nicolas ghesquière to start own label?
The designer hints at big things to come.
Nicolas Ghesquière, despite being one of the most influential and copied designers of the 21st century, has always shied away from starting his own label, repeatedly stating that he was happy working for a larger house during his tenure at Balenciaga. Yesterday, however, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton possibly confirmed what fans have been hoping for for almost two decades.
Fresh from Vuitton's cruise show in Rio, yesterday Ghesquière was a guest on the French TV show Petit Journal. When asked if there'd be a day he'd consider setting up his own label, the designer replied, without hesitation, "Yes, I wish to absolutely." Now the only question is, when? When probed further, Ghesquière was more elusive, saying, "I'd like to do it soon, very soon. I don't have a date but I'll let you know." We eagerly await.
