Confirmed: Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton

hot off the press

It was only a matter of time, but it's officially confirmed (finally!) that Nicolas Ghesquière is the new artistic director of Louis Vuitton. The appointment came almost a year to the day he exited Balenciaga. Therewith he's taking over of none other than Marc Jacobs who left the label last month. "I have a lot of respect and admiration for Marc Jacobs. He made Louis Vuitton relevant in fashion and will always be known as the first designer of the brand. I'm very proud to succeed him." In early October it was already leaked that Ghesquière was appointed. The news made the headlines on Twitter, but was consistently denied by LVMH.

But now the word is out! Ghesquière will bring "a modern, creative vision to the house's women's collections, building on the values of refinement, savoir faire and extreme quility," says Vuitton. When he left Balenciaga there were rumors that he was in talks with LVMH to do his own line. Ghesquière told Suzy Menkes that it's something he will always think about, "one day maybe I do my own name, but not now when I was asked to do something so fantastic."

Because he did things at Balenciaga we must not forget
(if we ever could),
here are some of his highlights:
The designer will show his first collection for the fashion house next March. He said he will not give any interviews until that time "to keep it a surprise". The show will take place in Paris monument Cour Carrée du Louvre.

I have no doubt he'll do great at Vuitton.
What about you?
