LVMH Launches 24 Sevres as Online Luxury Fashion Source [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Paris' 160-year-old Le Bon Marche, the "world's first" department store, which is owned by luxury conglomerate LVMH and sells goods from its multiple brands, is launching an international e-commerce website, 24Sevres.com, named after its street address at 24 rue de Sevres. The website will offer more than 150 luxury labels, including 20 of LVMH's own, such as Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Dior, with "an unparalleled Parisian take on fashion, until now conspicuously absent from the e-commerce landscape." The site, which officially launches June 6, will deliver to more than 75 countries and feature Parisian fashion experts available for video chat. "With the launch of 24 Sèvres, we are offering them a truly differentiated online experience built on our unique expertise at Le Bon Marché in Paris," said Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH. The move is the first cohesive digital initiative for LVMH, whose brands had previously operated their own individual ecommerce experiences.
