We have a few ideas...
Mulberry designer Emma Hill
Emma Hill left Mulberry back in 2013 but is yet to announce a new role. Is this the job she left the Alexa satchels and Bayswater bags for? She certainly knows how to rise to a handbag challenge, that's for sure.
Hot new designer Joseph Altuzarra
Parisian born New York Fashion Week designer Joseph Altuzarra has already been mooted as a name to replace Christophe Lemaire, echoing Balenciaga's hiring of Alexander Wang.
British designer Gareth Pugh
Christophe Lemaire brought a pared back aesthetic to Hermés, but with the accessories sector facing new challenges, could Gareth Pugh bring a fresh lease of life to the brand with his catwalk drama?
Birkin bag collector Victoria Beckham
If anyone knows their way around a Birkin bag, it's Victoria Beckham. Could this be the next step in VB's rise to designer stardom?
Louis Vuitton rival Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs left his post at Louis Vuitton to focus on his own brand, but could he be tempted by LV rivals Hermés? It'd be coup of the decade.
