Don’t worry, we’ve summarised the full details for you here , but basically Hermes has accused Louis Vuitton’s parent company of illegally trying to amass a majority stake in its shareholdings. As the case continued to play out in a French court this week, Hermes reportedly accused LVMH of committing the “most important fraud in the history of the French stock market.” It’s a heavy claim and Hermes representatives have shown no sign of wavering under the power of their words, but despite the severity of the accusations, LVMH is still claiming total innocence. In fact, a spokesperson has gone so far as to tell French newspapers that Hermes’ claims should be dismissed entirely, and considered a part of a wider slander campaign. Eeish. You can’t get more of an ‘it wasn’t me’ than that. What do you think?

Along with younger brother Antoine, who is currently chief executive of luxury Italian shoe maker Berluti, Bernard Arnault’s eldest daughter Delphine has been groomed since her teens to take senior roles within LVMH. A graduate of prestigious French business school EDHEC and the London School of Economics, she first learned the ropes of the family-controlled business as a teenage sales girl at a Dior boutique. She now sits on the LVMH board. In her role at Dior, Arnault was credited for bringing creative director Raf Simons on board last year after the departure of John Galliano. Simons’ modern take on heritage Dior designs has since met with critical and commercial success, propelling sales and demand for couture clothes. In December, Christian Dior Couture reported sales for the half-year to October 31 up 18 percent at 632 million euros ($840 million) and said margins had improved. Delphine Arnault’s father is chairman, chief executive and controlling shareholder of LVMH and the wealthiest man in France, controlling 60 luxury brands and a business that spans fashion, perfume, wine and watches. Bernard Arnault caused an uproar in France when he sought Belgian citizenship last September – a move he said was meant to protect a foundation designed to control his family’s holdings in LVMH if he dies, not to dodge new wealth taxes.

The trunk maker owned by Paris-based LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA (MC) lifted prices on bags such as the Speedy and NeverFull by about 10 percent in the euro region, Antoine Belge , an HSBC analyst, said today in a note to clients. Vuitton raised prices by at least 10 percent in the U.K. and U.S., and by 5 percent to 10 percent in Asian markets including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, the analyst wrote. The euros strength against some currencies may lead LVMH to charge more, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bernard Arnault said Jan. 31. Vuittons price increase in Japan, the biggest ever by the brand in the country, was taken to offset the impact of the yens slide on sales, the company said Feb. 20. In addition to protecting margins, the price increases must be seen, in our view, as a means to accelerate LVs repositioning towards more leather, Belge wrote.
