The rumours have swirled for months only to now finally be confirmed… former Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière is the new creative director for Louis Vuitton.
Who was LVMH trying to fool anyway with one of the worst kept secrets in fashion? There aren’t many seasoned designers out there with a proven track record and the critical acclaim to take on the multibillion dollar machine that is LV. Not to mention the storied and longstanding history of the brand. Certainly a daunting task but I’m quite excited for Ghesquière to finally have a new post and to see how he interprets the Vuitton heritage. After all, he revived Balenciaga and many of his design triumphs there still remain current and trendy today from shearling coats to motorcycle jackets/bags to florals, I’m expecting big things at LV!
Don’t do a lot of personal style posts, but here’s a start! Today finally warranted me pulling out my Whistles Marlon quilted leather jacket for coffee and a movie downtown.
This week Isabel Marant’s lookbook for her H&M collection hit the net and while I’m not completely persuaded to line up overnight for this one, I am seriously coveting the grey coats and casual tees…
Adore this snap of the Vogue Paris team in sync in denim, heels and sleek basics, they never fail to impress!
Another street style photo that offers up great fall inspiration, just can’t wait for leather jacket-wearing weather.
Happy that Edita Vilkeviciute has finally scored a major cover — October’s Vogue Paris lensed by Mario Testino. Inside the main editorial also stars Anja Rubik in a sumptuous, French Riviera-set of images.

Lachlan Bailey keeps it simple showcasing new classics from Equipment, Current/Elliott, Rag & Bone and Helmut Lang. Nothing too groundbreaking but always nice to see one of my fave models Edita Vilkeviciute in Industrie Magazine!
