PARIS — Bernard Arnault is adding more young blood, not to mention some of his own, to the board of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

An LVMH spokesman confirmed Tuesday that Arnault's son, Antoine Arnault, would be asked to join the board. His appointment will be made formal by election at the luxury giant's annual meeting May 11. Antoine Arnault, 27, recently rejoined Louis Vuitton after completing his studies at top business school INSEAD. His next mission in the company is still being defined; he already has logged two years in Vuitton's marketing and advertising department.

The young Arnault will join his sister, Delphine, on the LVMH board, to which she was elected in 2003. She is in charge of leather goods at Christian Dior and also sits on the board of the Spanish leather goods house Loewe, which is owned by LVMH.
