Following its recent Jaeger buy, M&S is diving deeper into selling additional fashion brands with news Thursday that it will add Hobbs, Joules, Phase Eight, White Stuff, Jack & Jones, Sloggi and Sosandar to its offer.
Britain's Marks & Spencer said on Thursday it would launch a wave of guest clothing brands on its website this spring, including Hobbs, White Stuff, Joules and Sloggi, in bid to accelerate online growth.
As many luxury brands struggle, we spoke to Sergey Arkhangelskiy, boss of Reality technology start-up Wanna – which is working with the likes of Gucci, Farfetch and Puma – and aiming for a 200% growth rate this year.
M&S has made two major appointments as Fiona Lambert joins to “lead the repositioning of Jaeger as an independent brand within M&S” and Anna Braithwaite works “to drive changing customer perceptions" of the M&S brand.
Marks & Spencer isn’t just upping it’s game in womenswear. The UK retail giant is also turning its attention to expanding character-based kidswear with the introduction of Mr Men and Little Miss clothing this month.
