Nicolas Ghesquière’s name has become synonymous with Balenciaga over the 15 years he’s been creative director, which made today’s announcement that he and the house are parting ways at the end of this month as shocking as it is abrupt. Just days after his Spring ‘13 show in September,’s Jo-Ann Furniss sat down with Ghesquière at a photo studio outside of Paris to discuss his tenure at the label and the standout collection, while Alasdair McLellan shot a handful of Ghesquière’s favorite models in the new looks. The full story is in the new issue of (on stands today, or order online here); Furniss’ profile and a few images from McLellan’s portfolio are now online here. “That’s the thing in fashion,” Ghesquière said, “if you do not move, then you are dead.” No telling what his next move will be; for now, there’s only the testament of his collections. More than a decade’s worth are archived on here.
