Nicolas Ghesquière is the new artistic director at Louis Vuitton, replacing Marc Jacobs, according to Luxury Daily.
Mr. Ghesquière takes over the position immediately, as Mark Jacobs already departed and is working with Louis Vuitton on his own line for the luxury industry conglomerate.
A previous report by WWD speculated that LV was in no hurry to find a replacement for Jacobs. Mr.Ghesquière’s autumn collectioni will be shown in March 2014.
…. “Louis Vuitton will look at the archives and find new ways to contemporize the brand while keeping its DNA,” said Milton Pedraza, CEO of The Luxury Institute, New York
