Print, Digital Opps: LVMH sells struggling Donna Karan brand to G-III Apparel

Subject: Print, digital

Company: Donna Karan International

Opportunity: Luxury goods conglomerate, LVMH, recently agreed to sell Donna Karan International to G-III Apparel Group for the bargain basement price of $650 million, after the French luxury-goods maker failed to turn around the label that once defined workplace attire for women. In fact, this sale is a direct reflection of LVMH's inability to generate profitable growth from the brand, so it decided that the best way to solve the problem was to eliminate it completely. Keep in mind, that similar to new leadership, being acquired is usually a pretty big indicator for an agency change, especially if the acquired company has been struggling. Currently, DKNY's media is being handled by Havas, however, the agency works directly with LVMH, so once G-III finalizes ownership, Havas will likely be off the account.

Therefore, agencies with experience working with female fashion brands should begin reaching out to decision makers immediately. Focus your pitch on new ways to boost brand awareness and high ROI head of household female engagement. Additionally, sellers should be on the lookout for print and digital revenue to become available. Although print has historically taken up most of the brand's marketing budget, expect a slight decrease as digital begins to take priority. 

Additional Insight 

Media Spend: According to Kantar Media, DKNY spent $2.2 million on measured media in Q1 of 2016, and spent $10.3 million for all of 2015. The largest portion of that spending went to print, while the rest was divided among digital display and search. 

Digital Breakdown: Since January, Moat reports that DKNY has run 11 standard display and 24 high impact ads on nine publishers (<1% mobile). Of these, 99% were placed site direct versus programmatic. Ad destinations include:,,,,,,, and Looking at the same period last year, the company ran eight standard display and 63 high impact ads on 132 publishers (<1% mobile; 70% site direct). 

For all of 2015, the company ran 13 standard display and 65 high impact ads on 316 publishers (<1% mobile; 53% site direct).
