Starboard Cruise Services maintained its position as the leading retailer of high-end brands on board cruise ships by expanding its presence in Asia. It further enhanced the appeal of its stores while improving the quality of its product offerings and the experiences it offers its customers. Le Bon Marché continued on its strong growth trajectory during a very eventful year. The refinement, quality of service and selectivity on offer at the iconic department store on Paris Left Bank continued to place it a cut above the rest for its French and international clientele, and its loyalty program was highly successful. The new children s department the renovation of which was completed in the second half of the year introduced Les Récrés du Bon Marché , an ingenious new concept which is the first of its kind among department stores: fun workshops for children of all ages to enjoy while their parents shop in peace. Event highlights included the substantial media coverage of the exhibition of works by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich in the beginning of the year, and the major success of the Los Angeles exhibition in the fall. La Grande Épicerie de Paris Rive Droite, which opened in late 2017, won over a new clientele. The 24 Sèvres digital platform continued its targeted growth, enriching its range with exclusive offerings including a capsule collection in collaboration with designer Inès de la Fressange.
