Sorry Louis Vuitton, China No Longer Into You

Arnault, 38, will join LVMHs largest brand in September from Christian Dior Couture, where she has been deputy managing director since 2008, the Paris-based luxury goods maker said today in a statement. The executives knowledge of high-quality products and her experience at Dior are key assets to contribute to the successful development of Louis Vuitton, Michael Burke, chairman and chief executive officer of the handbag maker, said in a statement. Vuitton is raising prices, using more leather as well as fewer logos in its product mix and limiting store expansion to regain its luster as sales growth slows from Barcelona to Beijing. LVMH, the worlds largest luxury goods maker, in April posted its weakest fashion and leather goods sales growth since 2009. Vuitton, which accounted for about half of LVMHs 5.9 billion euros ($7.7 billion) in earnings before interest and taxes in 2012, needs fixing, said Luca Solca, an analyst at Exane BNP Paribas. I can hardly imagine a more important job within the group than to be overseeing this process. It can be a coming of age assignment. The shares gained as much as 2.5 percent in Paris trading and were up 2.1 percent to 121.7 euros as of 4:33 p.m. To contact the reporter on this story: Andrew Roberts in Paris at aroberts36@bloomberg.net To contact the editor responsible for this story: Celeste Perri at cperri@bloomberg.net Facebook

Its firmly in the No. 2 spot. David Sadigh, Founder & CEO of Digital Luxury Group,said Louis Vuittons weak first quarter had a lot to do with China being over-sold the brand. Brands from different segments ranging from Chanel to Coach or Burberry are continuing to grow. The Chinese market is still developing. In order to stay ahead of the game, brands must have the ability to adapt (and) reduce the risk of brand saturation.

Welcome To Poland’s First Louis Vuitton Store: “Open Your Bag Please”

Ask women. Many would prefer the bag, he answers. A buyer often behaves irrationally, so there is no way to tell who will buy what in the Warsaw store, explains Eggs. “I visited our shop in the south of Italy once. There was a young boy, at most 16 years old, who came to buy a leather belt for his mother. The few hundred euros he paid were mostly in change he had been saving the money for two years. When you witness that kind of situation you understand that the age, the education or the income arent the most important factors for our brand, he says. The label is strong enough to have a very simple sale strategy: no sales, no discounts and no outlets. Products are available only in the Luis Vuitton stores. Though I could swear I saw a Luis Vuitton shop in the British luxury brands outlet in Bicester Village, near Oxford.

Chanel In China Is Most Sought-After Fashion Brand, According To World Luxury Index

The latest Roman Empire to fall is Louis Vuitton , left in the dust by Chanel . According to the World Luxury Index, Chanel is now the most sought-after brand in China. Previously, Louis Vuitton had held the top slot, but Digital Luxury Group, the company that conducted the market research, claims that Chanel’s edge in the lucrative beauty industry pushed it ahead. (Louis Vuitton currently has no stake in beauty.) It’s no wonder Chanel is all the rage in China. Aside from hawking some pretty covetable bags and perfumes, the fashion house has been a model for many of its competitors with its emphasis on exclusivity , especially when it comes to China. After the company opened stores in Shanghai last year, Chanel’s president of fashion, Bruno Pavlovsky, told CNN: “We try to get the best three boutiques in Shanghai instead of having 10 boutiques.” Are you listening, Louis Vuitton? Perhaps you just need to launch a fragrance and play a little hard to get so that you can get back into China’s good graces.
