Christophe Lemaire Replaces Jean-Paul Gaultier as Creative Director of Hermes

Christophe Lemaire, the man behind the commercial resurgence of Lacoste, is headed to Hermes. It was announced today that Lemarie will be replacing Jean-Paul Gaultier, who has been at Hermes for seven years and is reportedly leaving to focus on his namesake lines. Gaultier will stay on at Hermes until the Spring 2011 runway show in Paris this October, and Hermes will continue to own a 45% stake in Gaultier's fashion house.

News of Gaultier's departure comes two weeks after the death of Jean-Louis Dumas, former president and chief executive of Hermes, who hired Gaultier in 2003 to jump-start the the company's ready-to-wear business. “Hermes is deeply grateful to Jean-Paul Gaultier for his outstanding creative contribution,” the company said today in a statement.

Christophe Lemaire, who will show his first Hermes collection for the Fall 2011 season, launched his own brand in 1991 and has worked in the houses of Christian Lacroix, Jean Patou, Yves Saint Laurent, and Thierry Mugler.
