In a dramatic start to the week, this morning (19 March) it was announced that Belgian designer Kris Van Assche will be leaving Dior Homme after 11 years.
“It is with great emotion that I thank my team, my studio and the ateliers,” Kris Van Assche commented. “Their support and their unique talent and ‘savoir-faire’ have made all my creations possible.ˮ
Now, WWD has reported that Kim Jones is to follow in Van Assche’s footsteps as artistic director at Dior Homme. “I am deeply honoured to join the house of Dior, a symbol of the ultimate elegance,” the ex-Louis Vuitton designer said. “I am committed to create a modern and innovative male silhouette built upon the unique legacy of the house.”
According to Dior, Van Assche’s future will keep him within the LVMH group after LVMH seized control of Christian Dior Couture in a $13 billion deal back in July 2017.
