Are Nicolas Ghesquière’s days numbered at Louis Vuitton?

By Astrid Wendlandt
Nicolas Ghesquière
Louis Vuitton generates more than half of LVMH’s profits and is the world’s No. 1 luxury brand by revenue. Under the bold new command of Pietro Beccari, who drove impressive growth at Dior, and before that at Fendi, expectations are that change is on the cards. The Italian luxury veteran took over the executive reins of the French luxury powerhouse a month-and-a-half ago. Since the appointment of singer Pharrell Williams as Louis Vuitton’s new menswear designer last month, all eyes are now on Nicolas Ghesquière. The French designer has been the creative director at Louis Vuitton’s womenswear for nearly a decade. Is it time for him to move on? Miss Tweed has the details.
