    JEAN PAUL GAULTIER AT HERMES

    JEAN PAUL GAULTIER is to take over from Martin Margiela as the chief designer at the house of Hermes, it was confirmed this afternoon. The eccentric Frenchman will design the Hermes ready-to-wear line beginning with the autumn/winter 2004 collection. While Margiela is planning to concentrate on his own label once he gives up the responsibility of the Hermes collections, this will be the first time that Gaultier has turned his hand to designing anything other than his own label. The 51-year-old designer has long been associated with the house of Hermes, since it bought a 35 per cent stake in his business in 1999 for approximately $23 million. "The rumours about Jean Paul Gaultier's appointment at Hermes are true," a spokeswoman for the company said today. "We will be sad to see Martin Margiela go, but we are very excited about working with Gaultier." (May 19 2003, PM)

    :huh: I certainly prefer Margiela for Hermes, his last collection was a "poem" but maybe he's been little too much on the intellectual side .. still i know Hermes were having a great commercial success with Margiella :unsure:

    thanks Abril :heart:

    How cool! Hmm I love Margiela but I also love Gaultier. it is nice to see him get to work for anotehr hosue. AlthoughI do prefer Margiela. It is good that he is focusing on his own line. Its intresting though becuas margiela used to work for gaultier.

    Really? I don't really have a good feeling about Gaultier being at Hermès. :unsure: It's weird because I usually love Gaultier. I think he's rather genius. I agree with Lèna, maybe MMM was too intellectually obscure for Hermès, even though he did a fantastic job. IMO, he captured the neoteric elegance of such a brand.

    A few favorite Hermès looks under MMM.

    I am curious to see what he does with the accessories. :woot:

    hermes has different design groups for each department, eg. different designer for womens, shoes, mens , accessories etc.

    I still don't feel good for gaultier there, honestly :(

    Check out M.Margiella's last collection for hermes (f/w 03-04), it was a dream, his best ever for Hermes, maybe they need something more "commercial" though :unsure: :(

    After watching The Fifth Element the other day on HBO (LOVE Bruce Willis!), with costumes designed by Gautier. I'm not sure this look would go over very well at Hermes.

    I'm not a big JPG fan, but I love the current Hermes look, especially the accesories (of course!). I think he'll be able to keep the company's look and not put too much of his own personality into it ( that's why he has his own line). Think of how different Gucci and YSL are and they share Tom Ford.

    Oh my! :eek: How can JPG take over Hermes! :( I know this is old news but Gaultier copies from other people(see 'Major designers copying the little ones' thread) so how can he make his own ideas and avoid obvious cliches at Hermes? :unsure: I want Margiela back! :cry:

    Thats a good point, but Ford is unique. I love all things Hermes and I'm not sure how JPG going to fit in there. Th Hermes clothes are so conservative in comparison to most of JPG. Who knows, maybe he'll change to suit Hermes?
