Just because Alexander Wang has officially replaced him at Balenciaga doesn’t mean we’ve heard the last of the great Ghesquière (and thank goodness for that).
The designer joined Twitter today under the handle @TWNGhesquiere, Elle France is reporting. He may be late to the social media game but a) he’s in good company considering the Pope joined yesterday, and b) it’s nevertheless a promising sign that we’ll see more of Ghesquière soon.
It’s also an interesting move considering Balenciaga CEO Isabelle Guichot recently said one of the reasons Alexander Wang was hired to replace Ghesquière was his mastery of the “digital world.” Hmm…
@TWNGhesquiere (the TW apparently just stands for Twitter as fake fans are tweeting under his real name) hasn’t dropped any witticisms on us yet but, needless to say, we’ll be waiting.
