The couple have been dating since at least August 2019, when Alexandre first shared a photo of Paris-based Geraldine on Instagram. 

In the months since, Geraldine has travelled the world with her beau, joining him on trips to Japan, Greece and Italy.

Alexandre made headlines around the world when he was named CEO of Rimowa in 2017 at the age of 24 after he played a crucial role in LVMH’s decision to buy an 80 percent stake in the high-tech luggage maker for 640 million euros ($716 million), its first acquisition in Germany.

Fashion power couple: Alexandre and Geraldine are both forging careers in the industry 

Bernault likes to keep business in the family. His eldest son Antoine, 43, who married Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova last year, is CEO of Berluti, while his daughter Delphine is director and executive vice president of Louis Vuitton. His 26-year-old son Frédéric is CEO of Tag Heuer.

The French billionaire, who has been married twice, also has a younger son, Jean, 23.

Géraldine studied at Central Saint Martins in London before returning to Paris in 2015 to found D’ESTRËE, which creates ‘high-end fashion accessories’, including hats and jewellery. 

Beyoncé is among her celebrity fans and the brand is sold at 100 retailers around the world.  

The Arnault family turned out in force when Antoine married long-term partner Natalia in a low-key civil ceremony in Paris in June. The couple have two sons.
