One-week box office: "Mysterious Superstar" lost to "Don’t Ask West East", and domestic literary films came in spring.

Last week was the third week of 2018 (1.15-1.21), and the market closed at 1.021 billion, a slight decrease compared with 1.106 billion last week. The weekly box office also dropped from 1.758 billion last week to about 1 billion today. "Previous 3" still has a trace of residual temperature, accounting for 11.3% of the total box office, ranking fourth in the week; "Mysterious Superstar" won the box office championship on Friday with 44 million yuan on the first day, accounting for 170 million box office, accounting for 17.0% of the comprehensive box office; With the word-of-mouth counter-attack, Wu Wen Xi Dong has not been affected at all under the strong siege of new films such as Miracle Boy, Adventure of Bull, Hero’s True Color 2018 and Mystery Nest. The comprehensive box office accounted for 29.1%, and the daily attendance rate was as high as 35.2%. Last Friday and Saturday, eight films at the same time broke 10 million at the box office, which is very rare;
Hollywood’s "Olympic Games", "Miracle Boy" and the cartoon "The Adventure of Bull" both got a high score of 9.3. The Adventure of the Bull only earned 9.1166 million box office on the first day of its release. On the second day of its release, the Adventure of the Bull rose to the third place in the Japanese box office by word of mouth, beating the new films released at the same time, such as Miracle Boy, Mystery Nest and Hero 2018. Natalie portman’s new work "The First Lady", which received great acclaim abroad, only got 654,000 box office on the first day.
Last Friday, amirkhan’s new work "Mysterious Superstar" was released, which won the box office for three days in a row, with a reputation as high as 9.5 points, and the first day’s 44 million yuan was far more than "Wrestling!" Dad scored 14.7 million on the first day when it was released, which is close to half of the box office in India. At present, the box office is still making efforts. From the perspective of word-of-mouth and box office trend, the film is predicted to have a box office of 620 million in the cat’s eye, and it is almost difficult to copy Wrestling! The box office miracle of Dad.
With the mysterious superstar, it is the domestic film "No Ask West East". Under the attack of the new film, "No Ask West East" still maintains its attendance for 10 consecutive days. At present, the film’s box office in the cat’s eye is predicted to be 687 million. Looking at Fanghua, which won a high box office in the early stage, the spring of domestic literary films has officially arrived.
The Hollywood blockbuster Game of the Brave: The Battle of the Jungle, which was released on the same day as No Questions, still maintained a daily score of 10 million. These two films also got the same score of 8.6 in the cat’s eye, while the latter’s popularity gradually faded; Star Wars: The Last Jedi took in 264 million yuan, and the weekly box office was only 11.74 million yuan. I’m afraid it’s far away to break 300 million yuan. In the latest week, Star Wars 8 may quit the China movie "stage".
The phenomenal movie "Ex-3: Goodbye to Ex-3" has remained a little warm for 24 days. Last weekend, it recorded an average of more than 10 million yuan every day, and the attendance rate was as high as 20.0%, surpassing the newly released "Miracle Boy", "Mystery Nest" and "Heroes 2018".

Second aunt looks at fashion: the CEO of Fulang Group is replaced; De Beers’ high-level reshuffle; Levi’s CEO will retire

21st century business herald reporter Gao Jianghong Intern You Yunqian Zhang Yizhen Beijing Report

Last week, many companies experienced major personnel changes. HanesBrands, the parent company of Champion, appointed a new chief marketing officer, and the senior management of Lanvin Group of Fulang Group and De Beers De Beers Group changed.

In terms of financial report, lululemon’s sales rose by 19% in the third quarter and lowered its annual performance guidance. The performance of British luxury watch retailer Watches of Switzerland did not increase in the first half of the fiscal year.

In terms of brand activities, Ralph Lauren will speed up the layout of the China market and open more than 30 stores every year; LVMH Group will sell a majority stake in the cruise retail business; Alibaba’s representative will withdraw from Farfetch’s board of directors; Amazon will drastically cut the fees of cheap clothing sellers; Balenciaga will set foot in the field of high-end jewelry for the first time; Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons will appear in Prada Shanghai exhibition; and PANTONE will announce the representative color of 2024.

