Global Chief Financial Officer Philippe Blondiaux said: “Chanel delivered another strong financial performance in 2023, with double-digit growth across all categories. Sales increased in each of our markets as retail teams continued to nourish relationships with our local clients, while also embracing the continued return of tourist travel around the world.

“After three years of exceptional growth for our industry, we are now entering a more challenging environment. Against that backdrop, and following a record level of investment last year, Chanel will continue to increase investment in the year ahead, whether in our brand, our craftsmanship and savoir faire, in the continued elevation of our client experience, in real estate, or in our boutique and distribution network.”
