Ten years ago, in November 2013, the then-creative director of Balenciaga Nicolas Ghesquière started his new job as women’s creative director at Louis Vuitton. Today, one of the longest running tenures in fashion has been extended for five more years, which will see Ghesquière matching his fifteen year stint at Balenciaga.

In a statement, Ghesquière said, “It is a true honour to continue writing the story of Louis Vuitton. We began the first chapter ten years ago, defining a new identity based on extraordinary heritage and a constant focus on innovation. In particular, I have had the privilege to harness the talent and expertise of the Maison and its teams to develop new codes. I am forever grateful for the trust and support of Bernard Arnault and Pietro Beccari on this incredible journey.”

Pietro Beccari, Louis Vuitton’s Chairman and CEO, said, “I am immensely proud to collaborate with Nicolas Ghesquière who is a true creative genius. His redefinition of the Women’s Universe at Louis Vuitton, including a sharp new ready-to-wear silhouette, iconic models of leather goods and shoes, and numerous astounding destination shows, has contributed in no uncertain terms to the Maison’s success over the past decade. I am very much looking forward to continuing to pave the future of Louis Vuitton together.”
