Nicolas Ghesquière is currently killing it in his role at Louis Vuitton. The collections he’s put out since signing on with the brand have been pretty well-received, but like many designers, Ghesquière dreams of one day sitting at the head of his own label. The Wall Street Journal published a profile on the creative director today, in which he expresses that he’s been mulling over the thought of starting up a Ghesquière-branded line.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to do it,” he admitted. But don’t think he’s rushing off to sign contracts and hire staff. The designer is just getting settled at Vuitton and is taking things slow. “I would like to do it, but each thing in its time. Today I dedicate myself to Louis Vuitton without forgetting that I have wishes, desires.”
Of course, Ghesquière has a few conditions if he were ever to start a label. “If it’s to reproduce on a smaller scale what is done on a large scale, honestly, no, it’s not interesting,” he said. “And that’s not at all the way that I one day envisage launching myself, especially having experienced the biggest existing model.”
Whether Ghesquière will follow through on his dreams (we have a feeling he may) or not, we don’t doubt that a namesake brand from the designer would be worth the wait.
