Each week, Just Style’s editors select a deal that illustrates the themes driving change in our sector. The deal may not always be the largest in value, or the highest profile. But we select it because of what it tells us about where the leading companies are focusing their efforts, and why. We pick apart the deal itself, and the industry theme behind it. This new, thematic deal coverage is driven by our underlying Disruptor data, which tracks all major deals, patents, company filings, hiring patterns and social media buzz across our sectors.

The LVMH Nutri Ivo deal 

LVMH Métiers d’Art, which has a presence in the leather, exotic skins and metal sectors, has assumed majority ownership of the Nuti Ivo SpA Group, an Italian company specialising in leather products. The deal was made for an undisclosed sum.

Nuti Ivo has established itself as one of the most prominent leaders in the international tanning industry. The company has long-standing traditions in the manufacturing sector and joins the select group of international companies that are part of LVMH Métiers d’Art.

Why it matters?

Founded in 2015, in order to protect, develop and ensure long-term access to raw materials and artisanal savoir-faire on a global level for luxury players, LVMH Métiers d’Art ensures constant management over the process of creating goods from start to finish, ensuring the sustainability of its supply chain.

GlobalData analyst Louise Deglise-Favre tells Just Style exclusively LVMH Métiers d’Art acquiring a majority stake in Nuti Ivo, a renowned Italian leather manufacturer, fits with its long tradition of using premium Italian leathers for its luxury goods.

She explains: “With this acquisition, LVMH partially vertically integrates a supplier into its value chain, allowing it more control over manufacturing processes. It will also help LVMH expand its production, which will allow it to match the heightened demand it has experienced for its luxury leather goods in the past few years.”
