Retail insights: Philip Corne, Louis Vuitton Australia

Philip Corne, Louis Vuitton Australia

This week, we are featuring a video interview with Philip Corne, non-executive director of Louis Vuitton Australia, who Inside Retail editor Dimitri Sotiropoulos spoke with at Inside Retail Live in February.

Short on time? Here are three key takeaways from the interview:

  • Tourism is important for all retailers but it is a risk to build one’s business on a sector that one has no control over.
  • Retail is all about stories and if a retailer has great stories about its brand, then it has great opportunities to engage with its clients.
  • The general retail environment is not easy, but it depends on which side of the market a brand is sitting in. Premium luxury retailing is going strong at the moment.

Watch the interview below.
