Maison Kitsuné has appointed Marcus Clayton to fill its creative designer role left vacant by Yuni Ahn, who departed the business in January 2020.

Clayton, who previously designed for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Fenty, will build on the brand's Tokyo-Parisian concept and strengthen Maison Kitsuné's fashion offerings in his new role.

The British designer is currently working on the French fashion and lifestyle brand's FW22 collection, which will be showcased in January, while Kitsuné's first runway show will be presented during Paris Fashion Week for SS23.

Paris-trained Clayton previously worked with the brand for its guest designer series, producing Kitsuné's SS21 collection.

Maison Kitsuné was founded by Gildas Loaëc, previously the manager for Daft Punk, and architect Masaya Kuroki in 2002. The Parisian fashion brand and music label offers a unique, inspirational Art de Vivre blending its fashion brand (Maison Kitsuné), music label (Kitsuné Musique) and coffee shops (Café Kitsuné). The company recently established an investment arm, Kitsuné Ventures, with Brooklyn-based label Connor McKnight benefiting from its inaugural investment.
