He is also the majority stakeholder in global online retailer Asos. "We ask you to respect privacy and we therefore have no further comment".

Holch Povlsen, his wife Anne Holch Povlsen and the couple's four children were in Colombo during the Easter holiday when the suicide bombing occurred.

The blasts targeted St Anthony's Church in Colombo, St Sebastian's Church in the western coastal town of Negombo and another church in the eastern town of Batticaloa as the Easter Sunday mass were in progress. At least 39 of those killed were visitors from countries including Turkey, India, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Some 500 people have been reported injured and, according to media reports, some 24 people have been arrested.

While the representative declined to disclose any further details, Danish media have reported that the family had been vacationing in Sri Lanka.

According to Forbes, Povlsen has a net worth of $7.9 billion. That makes him the 304th richest person in the world.

Sri Lanka was today hit a ninth explosion after a bomb detonated near a church. The chain includes brands like Vero Moda and Jack & Jones. He's been on Zalando's supervisory board since 2013, but as CNN reports, his interests extend beyond and retail.
