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.

"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)
