A fter a year-long search, British fashion designer Kim Jones has been named artistic director of Fendi haute couture, women's ready-to-wear, and fur collections. Jones' appointment fills the void left by Karl Lagerfeld, who held the position for 53 years until his passing in 2019. Jones joins Simona Venturini Fendi, who will continue her work with accessories and menswear. Heralded for his deft touch in blending streetwear with couture, Jones was a menswear designer at Louis Vuitton for seven years prior to joining Dior. His recent collections P erfume is all about personality. In 2006, Tom Ford launched his first fragrance, Black Orchid, and it was a game changer.

For 2020, Tom Ford has launched a new version, this time a parfum rather than an eau de parfum. It retains a similar profile to the original but adds notes of rum and black plum, fusing the earthiness with a m o r e m a s c u l i n e scent. Presented in a gold flacon, the updated Black Orchid is available in 50ml and 100ml versions, as well as travel size. $150 to $195, at the Tom Ford boutique, notes on fAshion By STEVEn HEmPEL Mr. Jones takes on Fendi original scent at Dior received rave reviews and included collaborative efforts with celebrated street and surf designer Shawn Stussy, formerly of the Stüssy brand.
