When Marc Jacobs announced his departure from Louis Vuitton this past September to give his full attention to his namesake label, my heart broke a little. Let's be honest here, everyone felt a little pang of pain.
To fill that void, Louis Vuitton has tapped Nicolas Ghesquière, formerly at Balenciaga for 15 years.
Ghesquière's first collection for Vuitton will be shown in March 2014.
“Louis Vuitton has always incarnated for me the symbol of ultimate
luxury, innovation and exploration,” Ghesquière said. “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.”
