Wow such sad news. For me anyway, I love Gaultier's work for Hermes. Now it has been confirmed that spring/summer 2011 (presented this October 2010) will be his last collection. He has only received great appreciation for his work and contribution to the mega fashion house these past seven years, and will continue to have Hermes be a forty five percent share holder in his own personal line. Who will be next to replace the genius? Christophe Lemaire, Creative directior of Lacoste.
