Spring/Summer 2011 dug back to Hermès' equestrian heritage, complete with harnesses, and gave us a show worthy of any equestrienne.
The rave, however, has got to be the use of transparent crocodile skin. I can't believe it's possible!
With a collection that celebrates the heritage of Hermès, as well as Gaultier himself, one begins to wonder how Christophe Lemaire will fare taking Gaultier's place. It may just be me, but I don't see the switch from the sporty, preppy label Lacoste to the well-respected, luxury brand Hermès being an easy one. Having said that, Gaultier caused many raised eyebrows when he took over at Hermès, but he's proved to us he has what it takes. I suppose we'll have to wait and see if Lemaire can do the same.
