Kim Jones steps down as Alfred Dunhill creative chief

Alfred Dunhill creative director Kim Jones is leaving the men’s luxury goods brand after two and a half years in the role.

The designer says he is planning to publish two books and will announce further projects shortly. There are currently no plans to appoint a replacement.

Alfred Dunhill chief executive, Christopher Colfer, said Jones had made a “valuable contribution” to the development of the brand. H e added: “His collections have been both commercial and greatly appreciated and therefore we are sorry to see him go but his departure is in line with the original planning and strategy for the brand. “

Jones, who abandoned his eponymous label to take on the role at Dunhill in 2008, was bought in to revamp the Richemont-owned brand to appeal to a young customer and help grow international sales.

Alfred Dunhill has more than 200 stores across the world, including London, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
