In an interview with WWD, Hugo Boss CEO Claus-Dietrich Lahrs unveils the company's five-year plan and hints at a possible return to Fifth Avenue. Hugo Boss once occupied prime real estate on the corner of Fifth and 56th Street in the space now occupied by the colossal Giorgio Armani. Along with outposts in Soho and Columbus Circle, Hugo Boss most recently opened a well-received concept store in the Meatpacking District in 2008. Lahrs tells WWD that "Fifth Avenue could be interesting again if the right opportunity comes up". [WWD subscription req'd, previously]
