  + stars: | 2023-12-01 | by ( Nick Kostov | )   time to read: 1 min
HONG KONG—For one night only, this city’s famed promenade along the waterfront was converted into a sandy shoreline. Louis Vuitton, the Parisian luxury powerhouse, staged a glitzy fashion show in Hong Kong Thursday evening, with a front row studded with Chinese celebrities, music by the brand’s menswear creative director Pharrell Williams and models marching along the fabricated seaboard in sailor uniforms and surfer wetsuits. The blowout affair—Louis Vuitton’s first show in Hong Kong—asserted LVMH’s commitment to courting Chinese shoppers and projecting confidence in what is one of the world’s largest markets for luxury goods.

“The great wealth transfer is gaining significant momentum as many billionaire entrepreneurs age,” Benjamin Cavalli, who oversees strategic clients in the global wealth management unit at UBS, told reporters. Their combined wealth rose 9% to $12 trillion, before taking inflation into account. Arnault is the world’s third-richest man, with a net worth of $167 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Risks and opportunity for UBSThe “staggering” transfer of wealth to younger generations presents a huge opportunity for UBS, but also poses considerable risks, according to Cavalli. Heirs lean more toward impact investing — that is, socially or environmentally beneficial investing — over “classic grant-giving philanthropy,” Cavalli said.

Jade Gao/Pool via REUTERS Acquire Licensing RightsBEIJING/PARIS, Nov 24 (Reuters) - French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna is set to meet the Chinese leadership in Beijing on Friday as she seeks to soothe ties after the launch of a European Union anti-subsidy probe backed by Paris into Chinese-made electric vehicles. France is also concerned about Chinese attempts to force French cosmetics companies to share manufacturing secrets with Chinese parties. Xi insisted that China welcomes investment from French firms in a telephone call on Monday with Macron, who urged fair treatment for foreign companies in China. Macron visited China in April with great fanfare, in an attempt to demonstrate France's strategic autonomy from the United States.

Investors looking ahead to 2024 should pick up shares of Hermes , Cartier owner Richemont and Hugo Boss in the luxury goods sector, according to UBS. The Swiss investment bank has a bullish call on those three stocks, though it struck a more cautious tone for the sector. RMS-FR CFR-CH,BOSS-DE YTD line UBS has a price target of 85 euros ($93) a share for Hugo Boss, which points to a 38% upside from the current share price. The Swiss bank also raised its price target for Hermes to 2,216 euros, which is 12% above its current share price. The outlook for the three stocks contrasts with UBS' view that slowing sales momentum and easing pricing power warrant caution on the luxury sector on the whole.

Analysts attended earnings calls in the third quarter armed with questions for healthcare and consumer companies about the potential effect on their sales from the growing popularity of these drugs, known as GLP-1 agonists. A Reuters analysis of earnings transcripts for the third quarter showed "GLP-1" or alternatives like "obesity" or "weight-loss medications" were mentioned 256 times across 29 U.S. and European healthcare and consumer companies. That's more than double the mentions for the second quarter, when those phrases came up 127 times. While some consumer companies have talked about factors such as fewer calories being consumed, "these kind of large extrapolations" seem to be a bit of a stretch, said BMO Capital analyst Evan Seigerman. For big pharma manufacturers like Pfizer (PFE.N) and Amgen (AMGN.O), analyst questions were aimed at their obesity drug candidates.

With fewer shoppers heading to Burberry stores, clinching a sale will be key. The label has filled its stores with new styles across a wider price range, including a renewed emphasis on its staple outerwear. At Burberry he has applied colourful dandelion prints to garments and rolled out advertising campaigns with fuzzy ducklings. "We like what Burberry is doing with product and range architecture, however, the timing is not ideal," said analysts at RBC. Burberry Chief Financial Officer Kate Ferry said the company was "absolutely committed to protecting all of the consumer-facing areas".

REUTERS/Thomas Peter/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsSHANGHAI/PARIS, Nov 17 (Reuters) - The world's biggest luxury brands seeking growth in their second-largest market China are all courting the likes of wealthy entrepreneur Diana Wang. "Luxury brands offer you this event experience, this personal experience and it makes you feel privileged," Wang told Reuters. This week, Burberry (BRBY.L) also flagged low double-digit growth due to a slowdown in luxury spending globally, and in China. FEEDING THE LUXURY HABITEven as they narrow their focus, luxury brands remain optimistic about the potential in China, which is forecast to account for almost 40% of global luxury sales by 2030, according to consultants Bain.

Britain's Burberry hit by slowdown in luxury spending
  + stars: | 2023-11-16 | by ( Paul Sandle | )   time to read: +2 min
LONDON, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Britain's Burberry (BRBY.L) said it was being hit by a global slowdown in luxury spending and it would struggle to meet its annual revenue forecast of low double-digit growth, with a knock-on impact on profit, if it continued. Demand in China, however, fell away in the second quarter from a strong bounce back from the impact of COVID lockdowns. Burberry said spending by Chinese luxury consumers had shifted overseas from mainland China. Tourist growth benefited European destinations, it said, with just over half of spending in the region coming from international visitors. But a weak performance in the Americas worsened in the quarter, with comparable store sales down 10%.

MILAN, Nov 16 (Reuters Breakingviews) - Stuttering consumer confidence is complicating CEO Jonathan Akeroyd’s attempts to revive Burberry (BRBY.L). Like-for-like retail sales in the quarter to end-September grew a dismal 1% at the UK maker of fancy trench coats, below analyst expectations of 4%. But brands attempting a revamp, like Burberry or Kering’s (PRTP.PA) star label Gucci, are likely to suffer more than rivals. Akeroyd sounded confident that new designer Daniel Lee’s first collection, which was launched in shops in September, will energise shoppers. They do not reflect the views of Reuters News, which, under the Trust Principles, is committed to integrity, independence, and freedom from bias.

Richemont's constant currency sales growth eased from a 19% rate in the April to June period to a 5% rate in the following three months. The company posted a profit of 1.51 billion euros, worse than the 2.17 billion euros forecast by analysts in a consensus cited by Zuercher Kantonalbank. "Growth eased in the second quarter as inflationary pressure, slowing economic growth and geopolitical tensions began to affect customer sentiment, compounded by strong comparatives," said Chairman Johann Rupert in a statement. "Consequently, we have seen a broad-based normalisation of market growth expectations across the industry." While jewellery - traditionally more resilient to economic swings - continued to shine with constant currency sales up 9%, watch sales fell 4%.

After three years of record growth, luxury companies are feeling the pain as sales slow to a more normal pace. Nowhere have the struggles of the luxury sector been more prominent than in the French conglomerate LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton , the group's bellwether. This dynamic tends to hurt the less-prestigious luxury brands more, according to Rogerio Fujimori, an analyst at Stifel. "Chinese [consumers] are back to Southeast Asia and Japan, but there's still a long way to go in terms of Europe.

Coach Saves Tapestry From Unraveling

The Coach brand has increased its prices by more than 30% over the past three years. Neither is demand for accessible luxury, but it seems strong enough that brands like Coach are still able to push through price hikes. Coach owner Tapestry , which also owns Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman, reported revenue growth of 0.4% in its quarter ended Sept. 30, weaker than Wall Street expectations of 2% growth. This follows worse-than-expected sales performance at European luxury powerhouses such as Gucci owner Kering and Louis Vuitton owner LVMH . But Tapestry’s adjusted earnings of $0.93 a share was higher than expectations of $0.90.
