LVMH has reportedly held exploratory discussions with Ralph Lauren about acquiring the brand, according to sources.

Sources told Axios about the possibility, reporting that LVMH has developed more interest in acquiring the American brand after its purchase of jewellery brand Tiffany.

If this deal were to go through, it would represent one of the largest apparel acquisition deals of all time and cement LVMH’s position in the U.S..

Sources also claim that brand founder Ralph Lauren, who has been at the helm of the company since he launched it in 1967 and is currently Chief Creative Officer and Executive Chairman, is considering options for his succession plan.
