Will it be 'bienvenue' to Alber Elbaz soon at CHANEL? 17/3/10

As we've said before on many subjects, we're not big on rumours, we are focused on fact... nonetheless it would be 'rude' to you our dear readers to ignore the mounting speculation of a possible au revoir to Karl Lagerfeld and a bienvenue to Alber Elbaz. (see The MO Down 10/7/09). is reporting the rumour from the rumour reported by after they read a tweet by Tommy Ton (a fashion blogger of 'some' notoriety). What's that saying....Chinese Whispers...

The reader feedback is interesting to note on, Alber is an extremely popular consumer choice it seems thus far.
