Apple rumored to be hiring Paul Deneve from French fashion house
Apple is hiring Paul Deneve away from French fashion house Saint Laurent, a source tells <em>AppleInsider</em>. Saint Laurent has confirmed that Deneve is leaving his current position as CEO, but as for his destination will only say that he's going to "pursue a career in the technology industry." Apple has refused to comment, and the source hasn't <a href="">provided</a> any details on what role Deneve might take on.<br /><br />Lending credence to the idea of his joining Apple is his work history. Deneve worked for Apple between 1990 and 1997 in a variety of sales and marketing positions. In recent times, he has also advised some Silicon Valley startups, in addition to managing fashion companies like Courreges, Nina Ricci, and Lanvin.<br />
<br />
Deneve could potentially service as a replacement for John Browett, who was fired as head of Apple retail last October. More speculation suggests that he could be involved with <a href="" rel='nofollow'>the iWatch project</a>. Watches are more fashion-oriented than most Apple products, and Deneve's background would be useful in marketing.

Good. iOS 7 needs some fabric textures.
