The New York Times takes us inside the studio of Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of Louis Vuitton. The French fashion designer is comfortably sharing his style of working, things that inspire him and also his need for a private yet large space. When asked if this giant space on the top of the Louis Vuitton building was always the design office, he replied, “No, it was the showroom. I asked for it. The fashion heart of Louis Vuitton is divided in two spaces: this one on the fourth floor, and the second floor, which is the workshop, fabric selection and everything.” Once he took over the space, the floor was cleaned up and a few mirrors were put on the walls to render the full view and make sure that the studio is brigthly lit with the beautiful Parisian light. Know more about the 44 year old designer’s lifestyle and how he handles pressure at work in the video below.
