It is a sad week for Hermes, as creative director of 7 years, Jean-Paul Gaultier leaves. Who will fill Gaultier’s shoes? None other, than former Lacoste director, Christian Lemaire.
Could Lemaire’s association with the Lacoste alligator be the perfect segue to Hermes? After all, they are a brand who favours the exotic and luxurious side of using alligator and crocodile in their products.
It seems the 7 year itch has come around, and we look forward to the first new collection, where all will be revealed.
