How does a brand like Louis Vuitton pick a designer?
Almost a year after Virgil Abloh's passing, Louis Vuitton owner LVMH is expected to announce his successor in the coming weeks. Martine Rose, Grace Wales Bonner and Telfar Clemens are among the names floating around. Because of Abloh's undeniably transformative tenure at the brand, LVMH must tread lightly when it comes to finding the next in line. For Business of Fashion, Lauren Sherman explains that when a brand is doing well and the creative director exits, compiling a list of candidates to take over is harder than when a company is in need of a "significant refresh." "There is less risk with brands that are not in good shape," said Anne Raphaël, a managing partner at executive recruitment firm Boyden. "It's easier to take a bet." Ultimately, Raphaël says the decider is a gut feeling of how well the candidate understands the brand vision. {Business of Fashion}
