^^ I agree! The last collection from Fendi was quite nice! Anyways Nicolas for Fendi seems cool, he's worked with fur very well at Balenciaga but I'd really love him to start his own house and create his own DNA, ect. In the end I'm fine with anything tbh, I just really want to see new collections from him.

I feel like Fendi actually would be a rather exciting venture. A house that share's his unrelenting quest for new fabrications and new construction techniques - I mean, this is the house that created gold fur by throwing it in a pressurized vat with disolved bars of gold to be absorbed into the hairs of the pelts!

And Fendi could really use some clear direction. There's nothing that Karl has done design-wise at Fendi that a) has any relevence and b) has had any influence. Has he done nice things? Of course. But anything important or interesting in the grand scheme of fashion? Not at all.

Also - it'd be nice for Nicolas to be in a position at a house where the revenue is pretty much built in with its enormous handbag industry. It's not like Karl's clothes have truly made the house any money.

I also prefer the idea of Ghesquiere for Ghesquiere. If he's going to take established brands and do whatever suits his fancy with them, he might as well do that with his own brand. Aside from the last Balenciaga collection, his recent collections really were not relevant to the Balenciaga DNA.

I can never even remember the collections Karl puts out for Fendi 20 mins after I've just looked at it. Honestly I'm growing tired of Karl's aesthetic and it's about time he retires from somewhere. Fendi would be a great start. Ha.

Nicolas Ghesquiere own-label rumours gather pace

We were starting to wonder where Nicolas Ghesquière had got to.

Apart from his arrival to Twitter in January, and the two completely uninformative tweets that followed, we haven't heard a peep out of him since he stepped down as creative director at Balenciaga last November.

But over the last few days rumours have begun to surface that suggest the designer is looking to start his own brand, and that there are many potential - very wealthy - suitors trying to win him over.

The New York Post claims that Li & Fung, LVMH and Diesel's Renzo Russo are all interested in backing the Frenchman. "Everyone is trying to get him," an 'insider' told the publication, but the designer is reportedly keen to secure an equity stake in his own brand, something which Russo - who owns majority stakes in Maison Martin Margiela, Marni and Viktor & Rolf - has reportedly not offered.

Balenciaga's owner PPR, however, do not seem to be courting Ghesquière, suggesting that perhaps rumours of his frustration with the conglomerate being the reason for his departure, hold some truth.

Additionally, Ghesquière's close friend and Balenciaga stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé has revealed to The Cut that she is still working with the designer, suggesting that he is indeed working on something.

Sauvé also commented that "his vision goes beyond fashion" - could this mean we'll be seeing more than just clothes?

When and if Lagerfeld retires, I think he could do great things for Chanel, as well as the most recent news, which is wonderful. I'm curious to see what it will look like...

I'm sorry but NG+Chanel would be one of the worst combinations ever. His personal aesthetic goes completely against Chanel's. He really needs his own brand and most importantly, freedom.

If Karl retires, then I could see Nicholas at Fendi, don't you think? He's great at outerwear.

I just don't see him at what is really a furrier. I see no correlation between Fendi and NG. If he goes to a new house, it needs to be a large one like a Chanel, or in past tense, Balenciaga.

I think he would do great at Chanel. He mirrors that of Gabrielle, two designers obsessed with modernity. I really think he could work wonders with tweed and especially, the coveted Chanel accessories. I think it could truly be a winning combination.

I would love to see him at Chanel. That house needs a swift kick in the butt if there ever was one. Stale - beyond stale - designs. Alls he has to do is make sure to throw in a few tweed dress suits in there to satisfy the hardcore buyers, cause that's all kaiser Karl is doing these days.

I personally think Nicolas should be placed into a house like Vionnet, Emanuel Ungaro, or a brand that's currently in a desperate need of a new identity, because if you look at what happened with Celine, which didn't really have much of an identity to begin with, Phoebe managed to flip the house around and turn it into a financial success. So instead of throwing Nicolas with a brand who's identity is too commercially successful to try and play around with, give him a brand thats been out of sync with modern times, and play around with it and make it his own like he did with Balenciaga.

if Paco Robanne people are still finding their way, it can be a really good option imo.
