For once the fashion rumours are true; Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski will be taking over from Christophe Lemaire as artistic director of Hermès.

The behind-the-scenes designer, who has previously worked for brands such as Céline and The Row, will take over from Lemaire on the 1st October. In a brief statement Vanhee revealed that: “I am delighted to be joining Hermès, a house I so admire and whose values I share wholeheartedly.”

Lemaire will show his final collection for the brand at the upcoming SS15 fashion week in Paris and Vanhee’s debut collection will be revealed in March next year.
