Despite a flurry of reports in the French media
last night that Scottish designer Christopher Kane
had been offered and had accepted the creative director position at Balenciaga
, WWD reports
this morning that Kane's spokesperson has issued a denial.
"Rumors surrounding Christopher Kane's appointment as creative director of Balenciaga are unfounded," the rep told the trade paper.
PPR, Balenciaga's parent company, has not commented and a spokesperson for Balenciaga told WWD
"it does not comment on rumors."
