LONDON — Swiss luxury group Richemont has responded to a series of racial discrimination accusations by an accountant in its London office, and stressed its commitment to maintaining diversity in the workplace and fostering a “safe and fair” working environment.
Cheryl Spragg, who is black and employed in the company’s accounting department, had filed 35 complaints alleging that she was treated unfairly in the workplace due to her race. Judges at the Central London Employment Tribunal dismissed most of Spragg’s complaints but ruled that Richemont could have been more fair to her.

“Sand, summer, sea,” is how designer Sarah Staudinger describes of the beginnings of her latest collection for Staud, writes @elmercer.
Summer was encapsulated through an array of adorable picnic inspired garb in poppy hues like tablecloth gingham compact knit playsuits and matching sets and plenty of crudite-emblazoned offerings. The best foodie-looks included a salad printed waffle minidress with matching cardigan or a matching neon green knit set with fringe made of mini glass lemons (and matching croakies). #wwdfashion
