Kim Jones, the new designer for Fendi.
Does anyone still remember Kim Jones? At the start of September, Fendi officially announced that Kim Jones will take over Fendi’s female fashion department as director, and work alongside the Heir, Silvia Venturini Fendi. Many were very curious when the news first announced wondering if he will retract his current position as director for Dior Men. However, news said that Kim Jones will continue at Dior Men as well as working at Fendi simultaneously.
Good news is spreading! On top of him being director for Fendi, Kim Jones was awarded the 2020 CFDA fashion award for Dior Men, with the award being “Menswear Designer of the Year”. Congratulations to Kim Jones! Let’s look back to his creations and his contributions to the fashion industry.
Known as the collaboration king, Kim Jones does great with other collaborators and create one of a kind crossovers, one very notable collaboration is Supreme x Louis Vuitton.
If you follow up on fashion, then you’ve definitely heard of KAWS. Kim Jones collaborated with KAWS, the street artist, and created a whole new image for Dior men. The cheeky and stylish design attracted many young people’s attention!
Another outbreaking collab by Kim Jones was with Rimowa. Making travel suitcases into a whole new fashion level. Who knew suitcases can be trendy?
After looking back at Kim Jones collaborations and creations, aren’t you excited to see what he’s preparing next? In 2021, the upcoming Milan fashion show in February, he will be announcing and showcasing his first autumn winter collection for Fendi. We hope the upcoming fashion show will determine if he can live up to his name of the Collaboration King. What will he be bringing onto the table next?
