While many of us enjoy fashion for its artistry and innovation, taking a look behind the scenes at the business ventures that power the industry can be just as exciting. Recently, VF Corp—owner of brands including Timberland, The North Face, Dickies, and Vans—aquired Supreme for $2.1 billion, a decision that sparked conversation surrounding streetwear and its current standing in mainstream fashion. Tiffany & Co. has also made headlines for its sale to LVMH, which was originally set at $16.2 billion when it was announced in 2019 (poised to be the biggest deal ever in the luxury industry) but was recently finalized for $15.8 billion.
While LVMH and its competing fashion conglomerate Kering are known for owning some of the biggest names in fashion—such as Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and Celine for the former, and Gucci, Balenciaga, and Saint Laurent for the latter—there are a number of labels you may not realize are tied to other companies. If you’re looking to delve further into unexpected fashion business deals, L’OFFICIEL gathers six brands you might not know are owned by other brands.
