PARIS — Jean Paul Gaultier is about to name his third new president in as many years — and she comes from Hermès International, which owns 45 percent of Gaultier, WWD has learned.
According to sources, Veronique Gautier, chairman of Hermès Parfums’ supervisory board and managing director of leather goods, will succeed Christophe Caillaud, who was promoted to the helm of the Paris fashion house in 2006 after six years as its managing director.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
