As Rumors have been speculating these past few months, about Marc Jacobs leaving Louis Vuitton, and Nicolas Ghesquière taking the Louis Vuitton reign. I can confirm the rumors are true. As Marc Jacobs’ leaves a memorable Spring 2014 farewell show, former Balenciaga Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière will succeed as Creative Director at Louis Vuitton. Showing his first collection for the Iconic brand in March of 2014 during Fall 2014 Fashion Week, just like how designer Jeremy Scott, will be showing his debut collection for Moschino.
Ghesquière says that, “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.”
As the Louis Vuitton brand says that Ghesquière will bring a “a modern creative vision to the house’s women’s collections, building on the values of refinement, savoir faire and extreme quality.”
Since Ghesquière had a stellar 15 years at the House of Balenciaga, bringing many a-list guests waiting to see his collections for the house each season. I bet that Ghesquière will do the same, if not even better at the House of Vuitton. Can’t wait to see the many Beautiful and creative ideas Ghesquière has up his sleeve for the House of Vuitton this March. New beginnings at Louis Vuitton are on it’s way!
