LVMH — the parent company of brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior and CÉLINE — announced plans for its Luxury Ventures initiative last year with the aim of acquiring minority stakes in emerging luxury brands. The latest brand to get backing from the programme is New York’s Stadium Goods.

Details on what role LVMH Luxury Ventures will take in the reseller are unclear, although it is rumored that this backing could allow Stadium Goods to expand.

Back in 2017, prior to LVMH’s backing, Stadium Goods raised $4.6 million USD in equity funding and was predicted to gross more than $100 million USD in 2017.