1. lululemon’s sales rose by 19% in the third quarter, and its annual performance guidance was lowered.

Recently, Lululemon, a yoga sportswear brand, released its financial report for the third quarter of fiscal year 2023. In the first three quarters, the group’s sales increased by 20% to $6.414 billion. In the third quarter ended October 29th, lululemon’s sales increased by 19% year-on-year to US$ 2.2 billion, including 12% in North America, 49% in international business, 57% in overall gross profit margin and 2.6% in net profit to US$ 249 million.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2023, lululemon expects net revenue to be between $3.135 billion and $3.170 billion, an increase of about 13% to 14%, which is lower than analysts’ expectations. For fiscal year 2023, lululemon expects net revenue to be between $9.549 billion and $9.584 billion, an increase of about 18%.

However, due to the tightening of spending by consumers, lululemon expects sales in the holiday season to be lower than expected. At the same time as the financial report was released, the board of directors of the group approved an additional share repurchase plan of up to $1 billion.

Comments: The revenue guidance in the fourth quarter lags behind Wall Street’s expectations, which is a rare mistake for this retailer whose performance often exceeds investors’ expectations. However, lowering the performance guidance may also be to achieve "unexpected growth", which is their old routine.

2. Ralph Lauren will speed up the layout of the China market and will open more than 30 new stores every year.

Ralph Lauren will accelerate its development in China market in 2024 and realize long-term and sustainable growth and value creation. Cai Xinhui, CEO of the brand’s China market and Southeast Asia, revealed that Ralph Lauren plans to open more than 30 new stores in China every year in the next few years, which will spread to more smaller cities while occupying a place in major cities.

Comments: In the cold winter of the market, mid-range luxury brands are eager to find a new way out. Although Ralph Lauren has been synonymous with the style of "old money" on social media in the past two years, the market has never reached a consensus on whether Ralph Lauren is a luxury brand. It is a foregone conclusion that refined luxury style will return. As a representative brand of this style, Ralph Lauren’s popularity has been rising in recent two years, especially in the China market. In the little red book, there are more than 90,000 notes related to "old money style". Besides fashion, this style has even penetrated into more subdivided fields such as home decoration, wedding and manicure. Continuing to bet on the China market is a promising move for Ralph Lauren.

3. Watches of Switzerland, a British luxury watch retailer, has no growth in the first half of fiscal year.

In the six months to the end of October, the sales of Watches of Switzerland recorded a year-on-year flat record of 761 million pounds, and the adjusted EBITDA fell by 10% to 94 million pounds, and the operating profit plummeted by 16% to 78 million pounds. By region, income in Britain and Europe decreased by 4% to 433 million pounds, while income in the United States increased by 5% to 328 million pounds.

Comments: Earlier, it was reported that the waiting list of Rolex watches was shortening, and the number of people waiting for some watches was shortened from 10,000 to 8,000, partly due to the cooling of global luxury consumption and reduced market demand. On the other hand, the downturn in the cryptocurrency market has further weakened the demand for luxury watches. It is true that the luxury watch market is blocked.

4. LVMH Group sells a majority stake in the cruise retail business.

French luxury goods giant LVMH Group said on December 8th that it has signed an agreement to sell a majority stake in Cruiseline Holdings Co., the parent company of Starboard & On Board Cruise Services, to a group of investors led by Jim Gissy.

Jim Gissy is the executive vice president of Westgate Resorts, a Florida timeshare company. Starboard was founded in 1958 and is headquartered in Miami. By the end of 2022, Starboard had more than 700 duty-free retail outlets selling handbags, jewelry, watches and beauty products on about 82 holiday cruise ships of companies such as Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean and Holland America.

Comments: LVMH will remain an "important minority shareholder" of the new entity despite the sale of equity. LVMH said in a statement: "New investors are strategic partners in the field of holiday retail, with innovative culture and growth philosophy." Who can do it for you? Cruise ships are also an important part of the luxury industry, and the development prospects are still considerable.

