The announcement a few weeks ago that Nicolas Ghesquiere would be leaving Balenciaga after 15 years at the helm created a lot of speculation not only of who would replace him, but around whether it was possible to replace him. Today see’s the announcement that New Yok designer, Alexander Wang will take this role on. While of course the proof will have to follow – I personally think that if anyone can full Ghesquiere’s shoes, its Alexander Wang.
