Hermes Q1 sales driven by Asia, silks

PARIS, April 22 (Reuters) - French luxury goods maker Hermes on Monday posted a 10.3 percent rise in first-quarter sales, pulled by strong demand in Asia particularly for its silks, accessories and ready-to-wear.

Hermes generated revenue of 856.8 million euros ($1.12 billion) in the three months to March 31, up 12.8 percent at constant currencies, slightly ahead of market expectations.
