Louis Vuitton continues to build its designer stable with the announcement that Ambush designer Yoon Ahn will take on the roll of Dior Homme jewelry designer.
The announcement was made by Dior Homme creative director Kim Jones, who joined the label in March 2018. He previously held the role men’s creative director at Louis Vuitton.
“I am very grateful to Kim Jones for giving me the opportunity, and super excited be a part of the amazing team in this new chapter of Dior Homme,” said the Tokyo-based Ahn in a press statement.
Ahn and Jones first became acquainted in 2012 when Jones was with Louis Vuitton. Ambush collaborated with the label on an MP3 player. Jones will show his first Dior Homme collection in Paris in June in a presentation that will include Ahn’s designs.
Ahn was born in Seattle, Washington, and founded Ambush with her husband, Verbal aka Young-Kee Yu, in 2007.
