I'd say there's alot about JPG we don't know
Whoa. This is quite the surprise. Is it from a reliable Twitter?
we had the same "rumor" last year, and it went nowhere..so I wouldn't believe it until I hear it from a reputable source (style, WWD, etc)...Who's Derick Chett anyways?
^wow, this company is really valuable.
I hope jp gaultier will have more time for his own haute couture, since it's been bad the last seasons...
Just heard the news. Loved his work for Hermès.
Hmmm...I'm sorry to see him leave. I loved his work at Hermes.
Disappointed, also, to read that the new Hermes pret-a-porter will probably be more commercially slanted. Ugh.
OMG, what a tragedy! I can't believe yet, I love what Gaultier did at Hermés...
Lemaire as new Creative Director. Oh well, I don't know whether to laugh of cry. There hasn't been a calm season for a long while, every season something changes.
So sad. I loved his work at Hermes, even sometimes more than his work at his own label. Christophe's work at Lacoste is alright for me so I'm a little skeptical as to what he'll do at Lacoste.
Gaultier produced some pretty fantastic collections for Hermes, I loved his vision for the house, but he started getting all tacky near the end. In particular the Cowboy collection he did (SS09?). That was terrible.
Indeed. I'm particularly still swooning over the Spring/Summer tennis collection. Ugh, it was so understated glam yet sophisticated.
Hum .. this makes me nervous ... I so do not want JPG to follow the steps of Lacroix ... and how's this Lacoste guy anyway?
im soooooo upset his last collection was gorgeous and
I love the F/W 08 collection so much
Me too, F/W 08 was fabulous! It's really sad because he gave Hermès a lot of identity, they were a perfect match. I must recognize I didn't like his last collections though.
What a pity, first Valentino, later Lacroix, Nina Ricci, McQueen and now Hermès... I still can't believe it, if things carry on like this in a couple of years fashion will be ruled by a bunch of dull designers: Lemaire, Giannini, Copping, Deacon, Zanini, Wang, Chiuri and Piccioli...
WTF - CHRISTOPHE LEMAIRE at Hermès! OMG
I definitely agree. The tennis collection took a while to like but it's so beautiful with its subtle class and timelessness.
i'm saddened to see gaultier go, but it suddenly makes sense why he had his bottom line fattened up by target collections and the like. hopefully, the severing of this relationship won't spell an end to jean-paul gaultier as we know it.
in the meantime, i can't help but think that hermes is rolling the dice with this guy given that lacoste is sort of a self-running machine. most people would buy lacoste polos -- i know i certainly would -- no matter who found themselves at the helm. they're staple items for those with the means to buy it. i haven't really seen much vision from him during his tenure at lacoste quite frankly.
