Nicolas Ghesquiere to replace Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton?


Nicolas Ghesquière has allegedly been appointed as Louis Vuitton’s new creative director.

The French designer is due to take over from Marc Jacobs after his 16-year tenure at the helm of the luxury brand, if the rumours reported by New York Magazine are to be believed.

The former Balenciaga star – who is being sued by the fashion house’s owner, Kering, for breach of confidentiality after criticising its management in an interview – is thought to have been the frontrunner for a while, but the news has yet to be confirmed.

A spokesperson for luxury conglomerate LVMH told WWD that “nothing has been decided”, while fashion journalists from the Financial Times have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the denial.

Lizzie Paton wrote on the social networking site: “#LVMH is officially denying the Nicholas Ghesquiere @LouisVuitton appt – given he is front runner they could just be stalling for time?”

Vanessa Friedman posted: “@LVMH officially denying; possible different in morning?”

Jacobs announced he would be leaving Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week in order to focus on his eponymous brand.

LMVH’s chairman Bernard Arnault insisted at the time: “No decision is done. We have to, after the show, think and decide. But no decision will be made immediately.”

Nicolas Ghesquiere diduga telah ditunjuk sebagai creative director baru untuk Louis Vuitton.

Desainer Perancis ini mengambil alih dari Marc Jacobs, setelah masa bekerjanya selama 16 tahun mengemudikan brand mewah tersebut, jika rumor yang dilaporkan oleh New York Magazine benar.

Mantan bintang Balenciaga – yang digugat oleh pemilik rumah mode, Kering, untuk pelanggaran kerahasiaan setelah mengkritik manajemen dalam sebuah wawancara – diperkirakan telah menjadi pelopor untuk sementara waktu, namun berita ini belum dapat dikonfirmasi.

Seorang juru bicara LVMH mengatakan kepada WWD bahwa “belum ada keputusan”, sementara wartawan fashion dari Financial Times telah menggunakan Twitter untuk berbagi pikiran mereka pada penolakan tersebut.

Lizzie Paton menulis di situs jejaring sosial: “#LVMH secara resmi menyangkal Nicholas Ghesquiere @LouisVuitton appt – mengingat ia menjadi pelopor mereka hanya akan mengulur-ulur waktu?”

Vanessa Friedman menulis: “@LVMH resmi menyangkal, mungkin berbeda di pagi hari?”

Jacobs mengumumkan ia akan meninggalkan Louis Vuitton pada Paris Fashion Week, dalam rangka untuk fokus pada merek eponymousnya.

Ketua LMVH Bernard Arnault bersikeras pada saat itu:  “Belum ada keputusan yangpasti. Kita harus, setelah pertunjukan, berpikir dan memutuska. Tapi belum ada keputusan yang dibuat sekarang.”
