Communist megalomaniac Kim Jong-il has a taste for luxury, known to consume 20% of North Korea’s budget each year.

But which brands does he like?

Chosun Ilbo learned from a defector he likes Omega watches, Perrier bottled water, Martell Cognag, and imported menthol cigarettes. He wears French silk and scabal, a material “popular with foreign celebrities,” and Italian Moreschi shoes. He also recently bought 160 Mercedes-Benz sedans for top officials.

The defector says Kim Jong-il was impressed when Chinese diplomats knew to his tastes: “During his visit to China in 2005, Kim Jong-il was delighted to see bottles of Perrier that Chinese officials had prepared for him and asked his aides how the Chinese knew he liked Perrier.”

Now what happens when Kim Jong-il resigns? His likely successor is known to prefer Nike and other American brands.

LUXURY CLOTHING and accessories brand Burberry has reported a nice profit increase of 27% in Q1 of this year. Sales in the three months preceding June 30th rose to £291 million from last year’s £229 million.

Strong sales in Asia Pacific in particular pushed their performance above expectations, with retail Burberry’s sales overall up 21%. The brand plans to open up to 30 additional stores, mostly in the US and Asia, over the coming year.

It’s not all plain sailing for the brand, though. Despite strong sales results, the company’s stock fell 0.6% to 789.5 pence yesterday. The company is reportedly bracing itself for an internal battle over the pay level of is chief executive, Angela Ahrendt, the London Evening Standard reports. The company’s annual meeting is being held later this week and Ahrendt’s £6 million pay deal is expected to be questioned by shareholders.
