Whispers on the wind are murmuring that Alber Elbaz will take the helm of the mighty ocean liner H.M.S. Chanel. It's not official and for that reason I'm extremely uncomfortable with this post. But it appears that the heir apparent is Alber Elbaz. An official announcement is moments away so you and I will have to wait and see. It's an interesting and compelling choice, confounding in some ways and very prescient in others. I'm going to ruminate on this for a few hours and get back to you. I don't like rumors and especially when they're fuelled by hot air, but there just may be something to this. I pride myself with tackling what is and not chasing or trumpeting what isn't.....It's just another manic Monday .
