PARIS — Like the mythical postal carrier inured to challenging weather, Hermès International has yet to be held back by the dark clouds of economic uncertainty.
“We haven’t noticed any erosion of consumer demand,” chief executive officer Patrick Thomas told WWD Thursday as Hermès reported that sales in the second-quarter advanced 21.9 percent, matching its performance in the first three months of the year.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"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)
