Spring has its classics that usually accompany us for much of the summer. Concepts are lighter. We focus on pleasure and discovery. Of the culture that has also been mistreated in recent years, but that, however, has helped us maintain a certain balance. Several spring shows have impressive longevity and certainly have a good love rating. Launch of 15 franchises that are transferred to our four generalist channels.

Because nothing is certain. They promise us beautiful turns.
