Gaultier exiting Hermes, Lacoste's Lemaire enters

Gaultier exiting Hermes, Lacoste's Lemaire enters

Jean-Paul Gaultier is leaving high-end fashion house Hermes' womenswear line, and Lacoste designer Christophe Lemaire is taking over as artistic director.
Gauthier will oversee the spring-summer 2011 collection to be revealed in 2010, and Lemaire will take over for the fall-winter 2011 collection.
Hermes says in a statement that it is bringing the collaboration with Gaultier to an end "after seven fruitful years of creative partnership" to allow Gaultier "to concentrate on his own projects."
Much tamer and preppy than his own signature line, Gaultier's collections for Hermes consistently garnered critical acclaim.
Hermes got its start in 1837 as a saddlemaker and its biggest cashcows remain its leather handbags and accessories divisions.
