Corduroy is undeniably having a moment this season so the opening of a Soho, London flagship for the brand that describes itself as “the world's first premium corduroy fashion label for men and women” is good timing.
Luxury may have its ups and downs but Harrods makes money regardless. The Qatar Holding-owned London landmark has turned in an eighth successive year of record profits on the back of eight years of record sales.
The Italian luxury brand achieved a turnover of 1.3 billion euros for the financial year 2016/2017, quadrupling its net profit, which soared from approximately 18 million in 2015 to 80 million a year later.
Following Condé Nast in 2013, Lagardère Active and its brand Elle has entered the training business with their first international programme for development and networking which has been announced for December.
