KIM JONES TO DESIGN DUNHILL

200px-Dunhill_logo.jpgWe hear from WWD that one of our favorite British designers, known for his eponymous edgy sportswear collection, and his collabo with Umbro,  is joining luxury brand Dunhill as creative director. He will be shutting down his own label, which has been one of our favorites in recent years. "For me, this is a great opportunity to bring home the message I have constantly projected of London as the men's wear capital of the world," Jones told WWD, "Dunhill is perfect as Alfred was a true modernist. It is a privilege to work with an English luxury goods house specializing in men's wear."
