In just a few years, he has built a very distinctive and exciting brand with a unique DNA. I am delighted that Christopher Kane is joining PPR's portfolio of luxury brands and working with us to further develop its business as a global luxury brand. Christopher Kane is already established as a luxury label and has a tremendous intrinsic growth potential.
