Marc Jacobs praises his LV successor Nicolas Ghesquière

Marc Jacobs, the former artistic director of famed fashion house Louis Vuitton, has praised his successor Nicolas Ghesquière, who took over the creative reins of the French brand in November, 2013.
 
According to telegraph.co.uk, the American design talent Jacobs expressed his immense faith in the artistic capabilities of the French-born designer at the recently held Tate Modern’s John Edwards Lecture Series in London.
 
Right after showcasing his Spring/Summer-2014 collection for Louis Vuitton at the Paris Fashion Week’s September, 2013 calendar, the 50-year-old Jacobs left the brand to concentrate on his own eponymous label, for which he would float an IPO for raising capital.
 
Based on a pre-dominantly dark, nightmarish and almost mourning like theme, his 41-piece ready-to-wear collection included thick floor sweeping Edwardian dresses, feathery cabaret-style jackets, decorative corsets, blue baggy jeans and bodystocking printed with the famous Stephen Sprouse graffiti.
 
Before joining Louis Vuitton, the 42-year-old Ghesquière has worked as creative director for Parisian label Balenciaga for 15 years.
