The latest victim of the ever busy rumour mill is designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
Apparently JPG is set to resign from his post as creative designer for Hermès after six years on the job despite the fact that the luxury label has enjoyed increased profitability and received recession proof status while JPG has been at the helm.
Hermès is restructuring and JPG, whose final collection for the luxury label will stalk down the runway this Fall in Paris, will be their first step towards the new vision of Hermès.
According to the rumour mill his last collection will be presented in Paris this October.
Update: The Hermès spokesperson has struck down that rumour. Jean Pail Gaultier isn’t going anywhere.
