Other companies in the top 10 include Orange, Total, Axa, BNP Paribas and Renault. Sephora ranks 11th.

“Clothing (including fashion and luxury) is the biggest contributor to the Brand Finance 150 2021 ranking (16 percent),” the company said in a statement. “However, this sector fell 12 percent year-on-year mainly due to the pandemic.”

Distribution was the second largest contributor to the list, with 10 percent, then cosmetics, with 8 percent.

“For some French companies with strong brands, the brand asset has acted as a shock absorber and reduced risks during the pandemic. However, in many sectors, this was not enough and in order to gain competitiveness again, these economic agents will have to reinvest in their brand assets to take advantage of the recovery,” Bertrand Chovet, managing director of Brand Finance France, said in a statement.

The strongest value brand growth on-year came from Celine, up 105 percent; Kenzo, with a 63 percent increase, and Yves Rocher, with a 61 percent gain.

The new entrants in the annual ranking included Moncler, which placed 47th.

Among the luxury and premium brands, Louis Vuitton recorded a 15 percent drop in brand value to 12.64 billion euros, according to Brand Finance. Louis Vuitton’s “brand strength,” reflecting a brand’s competitiveness, decreased from an AAA rating last year to an AAA- rating, with a score of 84, due to the decline in its financial performance and financial outlook in 2020.
