HERMES GOLDEN BOY CHRISTOPHE LEMAIRE

HERMES
GOLDEN BOY
CHRISTOPHE LEMAIRE
BY MIKE KAGEE

Christophe Lemaire is the new golden boy behind
the Hermes collection....
Lemaire who started with the company last September took over the reigns of the luxury.....
super-brand. For the Autumn/Winter collection
he blurred geography and history with caftans
and kimonos, tunics and cloaks.....
Before coming to Hermes, Lemaire spent ten
years of his life with Lacoste and before that
he was working at Christian Lacroix. 
Lacroix was a bit baroque and very much about
costumes and haute couture where  Hermes is
not like that at all. Hermes is practical and
contemporary. Christophe Lemaire was a student
of the Paris School of Decorative Arts nearly
30years ago.
