The acquisition is LVMH’s biggest since the 2013 purchase of cashmere maker Loro Piana.
Rimowa employs 3,000 people and distributes its products in 65 countries through nearly 150 stores and partners. Rimowa’s ribbed aluminium suitcases, a common sight in airport security lines, are owned by celebrities including Will.i.am and Gwyneth Paltrow. Priced between 300 and 600 euros, these suitcases are especially popular with Chinese buyers who use them to transport luxury goods they buy when traveling abroad.
