Nicolas Ghesquiere to be the new Creative Director at Louis Vuitton

From WWD:
Ghesquière, 42, is to show his first collection for the French luxury firm next March.
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.”
“Louis Vuitton has always incarnated for me the symbol of ultimate luxury, innovation and exploration,” Ghesquière said. “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.”
I was praying for my homegurl Nicolas to finally get his ass back to a huge fashion house because lbr, the man is a genius and needs top notch resources and then this is confirmed *tears*. Ugh, there definitely is a god. The fact that LV doesn't really have an exact image regarding it's pret-a-porter (Marc was all over the place, but in a good way), Nicolas has the ability to expand into so many ideas, at least I'm assuming he'll have a lot of creative freedom. Nonetheless, with Wang at Balenciaga, Hedi at Saint Laurent, and now Nicolas at Louis Vuitton, Paris Fashion Week is on a totally different level. Can't wait for next season.
