PARIS — The global economic crisis couldn’t help but pervade the recent edition of Premiere Classe at Jardin des Tuileries here, although many exhibitors, particularly from the high-end jewelry sector, said they were weathering the storm just fine.
Buyers at the show, which ended its four-day run Oct. 6, said they still looked to accessories to fan business, counting on statement pieces to differentiate assortments and stimulate foot traffic in stores.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
