Daniel Kearns has been appointed Creative Director of Kent & Curwen, the British sporting brand that is relaunching with David Beckham.
Kearns was previously Artistic Director at Façonnable, the French heritage sportswear firm, and has also worked as Design Director for menswear at Alexander McQueen in London and at Louis Vuitton in Paris. He holds a Masters in Menswear from the Royal College of Art.
At Kent & Curwen, he will be responsible for delivering collections that tap into the growing opportunity for sports-related men’s fashion in China and internationally.

We believe he's a fantastic addition to the team. I look forward to working with him closely to realise our vision for Kent & Curwen."
