Kim Jones Leaves Louis Vuitton Mens for Dior Homme
By SENATUS Magazine | 20 March 2018
British designer Kim Jones having spent seven years as the head of Menswear at Louis Vuitton is set to take over the reins at Dior Homme. Whilst Jones made headlines with the recent collaboration between LV Mens and New York streetwear brand Supreme, his work has long been well admired in the industry, as well as by male customers, from footwear, to formal and casual wear offerings.

"I am deeply honoured to join the house of Dior, a symbol of the ultimate elegance," he said in a statement. "I am committed to create a modern and innovative male silhouette built upon the unique legacy of the house."

Jones replaces Kris Van Assche, who said he was leaving Dior Homme after 11 years at the head of the French menswear label. Van Assche’s departure comes only weeks after the arrival of new Christian Dior Couture chairman Pietro Beccari, who had worked with Jones at Louis Vuitton.

Dior said in a statement that the 41-year-old Belgian, who added a punk-ish street style influence to Dior’s fine tailoring, would be staying on with the luxury giant LVMH, which owns the label.
