NET REVENUES*

High desirability for Prada and thriving momentum for Miu Miu

Prada continues to exhibit high brand desirability, following the well-received FW24 Men’s and Women’s fashion shows. The introduction of Leather Goods novelties, such as the Buckle Bag, further enriched the category alongside the ongoing reinterpretation of icons. The focus on Prada Re-Nylon collection throughout the quarter reiterated the brand’s commitment to sustainability.

Miu Miu’s momentum remained very positive, with the highly acclaimed FW24 fashion show driving brand desirability further. Leather Goods continued to be received very positively by clients, with both new lines (Ivy and Softy) and icons (Arcadie and Wander) performing well, also supported by dedicated campaigns. The brand’s collaborations with Church’s and New Balance contributed to give further dynamism to Miu Miu’s identity. Consolidated event formats kept elevating the dialogue with the Miu Miu community worldwide.
