Just a site for some crazy little things, but we do like.
What a shock news from PPR group that Nicolas Ghesquière end 15 years of relationship with major house “Balenciaga” by end of November 2012. From the statement from PPR group
“The Balenciaga fashion house and Nicolas Ghesquière have announced their joint decision to end their working relationship as of 30 November 2012.
Nicolas Ghesquière has been the Creative Director of Balenciaga since 1997.
François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and Chief Executive of PPR, said: “Cristóbal Balenciaga was a master, a genius whose avant-garde vision dictated fashion’s greatest trends and inspired generations of designers. With an incomparable creative talent, Nicolas has brought to Balenciaga an artistic contribution essential to the unique influence of the house”.

After assisting Jean Paul Gaultier, and working on knitwear at Pôles, Ghesquière originally joined Balenciaga, at age 23, to create, “among other things, funeral clothes for the Japanese licensing market,” according to the Times. He was named creative director of the brand two years later, in 1997.
There is no next step’s hint of Mr. Nicolas nor successor’s candidate were revealed yet. Musical chair starts now!
