The world-renowned German luxury fashion house – Hugo Boss posted #Q3 2020 earnings that hint to a slight rebound from the #pandemic.

Compared to last year’s #revenue figures, Hugo Boss reported a 24% decline.

In the US, #sales dropped 41%, reaching €73 million. Although the decrease is significant, is half of the one reported during Q2 2020 – 82%. At the same time, in China, sales were down 14%, the figures coming in at €76 million.

At a European level, sales fell 21% to €369 million.
