Gaultier leaves Hermès
After seven years, Jean Paul Gaultier will be leaving French luxury brand, Hermès.
"Hermès is deeply grateful to Jean Paul Gaultier for his outstanding creative contribution during these seven years," the company told WWD.
The house has named Christopher Lemaire, currently the creative director of Lacoste, as his successor. It is unlikely that Lemaire will continue at Lacoste.
Lemaire will take over once Gaultier shows his spring/summer 2011 collection in October.
It is likely that Gaultier will concentrate on his own ready-to-wear and haute couture collections.
It will be interesting to see what Hermès' future collections will look like with Lemaire as its artistic advisor.
What do you think of this change?
