Hermès Welcomes New Designer

As suspected, former Céline and The Row designer Nadège

Vanhee-Cybulski has been installed at the creative helm

of Hermès. The French-born talent succeeds Christophe

Lemaire, who departed the house after four years earlier

this week.

"Her talent and her creative track record will be great

assets in the continued development of women's

ready-to-wear," Axel Dumas, chief executive officer of

Hermès, told WWD. "She will devote herself full-time to

our house."

Lemaire is slated to show his last collection for Hermès

at Paris Fashion Week on October 1 before

Vanhee-Cybulski takes over in earnest. The designer has

also worked under a former Hermès helmer, Martin

Margiela, who designed for the house before Jean Paul

Gaultier took over in 2003.
