MILAN — Lackluster sales in Europe and the U.S. were offset by gains in the rest of the world and helped Aeffe SpA close the first quarter of the year with growth in net profit despite a decrease in revenues.
In the three months ended March 31, the Italian fashion group posted a 6.1 percent rise in net profit, which reached 2 million euros, or $2.6 million, compared with 1.9 million euros, or $2.5 million, in the same period last year.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
