Louis Vuitton Renews Nicolas Ghesquière’s Contract

The beloved Women's Creative director is here to stay

Nicolas Ghesquière is celebrating ten years at Louis Vuitton, and his modernized vision for the Maison will continue on, as yesterday, the French brand announced the extension of the Creative Director’s contract.

The designer, who replaced Marc Jacobs, has had an incredibly successful reign, redefining womenswear at the Maison. His time has been full of creativity and innovation while staying true to the Maison’s storied history and distinct DNA, dipping into the brand’s archives, exploring its roots and eternal House codes while reinventing them for today.

His success has been recognized creatively by fashion critics and financially, bringing in a record-breaking €20 billion in annual sales last year.

The New Chapter of Louis Vuitton Lives On

While at the helm of the brand’s womenswear division, Ghesquière has done an incredible job at offering pieces with a modern yet sophisticated sensibility. He has consistently churned out collections full of covetable pieces that wow, and this chapter for the Maison will forge ahead.

“It is a true honour to continue writing the story of Louis Vuitton. We began the first chapter ten years ago, defining a new identity based on extraordinary heritage and a constant focus on innovation. -Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton Women’s Collections.

CEO Pietro Beccari also spoke highly of Ghesquière’s Louis Vuitton, further discussing the designer’s successes both creatively and for the Maison as a whole. While the designer has worked to redefine the world of womenswear, he has also helped to further the brand’s leather goods offering by creating numerous cornerstone silhouettes that have become new classics.

Not to mention, in the never-ending game of fashion musical chairs, it’s refreshing that Ghesquière’s seat at the table remains.
