Musical Chairs at LV
After a week of nail biting, rumors that Nicolas Ghesquière will be taking over from Marc Jacobs as Creative Director at Louis Vuitton have still not been confirmed. Whatever the case, there’s going to be a bit of a shuffle. As we all know, Alexander Wang is deep into his new position at Balenciaga, having just presented his second collection this past fashion week following Nicolas Ghesquière’s departure last November.
Whether Nicolas Ghesquière is confirmed or not, it appears Jacobs is for sure on the out. Now the question is, Where will Marc Jacobs go? Marc recently told the New York Times he’s going to lay low for a sec and just focus on his own line.
We suggest you snatch up some collector Marc Jacobs-era Louis Vuitton on eBay before the new stuff hits the stores — quite possibly designed by Ghesquière. Stay tuned.
