Louis Vuitton turnover From Marc Jacobs to Nicolas Ghesqui�¨re

Bernard Arnault, head of LVMH and Robert Duffy, Marc Jacobs's assistant, confirmed this morning that his Paris fashion week collection for Louis Vuitton will be his last one. After sixteen years of collaboration, this is truly the end of an era.

The designer has done a fantastic job at the head of the luxury brand, bringing originality and fun thought all collection, every season. His shows were always huge and majestic,involving trains, rides, escalators or elevators, competing with the one and only Karl Lagerfeld. From runways to red carpet, he always encountered great success amongst everyone, from buyers to critics. He also never lacked inspiration, going from sexy bondage to childish innocence, or from to the sixties revisited to the dandy “robe de chambre” look. Now Nicolas Ghesquière, the ex-artistic director from Balenciaga is rumored to follow the lead, and we bet he will succeed, even thought Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton will always remain in fashion lovers's hearts. As for him, he needs to run his own brands, Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs, his newly launched makeup line and in three months, his brands into financial market.We see a very bright future for him though, as many people see him as the only designer capable to follow after Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel.
