Getting in on the Valentine’s Day celebrations, Kim Jones took to Instagram to announce that he will be reissuing select pieces from his Kim Jones brand that has been defunct for some 10 years now.
Kim Jones last showed at New York fashion week in February 2007, soon after which he joined Alfred Dunhill as creative director before moving onto Louis Vuitton in 2011. Since then, his eponymous brand has been dormant. The announcement comes after news that Jones is leaving Louis Vuitton — his last collection for the French house being shown last month.
Pictured in Kim Jones’ post is a denim jacket with pink embroidery of the designer’s name and the phrase “Edge of the Looking Glass.”
All pieces will be produced by GU Japan, who simultaneously announced the partnership through a series of Instagram posts. GU is owned by the same parent company as Uniqlo.
According to Jones, the collection will be available in select countries for a limited time. With more information bound to follow, stay tuned for updates.
