Balenciaga’s star designer Nicolas Ghesquiere, whose surprise departure was announced on Monday, could be poised to launch his own brand for the luxury giant LVMH. Fashion brands in the LVMH empire include Christian Dior, Celine, Kenzo and Givenchy and Louis Vuitton.
One the most acclaimed designers of his generation, Ghesquiere will leave Balenciaga on November 30 after 15 years during which which he put the historic house of Spanish designer Cristobal Balenciaga back on the fashion map.
Balenciaga, a basque designer (Spanish), had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as “the master of us all” by Christian Dior. It’s really the first best designer.
I recommend to visit his museum in Getaria ( a small town near to San Sebastian). The wonderful lights add value to his creations. The dresses are art, contemporary art.
