At the end of 2016, Hugo Boss announced a simplification of its brand portfolio in order to return to profitability. The move meant that casual fashion lines Boss Orange and Boss Green, will be incorporated into the Boss main collection, which will continue to focus on its traditional positioning in the premium range. The company also announced plans to shift its positioning and abandon its endeavours in the luxury segment.
Hugo Boss ended the first quarter of fiscal 2018 with a 3% increase in profit to 50 million euros. Sales, meanwhile, remained stable at 650 million euros. At constant exchange rates, the company grew 5% compared to the same period of 2017.
