PARIS — Boucheron, the Paris jewelry house that belongs to French retail and luxury conglomerate PPR, has concluded a deal to open 10 freestanding stores in China over the next five years.
The venture, with Peace Mark Group, one of Hong Kong's leading watch and jewelry firms, also will open at least 20 Boucheron shop-in-shops in the Tourneau network of stores over the same period. Peace Mark last year signed a venture with Tourneau, based in New York, to open 30 watch stores.
"We are absolutely delighted to partner with Peace Mark Group," said Jean-Christophe Bedos, Boucheron chief executive officer. "They are the ideal partner to elevate the brand's success to the next level in China."
Boucheron operates two stores in China, in Hong Kong and in Shanghai. It runs 30 stores around the world, and plans to open seven to eight doors in the next year, Bedos said.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
