一開始知道這個消息其實我覺得蠻可惜的... 因為Hermès一直是我很喜愛的品牌，從整體品牌概念、視覺表現、服裝剪裁、皮革堅持到香氛氣味，都是我很推崇的商品。而這些好的作品有一部分的功勞都來自於Gaultier大師! 雖然知道每位大師都會有離開的一天，但是就像我當時知道Matthew要離開Pucci 那樣感傷.......(雖然其實跟我沒什麼關係~哈)
IS JEAN PAUL GAULTIER preparing to say goodbye to Hermès, the brand that has supported him since 1999, and that he has helmed since 2003? Reports this morning suggest that the French designer will tender his resignation in the coming weeks - and that his spring/summer collection in Paris this October will be his last for the luxury house.
Gaultier assumed the role in 2003, following the departure of Martin Margiela, and has enjoyed a critically-acclaimed and commercially successful tenure at the label. In July, the company released an exceptionally positive earnings report, announcing a 12 per cent increase in second-quarter sales - with leather goods up 33 per cent and ready-to-wear 12 per cent, The Daily reports.
Hermès's patronage of Gaultier began in 1999, when the brand invested $23 million in the designer's eponymous collection in exchange for a 35 per cent stake. "I believe," Hermès's then-ceo Jean-Louis Dumas told The New York Times at the time, "that Gaultier has the capacity to be what Hermès has become."
Gaultier and Hermès have both thus far declined to comment.
