PARIS — In a bold move, Hermès International is backing a new brand in China that is set to launch for spring.
The luxury firm has taken a majority stake in a Shanghai-based company, Shang Xia, which will create, manufacture and sell a collection of clothing, accessories, furniture and other lifestyle objects. These are to be made using Chinese raw materials and artisanal know-how, Hermès said.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
