As linen and cotton yarns grow in popularity and fine gauge knits become increasingly cheaper to produce it’s about time we rethink the role of sweaters in our summer wardrobes.

Nueve Musas is beyond delighted to report that Christophe Lemaire will be taking the reigns of Hermes’ women’s wear after Jean Paul Gaultier presents his last RTW collection with the esteemed leather house for Spring/Summer 2011. Congratulations to Christophe and best wishes to Jean Paul in the next chapter of his career.

Renzo Rosso’s recent confirmation that not only has Martin Margiela left the company but that he has been absent for some time came as no surprise. Those who have been watching the label over the past several years have seen it wane from one of the premiere fashion think tanks to a confusing enigma in both the awkward catwalk presentations and its heavily merchandised (and manipulated) commercial ranges.
Yet Margiela’s name still stirs and the designer, more so than the Maison, is regarded as one of the greatest of all contemporary talents. His oeuvre stands as the one of most potent and successful efforts to bring fashion forward into the post-modern world. Yet, it’s easy to forget the years between 1998 and 2004 when Margiela was also the women’s design director for one of the most prestigious luxury goods companies – Hermès.
