Louis Vuitton's new creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere recently debuted his first collection for the label at Paris Fashion Week to critical acclaim. The Autumn/Winter 2014 presentation showed the designer's new vision for the luxurious Parisian fashion house and it was a fresh start, with new silhouettes and not many references to past designs. Ghesquiere commented that designing the collection was a lot of work but he decided to take a relaxed and casual approach to the design process: "It was a lot of work. But I wanted to approach it with an ease. I didn't want to do a story. It's clearly a wardrobe, a new, more casual approach that I'm interested in. At Vuitton, you have iconic pieces, you have comfortable pieces, you have embellished pieces and it's the way you wear them that's important."

Nicolas also added that he wanted there to be a closer connection between the company's famous leather goods and the clothing items, so he decided to work with the leather team to creating some of the items from the new collection. He said that he would like people to see Louis Vuitton as more than just an accessories company which is often what it is best known for: "Of course, given the name, leather is very important. I asked the leather ateliers to develop some of the clothes - I wanted to tighten the relationship between leather goods and ready-to-wear. People have a tendency to see Vuitton as a leather goods company because the bags are so strong. I really wanted to integrate them with the look."
