PARIS — Hermès International said Tuesday that it’s headed for a record year — and prepared to fend off Bernard Arnault’s unwelcome arrival.
“The house is on course for its best performance in at least 10 years,” chief executive officer Patrick Thomas said in a conference call as Hermès registered a 30 percent increase in sales in the third quarter, fueled by strong demand for silk scarves, leather bags and watches, particularly in Asia. “It may even be the best ever, full stop.”
"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)
