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!
