Jay-Z initially spoke to Alexandre Arnault, the son of LVMH’s Chief Executive, Bernard Arnault, where the foundations of this strategic collaboration were being materialised.
“It is a partnership that has felt familiar the entire time,” JAY-Z’s announcement continued.
“We are confident that the sheer power of the Moët Hennessy global distribution framework, its unparalleled portfolio strength and its long-established track record of excellence in developing luxury brands will give Armand de Brignac the commercial power it needs to grow and flourish even further.”
