Louis Vuitton Hires Tiffany’s Francesca Amfitheatrof as Artistic Director of Watches and Jewelry
Former Tiffany & Co-head jewellery designer, Francesca Amfitheatrof, has been appointed Artistic Director of jewellery and watches at Louis Vuitton. Amfitheatrof departed Tiffany in January after being substituted by Reed Krakoff as a primary artistic officer. Tiffany has commended their former employee for her contributions to the jewelry giant. Given that Amfitheatrof is behind the Return to Tiffany and Hardwear collections we’re fairly excited to see what she’ll bring about one of the most historical fashion houses. Amfitheatrof announced the news saying, “It’s with great enthusiasm that I combine Louis Vuitton, a home I feel profoundly connected to through its worth of travel and craftsmanship.”
