Meltdown incoming ...
Major eye roll right now.
Wow was planning to sleep in for one more hour but this news WOKE me up when I saw it on the newsfeed. Not shocked judging by the current climate but I just refuse to accept that my nightmare is actually happening.
This thread about to go off with the aristocratic fashionistas ...lol..Congrats to big bro ...
Sorry... is this an early April Fools Joke??
Congratulations to Virgil, a genius of modern times! I mean, he has to be.. how else does someone who has copied every single designer under the sun and knows sh*t about fit and construction become head designer of a brand like Vuitton?
Someone there must've really been into The Smashing Pumpkins and forgot the rest of that last show.
Not surprised at all. There is a new trend in fashion and it's called desperation.
I swear I'm feeling light headed, this is such a punch to the gut. How can someone so untalented get this far? He will now have his very mediocre career validated by LV's prestige. God forgive us...
The beginning of the end. I just can't.
Wow how desperate.
This isn't going to turn things around for LV menswear, this is such a silly stunt, and when have these stunt appointments ever paid off? They buy into the hype and the social media nonsense, but it's such a short sighted way to conduct business.
Oh, dear God! I mean, what a way to start a Monday! It's far too soon for him, he doesn't even have a voice yet. Never cared much about LV men's anyway, so he can run it to the ground.
With such a long delay between Kim exiting and this being announced, I would say contract negotiations weren't easy.
I'm not a fan of this at all, since I'm guessing he's going to continue with Off-White. What I love about Kim and Nicolas is that they have no other output so all of their vision goes into one collection, which is one fault of Demna's because we're seeing a repeat of his aesthetic in two outputs instead of one (for example).
I just don't want to see overpriced sweaters, I don't see how he's going to last in a house with such a high product turnover that constantly needs to see innovation and new-ness. He doesn't even have that much of a history with accessories particularly SLG's and Bags.
This news gave me "cancer". It's like Wang for Balenciaga all over again and at this point I feel like for Nicolas it's time to leave because it's quite disrespectful to be under the same brand with this "copycat".
