German fashion house Hugo Boss on Thursday reaffirmed its 2003 earnings view despite sluggish sales but said its women's fashions division would again post a loss. The Marzotto-owned company, which recently posted a 30 per cent plunge in 2002 profit to $80.5 million, said it still expects its annual profit to rise 10 per cent year-on-year until 2005 although sales will be flat this year.
