Kering Eyewear plans to take back control
02/09/14, 17:21
After assessing the growth prospects of the Eyewear market and the business potential of its brands in this category, Kering has initiated a strategic move aiming at building in-house eyewear expertise for its Luxury and Sport & Lifestyle brands.

The global eyewear market for frames and sunglasses is significant and growing double-digit in the premium high-end segment.  The 11 Kering brands that are active in the Eyewear category, of which nine are managed through license agreements with five different partners. In order to maximize the extraordinary potential of its brand portfolio, the Group is setting up a new business model through which, together with its brands, Kering will fully control the Eyewear value chain, from design to product development and supply chain, and from branding and marketing to sales.

Kering’s objective is to better support its brands in accelerating their development in the Eyewear category, leveraging on the unique appeal of each of them, in full alignment with each brand’s strategy, positioning and potential. All brands will of course continue to control separately their creative process under the leadership of their respective Creative Director.

The project involves investing in a dedicated entity specialized in luxury, high-end and sport Eyewear managed by a skilled team of experienced professionals under the direction of Roberto Vedovotto, CEO, Kering Eyewear. Roberto Vedovotto and his team will be co-shareholders of this new entity.

Through this project, Kering is putting in place an innovative way of managing its Eyewear operations, which will in turn enable the Group to fully capture the sheer growth potential of its brands in this category. It will also lead to significant value-creation opportunities, notably through the implementation of both revenue and distribution synergies.
The growth drivers will comprise:
- gradual full activation of the brand portfolio in both Luxury and Sport & Lifestyle
- best talents within both the brands and the Kering Eyewear entity for internal design, product development and sales force
- full control over a network of external manufacturing suppliers
- enhanced distribution across all channels with specific focus on Kering brands’ directly operated stores network.

As part of this strategic move, Kering and Safilo have agreed to evolve their 20-year-long partnership.
