William Kim has plenty to smile about this year. He has moved up the Drapers Top 100 list following another strong performance in the year to 28 January. Sales and UK revenue both were up 20% and 11.5% respectively, and its wholesale and franchise operations more than trebled in size.
Kim has previously worked at Gucci, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen, and arrived at AllSaints in 2012, when he was tasked with positioning the brand on an international stage. With new franchises in Turkey, Chile and Peru, as well as new Spanish concessions in department store El Corte Inglés, he is certainly doing that.
