PARIS — Bernard Arnault is making an investment in the fledgling business of Maxime Simoens, a 27-year-old French wunderkind who had recently been courted by Christian Dior, industry sources said.
It’s a rare move for the French business titan, who has slowed the pace of his luxury acquisitions and recently favored global heritage brands, evidenced by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s $6 billion deal last year to buy Roman jeweler Bulgari.
