LVMH: Thélios signs agreement to acquire Barton Perreira

Thélios, the LVMH Group’s eyewear division, has signed an agreement to acquire the American independent brand Barton Perreira, a household name in Hollywood.


In the closed circle of star eyewear manufacturers are Oliver Peoples (EssilorLuxottica), Linda Farrow, Cutler & Gross, Larry Sands, Thierry Lasry… and Barton Perreira.


On Sunday, AFP confirmed the Wall Street Journal’s rumored takeover of Barton Perreira by Thélios.
