“Ghesquière would bring a modern creative vision to the house’s women’s collections, building on the values of refinement, savoir faire and extreme quality.”
“Louis Vuitton has always incarnated for me the symbol of ultimate luxury, innovation and exploration. I am very honored of the mission that I am entrusted with, and proud to join the history of this great maison. We share common values and a vision.”
When Nicholas Ghesquière left Balenciaga this time last year, the world waited with it's breath bated of news as to what the French wunderkind would do next. Well, the wait is finally over. LVMH has confirmed the appointment of Ghesquière as it's new creative director -and with immediate effect- the designer will showcase his first collection for Vuitton in March next year.
Ghesquière is replacing Marc Jacobs, whose 16 year tenure at the storied fashion house ended last month.
I say it's an inspired choice as Nicholas is a visionary who would not only bring a breath of fresh air to the 160 year- old fashion house, but he would make it rock and roll cool for people to wear head-to-toe Vuitton again.
