Luxottica on track with targets and Essilor deal after steady first half

replica-ray-ban

MILAN (Reuters) – Italian eyewear group Luxottica is on track to meet full-year targets and win regulatory approval for its planned merger with France’s Essilor, it said on Monday, after its first-half underlying operating profit came in just ahead of forecasts.

The maker of Ray-Ban replica sunglasses agreed in January to merge with Essilor (ESSI.PA), the world’s biggest lens manufacturer, to create an industry leader with annual sales of more than 15 billion euros (13.82 billion pounds).

Luxottica (LUX.MI) CEO Massimo Vian told Reuters on Monday the merger, which needs to clear antitrust hurdles in several countries, was progressing well.

He also confirmed full-year guidance for a low-to-mid single digit percentage rise in sales at constant currencies and broadly similar operating and net profit growth, excluding one-off items.

“We stick by our outlook … and we do so with a lot of positive energy,” he said.

Luxottica’s sales grew 1.8 percent at constant exchange rates in the first half to 4.92 billion euros, roughly in line with estimates.

Operating profit came in at 899 million euros net of one-off items, ahead of an average estimate of 873 million euros in a Reuters poll of analysts and up 1.9 percent year-on-year at constant currencies. It accounted for 18.3 percent of sales.

An expanding retail network lifted European sales by 15 percent net of currency swings in January-June.

But sales in North America, which account for about 57 percent of the total, fell 1 percent, hurt by Luxottica’s efforts to curb discounts applied to its spectacles both online and at its Sunglass Hut and LensCrafters retail chains.

A streamlining of the group’s distribution network in China aimed at fighting counterfeiting and a parallel market for replica Ray Ban sunglasses drove Asia-Pacific sales down 5.6 percent.

After cutting independent distributors last year to deal directly with retailers, Luxottica decided to focus on direct sales either online or through its Ray Ban shops while keeping only a few selected wholesale clients.

“We became even more convinced that our strategy was right … and we decided to speak directly to consumers,” Vian said.

Following news last week of the departure of another senior manager at Luxottica, Vian said he was firmly committed to the group which he considered “more as a family than as a company.”

Luxottica has been through several management changes since founder and top investor Leonardo Del Vecchio took back the reins of the company around three years ago.

Meet the Most Instagrammable replica Sunglasses of the Summer

What happens when you combine cheeky Lolita-style heart-shaped sunglasses with retro cat-eyes? The most Instagrammable replica sunglasses of the summer. The double tap–worthy eyewear comes courtesy of Takesh, a replica ray ban sunglasses label by Niki Takesh, a DJ-actress-photographer-artist and downtown New York–by–way–of–L.A. cool girl. Already, the head-turning sunnies have been worn by the likes of Victoria’s Secret Angel Martha Hunt, photographer and director Petra Collins, and model Ruby Aldridge.

Takesh first imagined the funky marriage of the two silhouettes three years ago, after she found it difficult to find a perfect pair of either. “The cat-eye ones were really always hard to find, and you’d have to get them vintage. They were either a really weird size or the material was too light,” she says. “I’ve always wanted to remake the vintage-inspired cheap sunglasses that were high-quality and felt really nice. All of the ’50s-style vintage replca sunglasses that I have don’t stay on your face.” The sleek results are priced at $169 and come in black (with the option of rose- or blue-tinted lenses), classic red, and a fresh light blue—all complete with a glitter-coated case.

Knowing that cat-eye and heart-shaped frames can sometimes appear costumey, Takesh added additional features like a Ray-Ban-esque silver decal on the corners. “I wanted there to be a difference between mine and the cheap party costume-store ones,” she says. Her friend, nail artist Madeline Poole, chimes in on the phone to give an impromptu quote: “I was surprised because I really didn’t think this style was going to look good on my face, but they look amazing because they are slenderized so they aren’t those St. Marks glasses,” she says, referring to the East Village street known for punky, inexpensive accessories shops. “The blue lenses make everything crispy and HD outside.”

Takesh plans to expand her offerings in the near future: Along with more color options for the hit hybrid shape, she wants the label to be a way for artists, designers, and her friends to collaborate and dream up their ultimate shades. “People always fantasize about making cheap ray ban sunglasses because it is so hard to find the right ones,” she says. “There is always something you that you want to exist.”

Ray-Ban zonnebrillen van vóór 1998 komen uit de Verenigde Staten. Wanneer er “Made in China” op de brillenpoot staat, weet je dus zeker dat je genept wordt. De merknaam, het serienummer en het land van productie staan bij een originele Ray-Ban altijd aan de binnenkant van de linker brillenpoot.
Ook op de neusbrug staan de naam en het serienummer ray ban replica. Het serienummer moet hetzelfde zijn als op de linker brillenpoot.

ray ban

When it comes to ray ban sunglasses, you’ll struggle to find a label more iconic than Ray-Ban outlet. Worn by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and more recently, Gigi Hadid, the effortlessly cool frames are as sought-after now as they were when the brand arrived on the scene in the 1930’s. Now, the luxury eyewear brand is introducing the third edition of Ray-Ban Reloaded and bringing back the much-loved Meteor style – a favourite with Julia Roberts.

STORY: Take a look at how Julia Roberts and Rihanna wore the same dress in very different ways

A brand that goes hand in hand with celebrity culture, Ray-Ban replica has never been afraid of pushing the boundaries when it comes to both design and social commentary. Reloaded brings past collections back to life for just a few short days, and this time around it’s the Meteor, a satisfyingly wearable take on the classic Wayfarer style with a notable 60’s influence.

