Louis Vuitton vs. Balenciaga: Ghesquière’s Next Chapter

From the enigmatic and avant-garde to the upbeat and ladylike (and oft monogram-laden): While both have storied histories, the house of Balenciaga could not be more different from mega-brand Louis Vuitton. Yet the wise choice of Nicolas Ghesquière to succeed Marc Jacobs was of no surprise to me.
