There's a rumoured successor for the Hermès throne
Who will the new artistic director of Hermès be?
[Updated 25 July 2014] Hermès has announced that Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski is the new artistic director of women's ready to wear. Nadège will present her first collection in March 2015.
After the announcement of Christophe Lemaire's departure from Hermès, the rumour mills have been going into overdrive speculating about his successor. The biggest lead so far comes from WWD, who have proposed Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski as the most likely candidate and the favourite in the race so far.
Vanhee-Cybulski is currently the design director at The Row, and prior to that she was a senior designer at Céline and Maison Martin Margiela. No word from Hermès themselves yet, but an appointment announcement must be imminent.
