LVMH is continuing to develop its partnership with luxury brands: the luxury conglomerate announced today that it has acquired a minority stake in high-end jewellery brand Repossi.
 
The house currently has stores in Paris and Monaco, as well as being stocked in 90 stores across the world, but this investment will give Repossi the opportunities it needs to expand further. “I am very pleased to have the LVMH group’s support and unparalleled experience in the world of high quality crafted products. Its support will be important for us to pursue our strategy and develop our distribution network,” Gaia Repossi, Artistic and Creative Director of Repossi, commented in an official statement.
 
Since its inception, the house has been a family run business. The house was founded in 1920 in the Italian city of Turin. Alberto Repossi, grandson of the founder, became Creative Director in 1974 and took the house to an international level during his tenure.
Having been immersed in jewellery throughout her childhood, followed by studies at the Beaux Arts in Paris, his daughter Gaia Repossi followed in his footsteps: she was appointed Creative Director of Repossi in 2007, when she was still only 21 years old. Her 2010 collaboration with Alexander Wang and the hugely popular Berbere collection are just some of the projects she has created since taking on the role.
The result of talks between Gaia Repossi and LVMH’s Delphine Arnault, this new partnership with international luxury goods group marks the next chapter in the Repossi house’s history.
 
This is not the first time that LVMH has invested in high-end jewellery: LVMH counts a number of luxury jewelers in its portfolio, including Chaumet, Bulgari and De Beers.
