Yesterday the fashion world woke up with a bomb new: the Creative Director of La Maison over four years announced his resignation. We all got the surprise with an aura of sadness and expectancy: we still have to see the latest collection by Christophe Lemaire at Hermès, which will take place in Paris next October, to discover SS 2015 trends.
“Working for Hermès has been a great honor, an experience of professional and personal enrichment,” said the designer. The reason for his departure is clear: “My personal brand is growing and I want to fully dedicate myself to it.”
Meanwhile, Axel Dumas, CEO of Hermès, has spent a few heartfelt words to Lemaire: “I am very grateful to Christophe for the passion with which he approached and enriched Hermès ready-to-wear. Under his artistic direction has renewed the aesthetics of the brand and has given very satisfactory economic results. I wish him great success with his own brand so close to his heart”. Hermès has confirmed that in the coming days will announce the successor of Lemaire. Bets are accepted.
