LVMH in China: Cracks Its Empire of Desire? Louis Vuitton, commonly known as LVMH, has experienced huge success in its Chinese market due to the ever-present and ever-popular trend of Chinese consumers seeking luxury status symbols. Counterfeiting and raised awareness of government corruption caused a standstill in the Chinese market until LVMH launched the Shanghai Maison with invitation-only floors, helping to regain the intrigue of the luxury Louis Vuitton image. Read the minicase below and answer the questions that follow. In July 2012, Louis Vuitton, the flagship brand of France’s Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A., better known as LVMH, opened its 16th global Maison at Shanghai’s Plaza 66, a huge luxury mall. The Shanghai Maison would house the entire range of Louis Vuitton collections and multiple contemporary artworks created by Chinese and international artists. The grand opening of the Shanghai Maison also coincided with the 20th anniversary of the brand’s presence in China; Louis Vuitton opened its first store in the country in 1992, in Beijing’s Peninsula Hotel. Indeed, sales in Asia (excluding Japan) accounted for one-third of total revenue by the end of the first quarter of 2015, making Asia LVMH’s largest region in terms of revenues (see Exhibit MC24.1).1 When focusing on countries rather than regions, China is already the world’s biggest luxury market (Exhibit MC24.2), having achieved an average annual growth rate of close to 20 percent from 2007 to 2014. Louis Vuitton loves China; the Chinese love Louis Vuitton too, perhaps even more. In a recent Chinese luxury consumer survey published by the Hurun Research Institute, Louis Vuitton topped the list as the number one and number two preferred luxury brand by Chinese men and women, respectively.
