While it’s always exciting when two fashion forces join together, sometimes it’s best to let things run their course and move on—and that’s the case for Balenciaga and Nicolas Ghesquière.

According to a press release, both sides made the call to sever their arrangement, and the decision will be effective as of November 30th, 2012.

Ghesquiere, who has served as Creative Director for Balenciaga since 1997, will definitely be missed as he moves on to his next venture.

PPR Chairman/CEO Francois-Henri Pinault explained, “Cristobal Balenciaga was a master, a genius whose avant-garde vision dictated fashion’s greatest trends and inspired generations of designers. With an incomparable creative talent, Nicolas has brought to Balenciaga an artistic contribution essential to the unique influence of the house.
