Chow Tai Fook Jewellery, and PVH Corp, in that order, took the top spots, with minimal variations from last year’s findings.  LVMH is home to Guerlain, Benefit cosmetics, Givenchy, Fresh cosmetics, Acqua di Parma are a few of the brands under the LVMH umbrella, and of course Louis Vuitton.

Richemont is Cartier, Piaget, Van Cleef and Arpels, Baume Mercier, to name just a few. OK that is an easy one to see why they are in the top

IT Cos, this was a surprise

Lancome, Garnier, L’oreal, Skin Ceuticals, are but a few of the cosmetics owned by L’oreal Luxe, along with the long list above. The next time you purchase a fragrance or any cosmetics you use, check and see who makes it. More than likely it is a L’oreal product.

Chow Tai Fook Jewelry is So in Love, Hearts on Fire, Monologue, and T Mark in addition to their own brand. And they are an official Rolex dealer. Can’t hurt since that is the number one selling luxury watch around the world.

Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Heritage Brands, Izod, Van Heusen, Arrow, Speedo, and Warner’s, They did $3.8 billion in 2018.

So for the $300 billion a year on luxury items, these 10 companies do just about all of it.
