VF Corp. raised fiscal 2019 guidance on the same day it posted second-quarter results, fueled by gains in its Vans brand.
For the three months ended Sept. 30, net income rose 31.3 percent to $507.1 million, or $1.26 a diluted share, from $386.1 million, or 97 cents, a year ago. On an adjusted basis, EPS from continuing operations rose 19 percent to $1.43. Revenues rose 15.2 percent to $3.91 billion from $3.39 billion. The year-ago comparison excludes contribution from its Nautica business, which the company sold on April 30, 2018, and has since been classified as a discontinued business.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
