Nico­las Gh­esquière’s knack for re­defin­ing wardrobe codes is what makes his ten­ure at Louis Vuit­ton es­pe­cially il­lu­mi­nat­ing. That, cou­pled with the abil­ity to weave in Louis Vuit­ton’s travel her­itage into the mix, has earned him a new le­gion of fans. Gh­esquière was par­tic­u­larly in­spired dur­ing a visit to New York’s Met Mu­seum, where the 18th-cen­tury French aris­to­cratic gar­ments on dis­play set him on a quest to trans­late the “no­tion of a peren­nial style” for the Mai­son. In­side the Lou­vre’s Pav­il­lon de l’Hor­loge, he made a com­pelling case by con­vinc­ingly con­trast­ing the re­gal air of bro­cade frock coats and vests with frilly blouses, sporty shorts or leather trousers; each en­sem­ble trans­ported to the fu­ture on the soles of equally in­no­va­tive-look­ing sneak­ers.
