In the latest move among fashion designers, Dior Homme has officially announced the exit of Kris Van Assche as creative director and has Kim Jones to take over the helm.

After 11 years at the helm and creating wonders at the helm, Kris Van Assche is exiting Dior Homme and might be reassigned to another brand under the LVMH Group, WWD reports.

On his departure, Kris says, "It is with great emotion that I thank my team, my studio and the ateliers. Their support and their unique talent and savoir-faire have made all my creations possible."

And replacing Kris on the helm is Kim Jones, the former menswear designer of Louis Vuitton.

Joining the Dior Homme family, it has been announced that Kim will debut his first collection for the label in the coming June 2018 Men's Fashion Week.

On his appointment, Kim says, "I am deeply honoured to join the house of Dior, a symbol of the ultimate elegance."

"I would like to warmly thank Bernard Arnault and Pietro Beccari for their trust in giving me this incredible opportunity. I am committed to create a modern and innovative male silhouette built upon the unique legacy of the house."