5. Levi’s CEO will retire.

Levi’s recently announced that CEO Chip Bergh will retire on April 26th next year, and the current president Michelle Gass plans to succeed him as the new leader of the group on January 29th next year. During Chip Bergh’s 12-year tenure, Levi’s has gradually developed into one of the best clothing companies in the world, promoting brand performance to achieve breakthrough growth.

Comments: Bergh reshaped Levi’s brand image, maintained its brand characteristics in the ever-changing competitive landscape, did not blindly pursue the trend, and paid attention to brand marketing. The great hero is about to retire. At present, consumers are increasingly cautious. The prospect of jeans brands or manufacturers like Levi’s, whose income comes from wholesale channels, is full of uncertainty. Can Levi’s new CEO take on the heavy responsibility?

6. Champion parent company HanesBrands appoints a new chief marketing officer.

HanesBrands, the parent company of American Fashion Champion and the American underwear and sportswear manufacturer, announced the appointment of Richard Mcleod as the vice president and chief marketing officer of Champion. In this position, Richard Mcleod will be responsible for promoting Champion’s global brand strategy and omni-channel brand positioning.

It is reported that before joining Champion, Richard Mcleod worked for Canada Goose, a Canadian down coat brand, and served as senior vice president of Canada Goose, responsible for brand development, growth and performance. Previously, he held senior leadership positions in companies such as Foot Locker, LVMH’s Hennessy, Pernod Ricard and Bacardi, and led the marketing activities of well-known wine and spirits brands such as Grey Goose, Bombay Sapphire and D’usse Cognac.

Comments: HanesBrands Group announced its third-quarter financial report, showing that sales decreased by 9.5% year-on-year to $1.51 billion, gross profit margin was 31.1%, and operating profit plummeted by 53% to $66 million. Can the new coach effectively reduce losses and turn losses into profits?

7. The top management of Lanvin Group of Fulang Group has changed greatly.

LANVin Group (NYSE: Lanv), a global fashion and luxury goods group, announced on December 8 Joann Cheng Yun, chairman and CEO of the group, had submitted his resignation to the board of directors and would start a new business in the future.

The board of directors of the group announced the appointment of director Huang Zhen as the new chairman of the group and Eric Chan as the CEO of the group, effective from December 7.

Fulang Group said that the appointment of Chen Jianhao comes at an important moment for the Group to expand the retail market in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East around the next stage of its brand growth. Huang Zhen said that Chen Jianhao’s rich experience in the fields of real estate and consumption will provide great value for the next stage of the Group’s growth and expansion of global business.

Comments: Fulang Group has now developed into a global fashion luxury group listed on the NYSE, and has maintained a steady growth momentum in the past few years. The two generals have extraordinary strength. Can they continue to write a chapter?

8. Alibaba’s representative withdrew from Farfetch’s board of directors

China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba recently announced that its president and board member, J. Michael Evans, has resigned from Farfetch’s board of directors, with immediate effect. It is understood that J. Michael Evans has been the president of Alibaba Group since August 2015 and joined the board of directors when Alibaba became a shareholder in Farfetch in 2020.

Comments: Previously, Richemont Group, which is also a shareholder, said that it would not undertake any financial obligations to Farfetch and did not intend to provide loans or investments to Farfetch. Ali also made a statement now, and Farfetch’s prospects were not good. Judging from the global situation of consumers returning to offline consumption experience, the reduction of non-essential expenses and the overall slowdown of luxury goods industry this year, Farfetch’s sudden departure seems to be certain.

9. The demand for diamonds is sluggish, and the giant De Beers has reshuffled its top management.

De Beers, the world’s largest diamond supplier, announced on Monday that two senior executives, namely David Prager, executive vice president and chief brand officer, and Ryan Perry, executive vice president of strategy and innovation agency, will remain on the executive committee until a successor is found. David Prager and Ryan Perry will continue to serve on the Executive Committee and oversee the transition of their responsibilities to other members. Tom Johnson is appointed as the general counsel, with effect from January 1, 2024. He will join the Executive Committee and be responsible for supervising the company’s legal and secretariat functions.

