BEIJING — Shang Xia, the Chinese brand established by French fashion house Hermès International, has completed its first expansion with the opening of a boutique here.
“I am very proud. What I see here is a dream come true, and to tell the truth, it is beyond my expectations,” a beaming Patrick Thomas, chief executive officer of Hermès, said Monday, following an opening for media that featured former French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin and France’s ambassador to China, Sylvie Bermann, along with two young Kunqu opera singers in elaborate makeup.
"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)
