Nicolas Ghesquière to Exit Louis Vuitton
Reuters is reporting that Nicolas Ghesquière intends to exit Louis Vuitton, where he’s been the women’s artistic director only three years, following Marc Jacobs’ 16-year tenure.
“People in the studio are expecting him (Ghesquière) to leave, possibly as early as after the October collection,” a source told the newswire.
A potential reason has not been given, but it follows a pattern of short stints. Earlier this year, Raf Simons (Dior) and Hedi Slimane (Saint Laurent) left their posts after roughly three years, while Maria Grazia Chiuri recently exited Valentino for Dior.
