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."
