Louis Vuitton Names Nicolas Ghesquière As The New Artistic Director

Leaving Balenciaga. Arriving bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Nicolas Ghesquière is the new artistic director of women’s collections at Louis Vuitton, reports Women’s Wear Daily. The position has been open since Marc Jacobs — the celebrated American designer who sat at the helm of the design house for 16 years — stepped down before the 2014 ready-to-wear runway show in Paris in October.

Since Ghesquière’s abrupt departure from Balenciaga last November, there has been much speculation over his next move. In May, System magazine published an exclusive tell-all interview with the designer, in which he detailed the challenges he faced while working under parent company Kering.

In the interview, the designer confessed, “I began to feel as though I was sucked dry, like they wanted to steal my identity while trying to homogenize things.” Ghesquière’s indiscretion violated his separation agreement, and Kering filed a lawsuit to cover damages to the brand. (TDB)

Despite bitter endings, the designer’s 15-year term at Balenciaga was defined as a phenomenal success. As early as 2001, Suzy Menkes of The International Herald Tribune said, “Nicolas Ghesquière is the most intriguing and original designer of his generation. His collections are explorations of shape, volume, and embellishment that seem totally new—yet reflect in a glancing, abstract way the style of the iconic design house that shelters him.” (TDB)

His work amassed such a cult following that it inspired the pertinent (now-defunct) Tumblr, Balenciaga Did It First, and his exacting mix of sportswear, tailoring, and shapes cut with couture-like precision defined the fashion landscape for many seasons. The fashion world largely has Ghesquière to thank for popularizing everything from bra tops and sculpted sleeves (although Cristobal Balenciaga did do that first), to graphic slogan sweaters—like those from the Balenciaga Fall 2012 collection that still remain the most photographed street style look in recent memory.

That is a quality Ghesquière and his predecessor, Jacobs, have in common. Jacobs launched ready-to-wear for the luxury house and, during his 16-year career, helped build the booming business that is now defined as LVMH’s “cash cow.” It was also during Jacobs’s time that Louis Vuitton was at the forefront of logomania, which, despite hefty price tags, inspired mass-market appeal and copycats across the globe. (TDB)

It’s probable that Ghesquière, whose approach to womenswear recalls that of studied couturiers, will focus on instilling a more elite sensibility to the collections and the brand at large. It poses the question: will the spectacular Louis Vuitton presentations at Paris Fashion Week be a thing of the past? The media has come to anticipate fantastical sets, not to mention generous ticket allocations, at the Louis Vuitton shows. But, large-scale events and theatrics are not Ghesquière’s way: he prefers intimate, more traditional presentations. (TDB)

Regardless, the new artistic director will assuredly take the brand (which celebrates its 160th anniversary next year) to an exciting new place—it’s sure to be an interesting ride come March. (TDB)

Finding the Right Mix

004a1

“The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world.”
— Alicia Keys

Life is not as easy as it used to be and we now all find ourselves always trying to catch up with the pace of life. We often find ourselves attempting to balance our career, hobbies, relationships, and aspirations, but how do we know if we have the right mix?

Sometimes we feel it in our gut, but other times, it’s our daily regimens that tell us if we have the right mix. If the day starts off smoothly, that’s an instant energy booster for us to get through anything. So, start your day right with Optimo’s 3+3 Coffee Mix.

OPTIMO LOGO

Optimo offers a premium and healthy coffee mix sweetened with Suchero instead of the usual chemical or artificial sweetener we often come across. The Suchero coco sap in Optimo is a branded coconut sap sweetener that is drier than most coconut sap sweeteners, allowing it to have a longer shelf life. It is also a 100% natural and organic coconut sap sweetener that creates the right mix with three herbal extracts, namely Gingko Biloba, Grape Seed, and Green Tea.

The strong brew of Optimo is enhanced by the caramel taste of the Suchero coco sap. As sweet as Optimo is with this healthy sweetener, Optimo doesn’t lead you to a sugar crash. The sweetener gives you the flavor you want, but with its “slow burning” properties, the energy released by the coconut sap is distributed over a longer amount of time, allowing your blood sugar to remain stable. Thus, Optimo is an ideal coffee drink for even the healthiest of health buffs.

Additional health benefits in the Optimo 3+3 Coffee Mix can be found in the three herbs present in the mix; the first being the Gingko Biloba herb known as the “mind and memory extract” which, as studies have showed, improves mental performance and mood. The second herb is the Green Tea herb which is recognized for its anti-oxidant properties as well as the increase of one’s metabolism. Lastly, there’s the Grape Seed herb known as the “beauty” extract with concentrated amounts of Vitamin E which repairs collagen and protects your skin from sun damage.

A good spirit inside is the result of what we take in, the more positive, and healthier the better. Especially now, fast-paced and multi-faceted are the best words to describe the lifestyle of today’s youth. Optimo’s 3+3 Coffee Mix is the Right Mix for you.

Fatima Guerrero Opened Hari Raya Muslim Fashion Show 2013

Rediscover Bangsamoro

Rediscover Bangsamoro

“Fashion is not just the clothes, nice dresses and bags, the mix and match and all but Fashion is Culture.”

“You can tell a person’s culture base on the way he/she dresses up. Its not judgement nor stereotype, but its image. You have to let your clothes to speak for you. ”

Project Runway Philippines’ first Muslim designer  Fatima Guerrero opened the the Hari Raya Show in her neon color blocking pieces veiled in printed headpieces which gained the attention of the crowd.

Hari Raya Aidilfitri is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims. Hari Raya literally means ‘celebration day’, and Hari Raya Aidilfitri is the day that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of dawn-to-sunset fasting.

Hari Raya Aidilfitri is considered one of the two most important celebrations for Muslims, the other being Hari Raya Haji – the festival of Abraham’s sacrifice.-

Part of the celebration is a Muslim Fashion Show, where they should interpret the theme “Rediscover Bangsamoro” in Muslim traditional costumes, to Muslim inspired styling and designs.

Its my first time to watch a Muslim Fashion Show but I really enjoyed it, I love the styling- the layering, the flowiness of the fabric, and most of all theculture itself, it makes you more curious whats inside, mysteriously unveiling.

It is indeed a modern take in Muslim fashion, covered but gorgeous, loud but sophisticated, big but shapy.

Congratulations to our Muslim brothers and sisters! 🙂
