Only two weeks have passed since Kim Jones joined Dior Homme as Artistic Director, but the former Louis Vuitton designer is already shaking things up at the legendary French fashion house.
Today, Jones announced (on Instagram) the appointment of Yoon Ahn as the brand’s new jewelry designer. Ahn, a Tokyo fashion designer, helped found Japanese experimental jewelry brand Ambush Design with hip-hop musician Verbal back in 2015. She was also nominated for the LVMH Prize in 2017 as one of eight finalists. The brand has attracted a cult-following thanks to their use of large-size gold and silver pieces. Both Ahn and Verbal have previously collaborated with Jones (while at Vuitton) among pursuing other creative projects.
Jones, famous for infusing streetwear influences at Vuitton, will no doubt do the same for Dior Homme; his work with Ahn is sure to bring his new vision to life, reinvigorating the legacy left behind by his predecessor Kris Van Assche.END
