Today's WWD calls Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière a "designer's designer," pointing to praise from Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Louboutin, and elegant-phraser-of-things J.W. Anderson, who has this to say:
I really respect what he’s done, and I think he is extremely important in this industry ... I think he pushes, and I think fundamentally I can say he’s just got a very sharp approach to things. There’s no dicking around.
It doesn't get much more eloquent than that.