Rayban1

When the label launched the Wayfarer frames in 1952, they soon became an instantly recognisable fashion accessory. Audrey Hepburn wore them with a Givenchy dress and a pearl ray ban outlet necklace in the celebrated 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s and legendary bluesman Bob Dylan was rarely seen without a pair on. In recent days, everyone from Michelle Obama to Angelina Jolie have been spotted wearing Ray-Bans. Kate Middleton even stepped out in the brand’s Wayfarer Folding Classic style during the New Zealand leg of the Royal Tour in 2014.

Julia Roberts has rocked the brand’s Caravan cheap ray ban frames and the Aviator Classic pair in the past but it’s the Meteor shape that the leading actress couldn’t get enough of. Just the thing for pairing with roughed-up denim and oversized shirts at the weekend or with sundresses and espadrilles ray ban sunglasses outlet on balmier days, if they’re good enough for Julia, they’re good enough for us.

A very limited quantity of the Ray-Ban replica Meteor will be exclusively available in selected flagship stores and on Ray-Ban.com from April 10th to April 15th 2017.

Buying replica Ray-Bans? Don’t fall for this outlet

Recently, we’ve observed a new wave of scams on Facebook. Crooks are luring social network users to visit bogus Ray-Ban e-shops and buy heavily discounted sunglasses there. Victims’ payment card details are at risk.

The spam ads are spread via hacked cheap ray ban accounts that attackers have taken control of using malware and social engineering tactics. Subsequently, without the owner’s consent, they post pictures promoting fake Ray-Ban sunglasses with discounts as high as 90%.

On top of the possibility of losing few dollars on counterfeit goods, victims’ payment card details are at risk. Also, the transactions run directly on the bogus sites, not via a secure payment portal, allowing the payment card’s details to travel unencrypted across the internet.
Images are also uploaded to the user’s gallery ray ban outlet which is shared with the public. To keep a low profile and avoid suspicion, attackers usually tag only 4 to 6 friends from the friend’s list on each of the fake ads

We have seen these fraudulent websites in different language mutations, but most of them use English. Attackers target users in various countries such as the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, Chile, France, Spain, the United Kingdom and China.
We have also discovered that many of these newly created ray ban replica domains use a similar design. Most of them are situated in China and were registered this year.

After searching for their favorite models, users should realize that something fishy is going on since all of the Ray-Ban sunglasses replica on the scam e-shops offer the same 90% discount.

If the victim misses the red flags and decides to order a pair of the displayed ray ban sunglasses outlet, he/she will be asked to proceed with their credit card payment. However, these fake e-shops are not secure and don’t use an SSL certificate to encrypt communication between client and server. Customer credit card details therefore, are sent to the attacker’s server in plain text and can be misused in the future.

With the high number of similar looking e-shops offering huge discounts, there is also the probability that customers will neither receive the sunglasses replica they ordered, nor get their money back.

Many people tempted to buy these “discounted”cheap ray ban sunglasses are aware of similar scams. Hence, they try to contact the official Ray-Ban Facebook fan page to verify whether the pages they have seen in the ads are genuine or fake. Official brand representatives are working hard to react to all of these inquires and confirm most of the reported Chinese pages as bogus.

The Luxottica name is reflected in a pair of replica sunglasses in this photo illustration taken in Rome February 4, 2016.

Ray Ban replica maker Luxottica confirmed its revenue goal for 2016 after sales growth eased at the start of the year, hit by a drop in tourist numbers and weaker emerging markets currencies.

The Italian company reported on Friday net sales of 2.3 billion euros ($2.6 billion) for the three months through March, up 0.6 percent in adjusted terms from a year earlier and in line with analysts’ average forecast in a Reuters poll.

The adjusted growth rate, which excludes the impact of an accounting change at its EyeMed unit, was 9 percent in the last quarter of 2015.

Sales in January-March rose 1.8 percent excluding currency moves and Chairman Leonardo Del Vecchio confirmed the group’s 2016 goal of a 5-6 percent sales growth at constant currencies.

Chief Executive Massimo Vian said a more volatile economic situation was pushing consumers in the group’s top North American market as well as in China to delay purchases of replica sunglasses uk, while they continued to buy reading glasses.

Luxottica’s sales in Asia Pacific, which accounts for 13 percent of the total, shrank in the first quarter hurt by weakness in Hong Kong.

Vian said Luxottica would shift focus at its 80 shops in Hong Kong to sell more spectacles to locals rather than sunglasses to tourists.

“What everyone thought was a temporary situation in Hong Kong is becoming entrenched,” Vian said in a phone interview. “The attractiveness of Hong Kong as a tourist destination has decreased … we will serve the local market.”

Sales of fake ray ban sunglasses stagnated in North America where a stronger dollar deterred tourists. However Luxottica’s revenues in the region grew thanks to its optical retail network.

Sales also rose in Europe despite fewer tourists traveling to London and Paris.

Luxottica said the comparison with the first quarter of 2015 was particularly tough due to a calendar effect that would be offset in coming quarters. Sales in the same period last year had also been boosted by the launch of Michael Kors’ branded eyewear.

The group, which has lost three CEOs in 17 months and is now headed by 80-year-old Del Vecchio as executive chairman, on Friday appointed Francesco Milleri as deputy chairman.

A consultant of the company and a close aide of Del Vecchio, Milleri joined the board in March with the task of supporting the chairman.
