LORO PIANA JOINS THE LVMH GROUP - Page 2

post #16 of 24
I really like Loro Piana - although can rarely afford it - and hope they don't ruin the brand. But as Malford pointed out, Kerring has yet to ruin Brioni and Arnault has demonstrated his business acumen (making Loro Piana a vulgar logo brand would probably not be a good move) so i remain hopeful.

LOL at everyone complaining............I guess you won't be regular customers anymore?

I don't know a ton about LP beyond owning a few suits made of their fabric.  Will the sale effect the sale of their fabric to different suit makers, or will it mostly effect clothing they sell?

I'd take a wait and see attitude. Until I see some evidence of decline resulting from the merger, which in any event will take awhile to consummate, I'd still get an odd jacket or two made out of Loro Piana fabric. Plus it's not like this is some niche under the radar brand which provides great value; it's already a well known luxury brand and I'd be surprised to see prices move too much higher.

That makes sense.  Also, shouldn't there be somewhat of a market check, since (I presume) most of their fabric is purchased by other clothing makers, and not individual consumers?

Loro Piana is one of my go-to brands for summery stuff: great polos, lovely brightly coloured linen shirts, summery cotton/linen trousers and occasionally jackets. I don't suspect the quality will suffer by the acquisition, and can't bring myself to care whether they introduce a few more overtly branded products alongside their more typical lines... but I do fear that the already sky-high prices will become astronomical. confused.gif

I didn't like when Prada bought Church's and I don't like when french buy our italian companies

I'm a fan of LP, particularly their winter goods. I was in the Madison Ave. store a few days ago drooling over their goods as I selected my next winter coat. They are all about fabric, and as long as that doesn't change, then I'll continue to be a happy customer.

I love Loro Piana though to be honest never really thought that the price is justified. They have beautiful knitwear but 7k for a pullover always seemed over the top unless I had just sold off more of the russian reserves I had come by illegally. Anyway I´m not sure about the LVMH thing as I don´t really like their MO but they certainly have done good things at Berluti. I just get the feeling that LVMH is getting to be a behemoth with subsidiaries in the same way hugo boss has offshoot labels. Are they the VW of the fashion world, possibly, but I thinks thats what in the long term will make individuality and small manufactures more interesting in the future.
