Louis Vuitton Confirms Ghesquière Hire

-------

Ghesquiere After months of rumors (and a few preemptive confirmations), Louis Vuitton has finally made it official: Nicolas Ghesquière is the house’s new creative director. “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. Together, we will build the future of the brand while preserving its precious heritage,” the former Balenciaga designer said in a statement. Following in the footsteps of Marc Jacobs, who became Vuitton’s first creative director in 1997, Ghesquière will present his debut collection for the house in March. And, considering the forward-thinking and frenzy-inducing luxury looks he produced in his previous role (Fall 2012′s sci-fi sweatshirts, anyone?), we have a feeling that a whole new generation of on-the-pulse women is going to be lusting after LV.
