Hermes International’s revenue more than doubled, surpassing pre-pandemic levels, as the Birkin handbag maker kept luring shoppers to splurge on dresses and fashion.

Revenue rose 127% at constant exchange rates in the second quarter, beating analysts’ estimates, and was 33% higher than in the same period in 2019, Hermes said Friday. Leather goods and ready-to-wear contributed to the strong performance.
