PARIS —For the first time in his tenure as L’Oréal chief executive officer, Jean-Paul Agon reviewed the company’s full-year turnout, for 2006, and outlined its vision that continues to stretch both far and wide.
In a meeting at company headquarters in the Paris suburb of Clichy, Agon — who became ceo in late April 2006 — and L’Oréal’s divisional managers discussed key topics for the firm.
Among them, 2006 was a year of some firsts. Last year marked the first time L’Oreal’s skin care (including sun care) category rang up the most business in the company. On a geographic basis, it was a banner year for L’Oreal in emerging markets, since its sales in the “rest of the world” zone overtook North America’s.

I’m proud of the line because it’s an accurate representation of me rather than me putting on someone else’s clothes,” says @atlantabean of her swimwear collaboration with @piaarrobio, LPA X ATL. The two decided on a swimwear collab and increased the industry standard size for the pieces. Read more about the line — and our interview with de Cadenet Taylor and Arrobio — on WWD.com #wwdfashion
