It seems Francesco Russo has been scouted by Dior to work with Raf Simons on the label's footwear collection

Rumour has it that shoe designer Francesco Russo has been scouted by Dior to work alongside Raf Simons to head up its womens footwear creative team.  Russo was the Creative Director at Italian brand Sergio Rossi from 2008–2013, and he just recently left the shoe and accessory brand to develop his own footwear label in September this year, with an atelier on Rue de Valois in Paris.

"I want to make beautiful shoes, above any sense of time, above any sense of fashion," Russo explained.

Neither party has officially confirmed the move as yet – watch this space.
