Nicolas Ghesquière Officially Confirmed as Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director.

After Marc Jacobs stepped down from Louis Vuitton, the upper luxury brand confirmed that his successor will be Nicolas Ghesquière. The designer – formerly creative director of Balenciaga – will begin his role immediately.

His task is expected to be hard as  the bar is already too high after 16 years of successul work from his preceding director making the French label one of the bestselling luxury labels in the world.

“Louis Vuitton has always incarnated for me the symbol of ultimate luxury, innovation and exploration,” Ghesquière said today. “I am very honoured 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.”

Vuitton said Ghesquière would bring “a modern creative vision to the house’s women’s collections, building on the values of refinement, savoir faire and extreme quality,” WWD reports – and it is hoped that he will bring a new era to Vuitton in the same way he did at Balenciaga.”
