Louis Vuitton tops 2013 global luxury brand list

HSBC calculated that Louis Vuitton’s operating margin fell to 42 percent from 44 percent between 2011 and 2012. RELIEF Sales growth at LVMH’s fashion and leather goods division, of which Louis Vuitton makes up 75 percent of sales, doubled in the second quarter to 6 percent from 3 percent in the previous three months on a like-for-like basis. “It is a relief that there is an improvement in the second quarter and that the margin (at LV) stopped deteriorating,” said Zurich-based Andrea Gerst, who helps run the Julius Baer Luxury Brands fund with 417 million euros ($551.92 million)under management. Referring to Louis Vuitton’s performance regionally, Guiony said trading in Asia was “flattish,” in the United States “in the mid-single digits” while in Japan and Europe, it was “a bit higher or a bit lower than double digit.” Guiony added that the bulk of Chinese demand today was from tourists and estimated overall Chinese demand for the brand to be in “mid-single digits” terms. Analysts estimate that growth in the global luxury goods industry will slow down to around 6-8 percent in 2012, or about twice the level of global GDP growth depending on estimates, compared with 10 percent growth last year. Luxury investors and analysts said they expected trading to continue to improve in the second half of the year, partly thanks to the return of Chinese customers, the world’s biggest buyers of luxury goods. “We expect a slow but steady recovery of Chinese luxury demand because of the underlying appetite for luxury and wealth creation continuing,” Gerst said.

More Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci were the top three global luxury brands of 2013, with Fendi and Coach entering the top 10 for the first time, a study said Wednesday. The 2013 BrandZ Top 100, a ranking of the most valuable global brands compiled by research firm MillwardBrown, found luxury firms struggling with the need to balance exclusivity with attracting new customers through use of social media. “On Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and other social media platforms, brands across the luxury spectrum mediated the tension between the exclusivity that protects brand desirability and the inclusivity needed to attract new customers,” it said. The survey said luxury brands had become more “accessible, collaborative and experimental”. After a modest purchase, for example, a firm might send a thank you note on twitter while a couture fashion customer might receive an invitation to an exclusive show. Handbag firm Coach owed its position at number 10 on the list to its presence in China where it added 30 stores by the end of 2012, taking its total there to 69.
