Kim Jones to exit Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2018 presentation in Paris, which is scheduled for this Thursday, will be Kim Jones’ final with the brand. According to WWD, the men’s artistic director will be exiting the company following Thursday’s show. Since 2011, Jones has been a trend setter at LV who wasn’t afraid to take risks. He started at Louis Vuitton in 2011.

The exit seems amicable. Michael Burke, Vuitton’s chairman and chief executive officer reportedly wished the designer “continued success in his next venture,” with the brand describing Jones as “the driving force behind some of the Maison’s most successful projects and collaborations.”
