Hermès and Jean Paul Gaultier officially announced they are parting ways, with Lacoste’s Christophe Lemaire replaces Gaultier at the French luxury house.
After seven years re-shaping Hermès as artistic director, Jean Paul Gaultier, who followed in the footsteps of Martin Margiele, is “to concentrate on his own projects,” a statement said.
He has been replaced by Lacoste’s creative director, the dashing Christophe Lemaire. The move doesn’t come entirely as a surprise, with rumours circulating the Internet last year. The spring/summer 2011 collection will be Gaultier’s last for the prestigious company.
Hermes currently own 45 per cent of Gaultier’s own label, so the ties haven’t all been cut.
“Hermes is deeply grateful to Jean-Paul Gaultier for his outstanding creative contribution during these past seven years,” Hermes said in a statement.
