LVMH and Burberry both announce double-digit increases in the first quarter. That is, 14 and 19 percent respectively. As for LVMH, the company sites the Richard Prince/Louis Vuitton collaboration, among other things, to have been particularly successful. Too bad LVMH can't celebrate this growth in the face of a recession; their wine and spirits sector fell seven percent this quarter.
