JW Anderson hires chief executive

British designer JW Anderson has hired a new chief executive as the brand looks to grow following investment from luxury brand house LVMH.

Simon Whitehouse joined the company in May from Diesel, where he was global sales and brand director of the sub-brand Diesel Black Gold for three years.

Before that he was global commercial director of Matthew Williamson for two years.

It follows investment from LVMH, which snapped up a minority stake in the designer in September last year.

LVMH, which owns brands such as Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, has also appointed Anderson as creative director for its luxury accessories label Loewe. He succeeds Stuart Vevers, who is joining Coach.

The label’s mainline collection has more than 130 stockists and will be sold through a dedicated ecommerce site from June 16, according to the Business of Fashion.
