LORO PIANA JOINS THE LVMH GROUP - Page 2
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.
