A few days ago Hermès announced that Jean Paul Gaultier is leaving his position as creative director of the brand. The spring/summer 2011 collection to be revealed in October 2010 will be the last collection created by Jean-Paul Gaultier for Hermès. The reason Jean Paul Gaultier is leaving is to concentrate on his own projects. Christophe Lemaire the creative director for Lacoste will replace Gaultier starting with the Fall 2011 Hermes collection. Good luck christophe.
