"Even if we do not know the performance of Louis Vuitton specifically, it should not be pleasing."(/p) (p)Louis Vuitton is undergoing its most significant leadership change in more than two decades, currently parting ways with long-standing designer Marc Jacobs and reported to be in complex talks with Nicholas Ghesquiere, formerly at Balenciaga, to replace him.(/p) (p)Last year, Yves Carcelle, who headed Louis Vuitton for more than 20 years, was replaced by Michael Burke, an LVMH veteran who previously headed Bulgari.
