LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton is an international group of companies engaged in production and sale of luxury goods. The group is active in a number of global markets including wines and spirits, fashion and leather goods, fragrances and cosmetics, jewelry and selective retailing sectors. LVMH operates about 1,859 stores worldwide. LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton possesses a portfolio of over 60 premium brands such as Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and TAG Heuer, which provide it with a competitive advantage.
LVMH is organised into six divisions, each division functions as an SBU (Strategic Business Unit) with its own General Manager and management team.
Wines and Spirits
Fragrances and Cosmetics
This division manages brands such as Christian Dior, Guerlain, Kenzo, and Givenchy. The company also acquired popular American brands such as Bliss, Hard Candy, Urban Decay, and Fresh that are geared toward a younger audience. Europe holds the largest market for fragrances.
Watches and Jewellery
In watches, the company own prestigious brands that included Tag Heuer, Hublot, and Zenith, and Fred and Chaumet in jewellery. Unlike its other divisions, it is thought that the company has not quite the same kudos with regard to watches and jewellery. Competitors such as Cartier, Hermés, and Bulgari seemed to have more recognisable brands and more upscale products in this category.
The vertical integration strategy of LVMH came to fruition when the selective retailing division was established. This division managed LVMH investments in Sephora, DFS, Le Bon Marché, Samaritaine and Miami Cruiseline Services.
Another facet to the LVMH empire is that of their investment into Groupe Les Echos, the media group offering several business, arts, finance and cultural publications. Another acquisition is that of the Royal Van Lent Shipyard, the Dutch ‘super-yacht’ yard, building luxury yachts with first class facilities.
