Hermes Plans India Store-from Wall St. Journal

  1. Hermes Plans India Store

    Hermes doesn’t believe in being an early starter. It didn’t open its first store in China until 1998, six years after rival Louis Vuitton dived into the emerging market.

    Now, Hermes is planning its first store in India – and again is on the tail end of luxury brands opening stores there. The French brand will open its boutique in New Delhi next year, Hermes Chief Executive Patrick Thomas said in an interview Thursday.
