NEW KNIGHTS: Guillaume de Seynes, managing director of Hermès International, and photographer Dominique Issermann were each named Knight of the Legion of Honor, France’s highest civilian distinction, on Bastille Day.

Earlier this year from the fashion and beauty industries, Virginie Morgon, chief executive officer of Paris-based investment firm Eurazeo was also named a Knight, as were Camille Fournet’s Jean-Luc Déchery and Vog’s Franck François.
