There are big things in store for former Lacoste creative director Christophe Lemaire now that he’s replacing Jean-Paul Gaultier as the head at Hermès. (Lemaire’s first collection, that of fall 2011, will debut next March. At Lacoste, a replacement should be named by year’s end.)
Meanwhile, he’s still plugging away with his own label. For fall 2010, he’s infused a burnt orange into the usually muted palette of dark blues, browns, and grey/black. And the pieces are considerably more wearable than those from his two previous collections.
