LONDON - Sales at Compagnie Financiere Richemont SA - parent of brands including Cartier, IWC, and Dunhill - rose 37 percent in the five months to Aug. 31, reflecting double-digit increases in every product category and region, except Japan.
In a trading update, Richemont said the strong growth reflects, in part, the low comparative figures in the corresponding period last year. The sales rise also comprises results from online retailer Net-a-Porter, which Richemont acquired in full in April.

"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)
