After seven years of heading up French fashion powerhouse Hermès, Jean-Paul Gaultier has announced his departure from the label.
It is said Jean-Paul Gaultier wants to focus on his own line and projects. He is still at the head of his collection for women (Couture and ready-to-wear) and men. On the other hand the designer is going to show his furniture project in June. Jean-Paul Gaultier will show his last collection for Hermès next October in Paris.
His successor will be Christophe Lemaire (main designer for Lacoste).
