Kim Jones Steps Down as Creative Director at Dunhill

Style :

It's been a fantastic two-and-a-half years for luxury brand Dunhill with Kim Jones as Creative Director but news has reach LSoD that he is stepping down from the position.

Christopher Colfer, CEO of Alfred Dunhill said, "Kim has made a valuable contribution to the creative development of Alfred Dunhill over the past 2½ 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 endeavors." 

I am very disappointed and a little sad to hear that Kim is leaving the brand, which he dusted off the old school perception and products, and reinvigorated it with a sense of youth, without compromising on luxury. 

There is no indication of who will replace him, or when exactly he is leaving, but who ever does has some very big shoes to fill. His shows in Paris have been the most sought-after and often most memorable, taking inspiration from the heritage of the brand but giving it an edge that is second to non in my eyes.
