Newsflash: Kris Van Assche Exits Dior Homme

Kris Van Assche exits Dior Homme after 11 years at the creative helm. Kim Jones, who had just left Louis Vuitton, will be named as his successor, and will present his first collection for the Maison in June this year.

I thank Kris Van Assche for contributing to the amazing growth of Dior Homme by creating an elegant and contemporary silhouette for men. He wrote an important chapter in the history of Dior Homme and played a key role in its development – Pietro Beccari, Chairman and CEO fo Christian Dior Couture

The designer also thanked Bernard Arnault, Sidney Toledano, and Serge Brunschwig for their support throughout his tenure.

Don’t be disappointed just yet, though, because,

Kris Van Assche will contienue to express his talent and creativity within the LVMH Group. His next assignment will be announced at a later stage” – Dior rep

Hm, do you think that Jones and Van Assche will be doing a switcheroo?
