This Nicolas Ghesquiere collection is the designer's first range for French fashion house Louis Vuitton. Nicolas replaces predecessor Marc Jacobs who stunned the label's loyal followers with his blend of playful prints and luxe design details. The Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 collection is a little more understated than Marc Jacobs' showings that tended to feature more color.

Following a 15 year stint at Balenciaga, Nicolas Ghesquiere creates a range of alpine-themed fashions for Louis Vuitton. The collection's standout looks are its knitted leggings that are paired with printed knits and fur collar coats. In addition to its luxe, winter staples, this collection subtly references the 70s and boats rich texture combinations.

The Nicolas Ghesquiere collection blends the designer's signature aesthetic with the legacy of Louis Vuitton and has gained mixed reviews from Marc Jacobs fans who were devastated by his departure from the luxury house.
