LVMH could strengthen its control of eyewear production.

LVMH plans to acquire a stake in Italy-based eyewear producer Marcolin, Reuters reports.

The stake could amount to as much as 10 percent, according to the news service, which cited a source close to the matter.

Reuters quoted the source saying, “LVMH, like other luxury groups, has decided to strengthen its control over eyewear production and is working on a production agreement with Marcolin.”

LVMH is a Paris-based luxury goods conglomerate. Marcolin is held by PAI partners, a private equity group.
