Rumours that arose last year regarding Jean Paul Gaultier‘s future at Hermès were with good reason – the French fashion house has announced today that the designer will be leaving the label as soon as his last ready to wear collection bows next spring.
http://statstuff.com/?help-for-english-essays There’s no hard feelings, though; Gaultier’s leaving comes as he continues to concentrate on his eponymous label, for which the Hermès brand is a shareholder – and the luxury label are keen to wish him well.
follow “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 brand said in a statement today. “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.”
