Keep the rumors coming!

Telegraph is reporting that Erdem designer, Erdem Moralioglu, is lined up to become Creative Director for the re-launch of Schiaparelli.

Previous rumors have mentioned that Nicolas Ghesquière left Balenciaga to head up Schiaparelli, which could make sense, but really so could pretty much anything at this point.

Let's not forget that Alexander Wang was as surprised to hear the rumor about taking over Dior as we were...

But to keep the rumors flowing, Telegraph is also sending out signals that London's Christopher Kane is next in line to replace Ghesquière at Balenciaga.

Kane certainly has the design aesthetic to take the reigns from Ghesquière, but we find it hard to believe he would move brands when he currently works so closely with Italian mega-brand, Versace (he currently co-designs Versace's Versus line with Donatella).

Not surprisingly, the fashion folk at Kane, Balenciaga, Schiaparelli, and Erdem are all keep their lips tightly sealed, and with this many spots to be filled we can be sure to have another Dior gossip extravaganza all over again.

Oh, to be a fly on the all at one of these fashion houses...
