renewed talks with LVMH chair Bernard Arnault about the possibility of launching an eponymous fashion house. A favorite among celebrities including Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Linda Evangelista, Slimane has a cult following that is said to fuel Mr. Arnault's interest, but he isn't the only one with an eye on the designer. According to rumors, Diesel's Renzo Rosso (who also backs Margiela and Sophia Kokosalaki) is also talking to Slimane about financial backing.
