Forget top models, Louis Vuitton is snagging all the September issues.
It is a new designer’s responsibility to create a buzz and anticipation around the brand. Considering Nicolas Ghesquière’s first collection has been on four major Vogues such as China, UK, Russia and Paris; he has proven his career at LV will be both long and prosperous. Known for their commercial success in leather handbag sales, Louis Vuitton is one of the most profitable luxury brands in the world. It is probable that Ghesquière’s focused vision of the brand will help create long-term luxury clients and increase stagnant ready-to-wear sales. Although his first collection for LV was tamer than his days at Balenciaga, Ghesquière’s creative freedom will definitely flourish as he starts to interpret and define the Louis Vuitton woman. So far, I like what I see. Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection is effortlessly chic. It was filled with simple silhouettes, leather, A-line skirts and comfy sweaters that could easily become your favorites. Not only has Ghesquière won over the hearts of editors across the world, but he also did it with style and ease.
