French leather goods brand Longchamp has won a retail space of 95 square metres in the heart of Milan’s famous shopping centre, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The space was previously occupied by Stefanel.
Located at 225 West 57th Street at the base of Central Park Tower, the mega 320,000 square-foot store offers seven levels of retail space and will play host to a series of exclusive releases and collaborations.
The French label owned by Chinese conglomerate Fosun has inked a global licence deal with Marchon for the production of its men’s and women’s eyeglasses and sunglasses. The collections will debut in September 2020.
No one could fault the staging of Longchamp's latest runway show, presented at Lincoln Center this Saturday, but no amount of light-handed styling from Marie-Amélie Sauvé could turn this collection into a hit.
France accounts for over one quarter of the total sales of the top 100 luxury corporations worldwide according to Deloitte’s 2019 report, with 9 groups listed and LVMH, L'Oréal, Kering and Chanel in the top 10.
