Louis Vuitton just lost one of its best and brightest

First Phoebe, now Kim. In a move that follows Phoebe Philo's end-of-an-era exit from Céline in December, Louis Vuitton men's artistic director Kim Jones has just announced his departure from the French luxury house. In a post announced by Business of Fashion  just now, the British-born designer and Central Saint Martins alum will showcase his last collection for LV this Thursday at the A/W '18 shows.

"It has been a huge privilege to work with Kim," Michael Burke, Louis Vuitton's chairman and chief executive officer told WWD, noting Jones' "ability to set trends" during his tenure at the brand. "All of us who have been fortunate to work with Kim wish him continued success in his next venture," he added.

Jones has been designing for LV's menswear sector since 2011 and, if the rumours are true, could possibly be heading to either Versace or even Burberry, in lieu of Christopher Bailey's exit last year. But with Phoebe Philo floating around too, we can only guess at what will happen next.
