The man who has helmed the Louis Vuitton menswear line since 2011, Kim is set to show his last collection for the brand this Thursday at the Paris Men's Fashion Week.

His name is no stranger to most as he is one known to create menswear collection that is coveted by both men and women worldwide and also boldly the one who went to non-standard solutions like creating the Louis Vuitton x Supreme capsule collection, which is a global phenomenon.

The designer will officially be exiting the brand in March 2018.
