BRUSH OFF: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton is looking to sell La Brosse et Dupont, maker of beauty and personal care products such as hair brushes and accessories, market sources said, confirming a report in French financial daily Les Echos. The luxury group has mandated corporate finance firm DC Advisory Partners to handle the sale of the firm, which is valued at around 50 million euros, or $62 million at current exchange rates, the newspaper reported on Friday, citing unidentified sources. A spokesman for LVMH said the company does not comment on rumors. As previously reported, LVMH is also mulling a possible sale of its Kenzo fashion house, although Les Echos cited one unidentified source close to the matter as saying this was unlikely to go through.
