• Marc Jacobs is demanding over $10 million to take over for Galliano at Dior. But with the amount of work he’d have to do at Dior, I’d highball them too! WWD says: “Dior, of course, is a much more demanding job than Louis Vuitton, with two couture collections in addition to two ready-to-wear shows and pre-collections. Also, the immense craftsmanship involved in couture means Jacobs would have to spend even more time in Paris working with the atelier on the collection. All of this would come on top of his own women’s and men’s wear lines, as well as Marc by Marc Jacobs, both of which have seen significant growth over the last few years.” What do you think? Is Jacobs asking too much, or is this a reasonable salary requirement? (Racked)
