An official cause of death has yet to be revealed, but it was widely known that Dumas suffered from Parkinson’s disease.
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)
