Menswear designer Kim Jones is leaving Louis Vuitton, according to a new report by WWD

Jones, who has headed up menswear at the French luxury brand since 2011, will stage his final runway show for Louis Vuitton — the Fall 2018 collection — on Thursday in Paris. He is widely credited with making Louis Vuitton one of the top menswear brands in the worls, spearheading the blockbuster Supreme collaboration in 2017. His own, since-shuttered line earned him the British menswear designer of the year award in 2006; Jones has also collaborated with streetwear brands like Nike.

There is no word where Jones could be headed next, though rumors are swirling that he is being considered for roles at both Versace and Burberry.
