In the new space will offer more than 600 brands, including most of the brands that are owned by the group.


LVMH revenue was 46.8 billion euros in 2018. The French luxury holding, owner of brands like Louis Vuitton or Dior, ended the year with a 10%. Benefit, on the other hand, increased by 18%, to 6.3 billion euros.
