If there’s one designer who’s not going anywhere (at least for the next five years), it’s Nicolas Ghesquière. Ghesquière, who took over the role from Marc Jacobs in 2013, debuted his first collection for the luxury Maison on March 5, 2014, and will be celebrating his 10th anniversary this upcoming Paris Fashion Week. To honor this milestone, the designer will be sitting down with 10 special friends and collaborators of the brand for a new series.
The first episode, which airs today on Louis Vuitton’s YouTube channel, stars house ambassador Emma Stone in an intimate conversation with Ghesquière in which they ask each other personal questions. Some of those fielded by Ghesquière include his favorite Emma Stone movie, his favorite collection he’s created for the brand, and how his perception of the brand changed from when he first started versus now. “I had the idea that I would be welcomed and supported. Vuitton was very inspiring for me because the story had to be written. Vuitton has a very short history of ready-to-wear. 25 years in totality. 15 years with Marc, and I’m celebrating my 10 years, extending for five more now,” said Ghesquière. “So I’m writing the story of fashion for womenswear at Louis Vuitton, and almost no one can be in that position today.”
As for what the designer’s favorite Emma Stone movie is, you’ll have to find out by tuning in to the podcast. (Surprise, it’s a cult classic rom-com: it turns out designers watch the same films as the rest of us).
