Nicolas Ghesquière Makes His Instagram Debut With Sneakers and Star Wars
Instagram, say hello to Nicolas Ghesquière, creative director of Louis Vuitton. The designer is the latest member of the fashion world to join the photo-sharing platform. Among his first snaps? A Star Wars' Stormtrooper figurine taking in the Paris skyline at sunset and pointing toward the Eiffel Tower—which proves he has quite the sense of humor. Other shots he posted include more photos from his travels through Paris and Madrid, a self portrait, and a pair of tattered Adidas Stan Smith sneakers adorned with his face.
Ghesquière may only be a recent convert to social media (he joined Twitter just last year), but the celebrated designer already has 4,594 followers to date on Instagram, a number that's rapidly growing. With the French native kicking off a new era at Louis Vuitton and his newfound foray into social media, Ghesquière surely has a big year ahead of him.
