It has been announced that Artistic Director Kim Jones of LVMH’s Louis Vuitton will be stepping down following Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2018 showing in Paris. Sitting at the helm since 2011, Jones was known for bringing eclectic elements into his men’s collection designs, as he seamlessly incorporated nuances of streetwear from his involvement in the culture. With past projects with Umbro, Nike, fragment design, and the more recent Supreme collection, we’re not entirely sure where the English designer could end up next. There has been some speculation that he will be moving to Burberry or Versace as rumoured last year but stay tuned for updates as they come in.
