This weekend it was announced that after a two-and-a-half year run as Creative Director at British luxury brand Dunhill, Kim Jones shall soon depart.
In the recent news release Christopher Colfer, C.E.O. at Dunhill said, "Kim has made a valuable contribution to the creative development of Alfred Dunhill over the past two-and-a-half years. His collections have been both commercial and greatly appreciated and therefore we are sorry to see him go but his departure is in line with the original planning and strategy for the brand. We wish him the very best in his future creative endeavours".
Indeed Kim has made a huge impact on the label over the years as he committed himself to creating the very finest men's luxury goods. As he set about designing clothing and accessories that were just as elegant as they were functional; he in turn succeeded in revamping this iconic brand and bringing it to the international stage. With more than 200 stores world wide including London, Shanghai and London, the label is no doubt going from strength to strength. The question now stands however, just who shall be stepping into Kim Jones's very stylish shoes?
