French luxury giant LVMH – Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton – Thursday said it bought fashion house Arnys, which makes clothes and accessories for men.
Arnys has been led by the Grimbert family since 1933 and most recently by Jean and Michel Grimbert, the third generation of the family to run and own the business.
This acquisition reflects Berluti’s strategy under Antoine Arnault to expand the activities of the celebrated shoe maker with the brand’s first men’s high end ready-to-wear collection.
Alessandro Sartori, Artistic Director and creator of the Fall/Winter 2012 collection will lead the brand’s made-to-measure activities.
Jean Grimbert will oversee the continuation of Arnys’ expertise and the boutique at 14, rue de Sevres in Paris, will become the flagship store for Berluti’s new activities.
This boutique will be one of the only places in France where it will be possible to order an entirely made-to-measure suit.
