Louis Vuitton tops BrandZ’s France Top 50 ranking

"In the second annual BrandZ France ranking, released by WPP and Kantar, Louis Vuitton secured the first position ($46.4 billion), Chanel second ($39.2 billion) and Hermès third ($31.5 billion). The total value of BrandZ French Top 50 rose by 12 per cent. While this is significantly ahead of the 2.3 per cent increase in the country's GDP, it is less than the 21 per cent rise in total brand value seen in the BrandZ Global Top 100 Brands earlier this year. One potential reason for the growth lag could be comparatively low perceived innovation score for France's top brands. Taking 100 as the benchmark score for this measure, the Top 50 most valuable French brands average 103 compared to 113 for both the BrandZ Global Top 50 and the US Top 50 rankings."
