The latest designer shift has just dropped and now, we have official news that Kris Van Assche is leaving Dior Homme and will be replaced by Kim Jones, formerly of Louis Vuitton.
After 11 years on the helm of the men’s division at Dior, Kris Van Assche is set to step down from the position and, according to WWD, Kris will still remain within the LVMH Group to take up another assignment.
On his departure, Kris says, “It is with great emotion that I thank my team, my studio and the ateliers. Their support and their unique talent and ‘savoir-faire’ have made all my creations possible.”
And on that note, Dior Homme has also announced Kim Jones as the successor to the creative director seat and set to present his first collection for Dior Homme in June 2018.
