Nicolas Ghesquiere Officially Named as New Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton
It's official! Nicolas Ghesquiere, formerly of Balenciaga, has been named Marc Jacobs' successor at Louis Vuitton. After much speculation, Louis Vuitton made the announcement this morning via Twitter. According to WWD, we'll be able to see Ghesquiere's work as soon as March (for Fall 2014). Any thoughts?
Can't really say I'm surprised, however, as a designer who has created hysteria-worthy handbags in the past, I'm sure Ghesquiere will be able to easily assist Louis Vuitton in its quest to position itself for upmarket customers.
