Kim Jones to leave Louis Vuitton

After 7 years at the helm of Louis Vuitton menswear Kim Jones has announced this coming Thursday’s AW18 show will be his last show as Creative Director for the house.  Since being appointed in 2011, Kim Jones has been a trailblazer at Louis Vuitton, transforming the menswear brand with collaborations with British artists Jake and Dinos  Chapman and tie-ins with streetwear brand Supreme.  “It has been a huge privilege to work with Kim,” said Michael Burke, Vuitton’s chairman and chief executive officer, praising the designer’s “ability to set trends” and talent. “All of us who have been fortunate to work with Kim wish him continued success in his next venture.”  Rumours are already abound that Kim replace Christopher Bailey at Burberry following his departure in March, although Kim has yet to produce a womenswear line.
