They say two heads are better than one, and it seems Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy has decided to join forces with J.W. Anderson.
The massive French luxury corporation now owns a minority stake in the London fashion designer’s new business, and they’ve also recruited him as creative director of Loewe.
And it sounds like Anderson is thrilled about the arrangement, as he called LVMH the “Oxford University of luxury goods.”
J.W will take over for Stuart Vevers at Loewe, and WWD reports that Anderson wants to come up with a “new personality” for the brand.
