(NEW YORK) As first reported by The Daily last August, Jean Paul Gaultier is indeed parting ways with Hermès, the brand announced today in a release. “After seven fruitful years of creative partnership, Hermès and Jean-Paul Gaultier artistic director of women’s ready-to-wear, have decided to bring to an end their collaboration allowing Jean-Paul Gaultier to concentrate on his own projects. The spring-summer 2011 collection to be revealed in October 2010 will be the last collection created by Jean-Paul Gaultier for Hermès. Hermès is deeply grateful to Jean-Paul Gaultier for his outstanding creative contribution during these seven years.”
Christophe Lamaire, the creative director of Lacoste, will step in where Gaultier leaves off as the artistic director of Hermès women’s ready-to-wear, starting with the Fall 2011 collection. Ties between Gaultier and the house won’t be permanently cut, however: Hermès remains a 45% shareholder in Gaultier’s eponymous line. Hermès began investing in Gaultier’s house in 1999.
