Luxury giant Kering had good news on Thursday, reporting “sharp” annual revenue growth year-on-year and a double-digit rise compared to 2019. Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga all powered ahead.
French luxury group Kering, Richemont's Cartier, and the Responsible Jewellery Council have teamed up to set environmental targets for watches and jewellery activities, challenging the industry to commit to them too.
Kering’s eyewear business has announced a partnership with Chloé. Kering Eyewear will design, produce, and distribute eyewear for Chloé (Richemont), taking over from its previous partner Marchon Group.
At the presentation of the luxury group's annual results, boss François-Henri Pinault said there is no acquisition on the cards at the moment, the priority being ensuring the growth of Kering's own labels.
