Rewarding our vision of luxury, grounded in powerful creative content and long-lasting stylistic codes, we continue to gain market share, as witnessed by the spectacular performances of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent last year. In 2017, in an uncertain macroeconomic and geopolitical environment, we will keep concentrating on the organic growth of our Houses and on value creation, so as to intensify our current momentum,” said François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Kering.
