Update: reports are now quelling the rumours, with both Kane and Balenciaga denying the appointment. Seems we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out who’s really taking the reins.

Nicolas Ghesquiere leaving Balenciaga was quite big – and sudden – news. Unsurprisingly there have been guessing games as to his successor. Reports are now in that Christopher Kane is the newly (and quickly?) appointed Creative Director of the French fashion house.

The news comes via The Cut, who are gleaning their intel from France’s Nouvel Observateur.

What this would mean for Kane’s own line and his work with Versace’s Versus line is yet to be known.
