LVMH raises stake in Tod’s

Luxury conglomerate LVMH is raising its stake in Tod’s to 10 percent. In a statement, Tod’s said that LVMH would buy a 6.8 percent stake from Tod’s founder and chairman Diego Della Valle. LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault already owned a 3.2 percent stake in Tod’s.

“Through this transaction, the 20-year friendship between the Arnault and Della Valle families is reinforced”, Tod’s said in a statement.

Diego Della Valle is already a member of LVMH’s board of directors, having joined in 2002. The increased stake LVMH is taking in Tod’s is seen as a bit of a bailout. Tod’s was hit harder than some of its competitors from the COVID-19 lockdowns. The company is also having a harder time rebounding than some of its competitors, and they are currently in their fifth year of falling sales.

Tod’s has been working on better positioning itself to attract younger consumers. Social media influencer Chiara Ferragni joined Tod’s board earlier this month and is expected to help the brand better position itself with millennials.

Share’s in Tod’s jumped over 16 percent after LVMH agreed to up its stake to 10 percent. Analysts are speculating that LVMH could raise its stake further as the luxury conglomerate works on expanding its portfolio, although they are currently focused on their multibillion dollar acquisition of Tiffany & Co.

Sportswear label Fila has unveiled a collaboration with birdwatching initiative Flock Together in the form of an apparel and footwear capsule, to be exclusively sold through LN-CC.

In a range of hike-wear gear made for urban exploring, the collection intends to bring people into nature and engage with their community. The selection includes a reinvented version of the Fila Trailblazer hiking shoe and two shearling fleece designs.

The colourways of the line are inspired by the Kingfisher bird, with a scannable near field communication (NFC) tag present in the hiking shoe that takes buyers to a dedicated page outlining the best places in the UK to spot a Kingfisher.

15 percent of all sales of the collection will go towards the Flock Together community fund.

Buying and creative director at LN-CC, Reece Crisp, expressed his enthusiasm over the collaboration in a release, stating: “We’re super excited for LN-CC to be part of this project.

“Flock Together encompasses everything that’s great about community and wellness, two driving forces that are integral to LN-CC too.

“Flock Together’s growth has been both a reaction to, and antidote from, a difficult eighteen months by bringing people together and encouraging outdoor consciousness, so we are honoured to share our platform in amplifying its much-needed positivity while working with Fila in creating this tribute to the Kingfisher.”

Flock Together, founded back in the 2020 covid-19 lockdowns, brings BIPOC together to engage in birdwatching and other nature-oriented activities.

It has previously partnered on an event with Timberland, hosting a range of spoken word presentations at the nature reserve, Woodbury Wetlands. Sponsored by the apparel label, the event aimed to promote the voices in its growing community adjacent to guiding guests through the nature reserve.
