On Wednesday morning, Fendi announced it had hired Kim Jones — currently creative director of Dior Homme — to replace Karl Lagerfeld, who died last year, as artistic director of haute couture, ready-to-wear and fur collections for women. 

Since Lagerfeld’s passing in 2019, Silvia Venturini Fendi had taken up that mantle, overseeing all of the design for the Italian fashion house founded by her grandparents in 1925. (Before that, she headed up its accessories, menswear and children departments.) According to the New York Times, Jones’s hire is “the culmination of more than than a year of discussions and apparent soul-searching” from LVMH, which owns Fendi. Venturini Fendi will stay on, in charge of accessories and men’s collections.
