After negative economic data from China, a key market for many of the world’s top fashion brands, shares in French luxury goods companies LVMH and Kering (PA: PRTP) plummeted on Monday.

In early trading, Kering was down 1.7 percent, while LVMH was down 1.3 percent. Hermes, a rival French luxury goods brand, also dropped 1.2 percent.
