Gaultier Out At Hermes

May 27, 2010 • Fashion


This could be the start of something good or truly awful… But it is still sad nevertheless. 

After seven years, Jean Paul Gaultier and Hermes are parting ways. The Spring 2011 collection unveiled in October will be their last together. 

"After seven fruitful years of creative partnership, Hermès and Jean-Paul Gaultier artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear, have decided to bring to an end their collaboration allowing Jean-Paul Gaultier to concentrate on his own projects," read the release. "The spring-summer 2011 collection to be revealed in October 2010 will be the last collection created by Jean-Paul Gaultier for Hermès. Hermès is deeply grateful to Jean-Paul Gaultier for his outstanding creative contribution during these seven years.”

Christophe Lemaire, head of the luxury house Lemaire, will be the new artistic director of the women's ready-to-wear line, effective Fall/Winter 2011. Lemaire is also the creative director of Lacoste.
