After 11 years at the helm of Dior Homme Kris Van Assche is stepping down from his role as artistic director.
Replacing him is Kim Jones, the British menswear designer who left Louis Vuitton in January. With stints at Dunhill, Alexander McQueen, and Umbro. the Central Saint Martins graduate is known for his sporty streetwise flair, evident in his own namesake line. He was also the mastermind and brains behind the Louis Vuitton Supreme collaboration. In a statement, Jones said “I am deeply honoured to join the house of Dior, a symbol of the ultimate elegance.” His first collection for Dior Homme will show this Spring/Summer 2019 in June and with his ease at merging the luxury and streetwear worlds together, we’re betting to see him injecting his cool factor to the menswear line.
