LVMH continues to shake up the men’s fashion landscape with the announcement of Kris Van Assche now helming artistic director duties for Berluti. The former Dior Homme frontman succeeds the house’s previous creative director Haider Ackermann, who made news last week with the report of his own departure.

Van Assche recently exited the Dior family — his previous home of 11 years — and will now oversee the luxury label’s ready-to-wear collections, accessories, shoes and leather goods.

When asked to comment on the new appointment, chief executive of Berluti, Antoine Arnault had this to say:

“I am delighted to welcome Kris Van Assche to Berluti.”

“I have known him for several years, have always admired his work at Dior Homme and I am looking forward to working with him.”

Kris Van Assche also commented on his new role saying:

“I have always wanted to build bridges between the savoir-faire, the heritage of a house and my clear-cut contemporary vision.”

“Antoine Arnault spoke to me of his ambitions for Berluti and it is with great pleasure that I accept this new challenge, which fits perfectly with my own will and vision. I would also like to thank Bernard Arnault for his renewed confidence.”

Van Assche will show his first Berluti collection during Paris Men’s Fashion Week in January 2019. What are your thoughts on Berluti’s newest acquisition? In case you missed it, here’s what fashion insiders think of Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton.