Comments: A series of personnel changes are considered as necessary measures for De Beers to cope with the current global diamond industry crisis. According to media reports, the global demand for diamonds has dropped to the lowest level since the epidemic, because global economic challenges continue to affect people’s demand for luxury goods. However, what needs to be more vigilant is the impact of the laboratory cultivation diamond industry on natural diamonds.

10. Amazon slashed the fees of cheap clothing sellers to meet the challenges of Shein and Temu.

Amazon, an American e-commerce giant, is slashing the fees for clothing sellers with prices below $20. The transaction fees for clothing products with prices below $15 will be reduced to 5%, and those for clothing with prices between $15 and $20 will be reduced to 10%, compared with 17% in the past.

Lucas Barnes, a former Amazon executive, said, "This will make Amazon more competitive in the field of low-priced clothing, because a dollar or two can make a big difference."

Comments: Although the company did not explain why it did this, it is widely believed that this shows that Amazon is preparing to fight a price war with China’s cross-border e-commerce companies Shein and Temu.

11. Open up new maps! Balenciaga set foot in the field of high-end jewelry for the first time.

The French luxury brand BALENCIAGA and Jacob & Co cooperated to create the "Diamant" high-end jewelry series, which was unveiled at the fall fashion show in 2024. This is the first time that Balenciaga has set foot in the field of high-end jewelry. It is understood that the series is made of 18-carat white gold and diamonds, including a large and heavy necklace and bracelet, a text theme style called "Typo", including a thin necklace and an oversized two-finger ring, designed to spell the word BALENCIAGA in a handwritten font style, and each diamond is hand-inlaid. Balenciaga x Jacob & Co. series has been exclusively booked on Rodeo Drive immediately after the show, and each model is customized for individuals. The production and delivery cycle is 3 months.

Comments: Since Demna Gvasalia became the new design director of Balenciaga, a lot of popular global fashion products have emerged. With exaggerated design and high price, the new products have a strong topicality, which often explodes the Internet. It is precisely this controversy that makes Balenciaga have a high flow among luxury brands, and it has risen rapidly in the fashion circle, and the products have become a proper out-of-stock king. What new trend will it bring when it comes to high-end jewelry this time?

12. Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons appeared in Prada Shanghai Exhibition.

To celebrate the opening of Pradasphere II exhibition in Shanghai START Star Art Museum, Prada co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, as well as a group of brand executives appeared at the event site. This exhibition is the second appearance after the Pradasphere exhibition was successfully held for the first time in 2014, and will be open to the public free of charge from December 7 to January 21, 2024. The exhibition traces the history of Prada since its founding in 1913, and exhibits more than 400 physical and digital works of art, including the collection of fashion archives and the achievements of cross-border cooperation with art, architecture, culture and sports for decades.

In addition, Prada CEO Gianfranco D’Attis said that the company’s goal is to double its business in China in the medium term. Prada will open more stores, launch more localized products and marketing activities in China market. This means that the corresponding investment will increase, including opening larger stores, launching more localized products and holding more marketing activities. He also revealed that Prada plans to take the hotel concept as part of its globalization strategy and may launch it in 2024-2025.

Comments: After the construction of "Prada Universe" is completed, it is not difficult to see its ambition of further becoming upstream. To achieve this goal, the China market is a key link.

13. PANTONE announces the representative color of 2024.

PANTONE, an international color authority, recently released the representative color of 2024, and named it "Peach Fuzz" after PANTONE 13-1023. This is a comfortable and warm peach color, which just blends the elements of pink and orange, showing a fresh, soft and emotional atmosphere.

Since 2000, PANTONE has made annual color forecasts, which are selected through in-depth trend forecasts and socio-economic conditions, lifestyles and political influences (such as fashion, entertainment and tourist destinations).

Comments: Looking back at the popular colors released by Pan Tong in recent years, Viva Magenta, Very Peri and Illuminating Yellow all represent high saturation. At present, the pressure of life and work is great, and the popular colors turn into softer tones, which seems to correspond to "harmony" and "recovery"”。
