G-Star RAW opens first shop in Mumbai

Renowned Dutch denim brand, G-Star RAW, has opened its first exclusive store in Mumbai in partnership with luxury label marketer and distributor, Genesis Luxury.

Located on the second level of Palladium, the boutique measures 1200 square feet and is completely remodeled to showcase the brand’s creative spirit and distinct style, Genesis said in a press statement.

G-Star RAW is best known for its ecological take on denim production—often creating styles using Japanese selvedge, unwashed raw denims and organic fabrics that aim to help save the environment.

G-Star RAW is the innovative denim brand, renowned for its focus on denim craftsmanship and its constant innovation. G-Star continues to follow a philosophy of ‘Just the Product’, preferring to practice product engineering rather than design. The brand first revolutionised industry mindsets in 1996 by introducing raw, untreated denim as a wearable and desirable material.

Head designer Pierre Morisset’s conception of the ‘3D Denim’ approach shook-up the industry for a second time in the same year.

‘3D Denim’ is a pioneering method in the construction techniques of jeans. Unlike traditional pattern making, which approaches the garment as a flat object, 3D Denim sculpts to the body’s form, creating a fit of increased precision and comfort, the statement said.

Actuellement, la marque française dispose de 200 magasins répartis dans 55 pays. Les Etats-Unis représentent le premier marché de Vilebrequin avec un rythme de croissance de 15 à 20 pour cent par an. C’est également là-bas qu’elle réalise un tiers de ses ventes mondiales.

Atteindre les 100 millions d’euros en 2017

Pour 2017, le groupe souhaite atteindre un chiffre d’affaires de 100 millions d’euros et pour cela, le groupe a annoncé qu’il renforcerait ses autres lignes de produits –en plus du maillot de bain- qui génèrent 75 pour cent u chiffre d’affaires. Vilebrequin prévoit que d’ici 2017 les maillots de bain pour homme représenteront 50 pour cent des ventes.

L’entreprise a commencé à diversifier son activité avec une première ligne de chaussures, élaborée par Overland. Cette ligne comprend des sandales, tongues, sneakers et autres modèles. Et d’ici quelques années, Vilebrequin pourrait faire son entrée dans le secteur de la mode pour femme.

The Kooples continue son expansion aux Etats-Unis

Objectif: enregistrer 350 millions d’euros d’ici 2018

Jusqu’à présent, la marque fondée par les frères Elicha (fils des fondateurs de Comptoir des Cotonniers) opèrait déjà dans le pays avec des corners en grands magasins comme Saks ou Bloomingdales. Désormais The Kooples choisi de monter ses propres points de vente et prévoie d’atteindre un chiffre d’affaires de 350 millions d’euros d’ici 2018.

L’aventure commençait il y a sept ans pour The Kooples et dès ses début la marque voyait grand et planifiait de se développer à l’international. Malgré ses efforts pour renforcer sa présence sur d’autres marchés, l’Hexagone représente 63 pour cent des ventes globales. The Koople compte un total de 360 magasins en propre répartis dans le monde entier, bien que l’entreprise assure vouloir renforcer son activité de vente au gros.

En 2011, le groupe a lancé The Kooples Sport, qui génère 25 pour cent des ventes et dispose de magasins à Berlin et Londres.
