CRUISE CONTROL: Cruise collections are a moving target this season. Dior, which had planned to stage its show in Los Angeles on May 9, has changed gears and decided on a new country and date, WWD has learned. The cruise show is now slated for May 11 on the French Riviera not far from Cannes. Dior has yet to reveal the venue, but is said to have seized on an opportunity it couldn’t resist. It still puts the French house in close proximity to the global film elite, as the Cannes Film Festival opens May 13.
