The highlights of the quarter were as follows:

  • The Wines and Spirits business group recorded stagnant revenue at constant structure and exchange rates as a result of the continued destocking by distributors in China. Champagne performed well, showing solid volume growth;
  • The Fashion and Leather Goods business group grew despite the very high comparable period in 2014 particularly in Japan, with Louis Vuitton recording an excellent start to the year;
  • Parfums Christian Dior continued to see good momentum thanks to the ongoing success of its iconic perfumes J'adore and Miss Dior and the excellent performance of the make-up segment;
  • Bvlgari continued to deliver good growth driven by the success of its collections;
  • TAG Heuer continued to refocus on its core offering and announced a partnership with Google and Intel to launch a smartwatch;
  • DFS continued to face a complex situation in Asia and has been impacted by currency and geopolitical developments in certain tourist destinations;
  • Sephora had a remarkable performance and continued to gain market share in all regions.
