Nicholas Ghesquière on luxury

5 Nov

“My idea of what is luxury craftsmanship is savoir-faire, unique and secret ways of craftsmanship and ‘exigence,”’ said the designer, using a difficult-to-translate French word meaning a demanding excellence.

“And time is luxury. To have time to develop, to have great ideas, to make a collection at the right time. Time is an important element,” Mr. Ghesquière continued. “First, there is innovation. Then it becomes timeless.”

Nicholas Ghesquière was recently appointed Artistic Director of Women’s Collections at Louis Vuitton. He was previously Creative Director of Balenciaga.
