The Swiss group founded by Johann Rupert is certainly a leader in driving hard luxury brands to long term success.
Its formula has created some of the most prestigious companies in the world such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Jaeger-LeCoultre among others.
It’s the group based on hard work, sharp vision and effective business performance. The head quarter in Geneva is surrounded by amazing parks and designed by Jean Nouvel.
But Richemont is also the group that saw well before any other the opportunity coming from the high-end e-commerce.
It acquired Net-à-Porter majority stake in 2010 and then it tookover the Yoox-NAP group in 2018 keeping the e-commerce genius and YOOX founder Federico Marchetti in 2018.
We can clearly say that this is the group with the greatest bold vision in the luxury industry
Now, along with the acquisition of beautiful Buccellati jewelry brand, the groups has decided to push further the development of its fashion division thanks to:
– a new CEO at Chloé, Riccardo Bellini (a very experienced top executive, coming from Margiela)
– a new brand with Alber Elbaz, the most romantic and beloved by women creative director
Slowly but steady is the mantra of this group.
And it seems to work perfectly with it.
