Boohoo’s snake-embroidered trainers are £420 cheaper than Gucci’s originals

We’re not just talking snake print, though brands are stocking enough of it. Instead, we’re talking about a green and red patterned snake that’s being embellished on various clothing from various brands.
Recently, Boohoo released a pair of white, snake-adorned trainers which feature the little green and red snake with some snake-print additions.

The trainers are very stylish, and are proving to be a hit with fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. fanatics – and they hold a seriously strong likeness to Gucci’s own embroidered snake trainers, which also come in white and feature the exact same pattern – though they’ve ditched the snake print for some extra green and red embellishments.
While they’re both pretty similar, the price difference between their pair is staggering – with Gucci’s costing £450 and Boohoo’s retailing at just £20.
Of course, as always, Gucci’s version is a little fancier – as they are made from real leather, while Boohoo’s are made using PU materials. Gucci’s also feature its own iconic branding, just to add to the designer feel.

But quite frankly, when you’re making a saving of £430, designer goes totally out the window – and hey, even if the quality’s not great, at least you can buy enough pairs of the trainers to last you a lifetime without even coming close to Gucci’s price-tag.

FLOWER POWER Boohoo is selling these floral sneakers for £18… and they cost £467 less than an almost identical Gucci pair

BOOHOO is selling floral embroidered trainers that will fit in perfectly with your autumnal wardrobeA wardrobe is a standing closet used for storing clothes. Many people[who?] argue that wardrobes are different in use and style of closets, but they were created by the French to be used as a closet. The earliest wardrobe was a chest, and it was not until some degree of luxury was attained in regal palaces and the castles of powerful nobles that separate accommodation was provided for the apparel of the great. The name of wardrobe was then given to a room in which the wall-space was filled with closets and lockers, the drawer being a comparatively modern invention[citation needed]. From these cupboards and lockers the modern wardrobe, with its hanging spaces, sliding shelves and drawers, evolved slowly..

The eye-catching sneakers retail for a reasonable £18, despite the fact that they look VERY similar to a designer pair.

The high-street retailer is flogging the Charlotte Floral Embroidered Trainer in a versatile white shade.

They are adorned with a pretty pink and green design, which spans the entire length of the shoe.

Even though the shoes have a budget-friendly price-tag, they’re very similar to a clothing item by Gucci.

Both sneakers have a similar silhouette with added detailing on the arch.

While the Boohoo pair are made from PU, the luxury brand is selling real leather shoes.

The Gucci shoes also have a red and green stripe on them and slightly more floral patterning.

Apple iPhone Owners Drive Hondas and Shop at H&M

A new study has found that iPhone owners prefer to drive a Honda—and aren’t nearly as fond of Levi’s Jeans as their Android counterparts.
Although there are several similarities between iPhone and Android device owners, Apple’s customers are more than 2.3% more likely to drive a Honda (HMC, +0.34%) than Android device owners, a new study from analytics company Cambridge Analytica has found. That might not seem like much, but it’s by far the biggest car brandA brand (or marque for car model) is a name, term, design, symbol or other feature that distinguishes one seller’s product from those of others.[2] Brands are used in business, marketing, and advertising. Initially, livestock branding was adopted to differentiate one person’s cattle from another’s by means of a distinctive symbol burned into the animal’s skin with a hot branding iron. difference between Android and iPhone owners. BMW came in the second spot, with 1.8% more iPhone owners preferring that brand than Android owners. According to the report, Android users are more likely to drive Dodge, Chrysler, and Hyundai vehicles.
The study, which includes data Cambridge Analytica collected from a database of 220 million Americans, also found that iPhone owners have a substantially stronger preference for the Swedish clothing brand H&M than Android device owners. Apple’s (AAPL, -1.73%) iPhone owners are also more likely to have visited Forever 21, Nike (NKE, +0.41%), and Nordstorm Rack retail outlets than Android device owners over the last six months. Only Levi’s was able to attract more Android customers than iPhone owners in the last six months, according to Cambridge Analytica.

H&M Kicks Off Climate Week In New York

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — On Monday September 18th, Daniel Kulle, President of H&M North America rang the bell at NASDAQ in New York City to officially kick off Climate Week. Climate change and global warming is a serious issue for the planet and for all of us living on it. It’s a key challenge to all industries, including fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers., which is why H&M has decided to address this challenge with a ground-breaking commitment; to become climate positive by 2040.

H&M will create a climate positive value chain by reducing the energy need across operations and ensuring that the energy comes from renewable and sustainable sources. The group will also support actions helping the planet to resist and recover from climate change as well as innovations making it possible to absorb greenhouse gases. H&M’s goal is not only to reduce the negative climate impact their business has, but to create a positive one. This means they will reduce more greenhouse gases than their value chain emits.

“We want to use our size and scale to lead the change towards circular and renewable fashion while making our company even more fair and equal. This is why we have developed a new strategy aiming to take our sustainability work to the next level,” says Anna Gedda, Head of Sustainability at the H&M group. “We want to lead by example, pave the way and try new things –when it comes to both the environmental and social side – to ultimately make fashion sustainable and sustainability fashionable. Our climate positive strategy is one way of doing this,” she adds.

Fashion chain H&M to open at Poole’s Dolphin Shopping Centre

FASHION chain H&M has revealed it is to open in Poole’s Dolphin Shopping Centre – but won’t say in which unit.

The Swedish-based retailer announced that it would be taking on a 2,700 square metre unit in the centre, with work to begin in February 2018.

But it declined to say which site it had signed a lease on.

The centre has a selection of empty shop units, including the key site occupied by BHS until the company’s collapse last year.

Carlos Duarte, H&M’s country manager for UK and Ireland, said: “We are excited to begin work on a brand new store at the Dolphin Shopping Centre in 2018. This location is a fantastic opportunity for the H&M brand to expand its portfolio and introduce our fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. offering to new customers.”

H&M already has stores at Castlepoint and on Bournemouth’s Commercial Road.

It was founded in Sweden in 1947 and opened its first UK store in 1976. Today, it has more than 260 stores in the UK and Ireland.

Customers at the Dolphin centre yesterday welcomed the news that H&M was being added to its line-up of shops.

Sue Jacobsen, from Poole, said: “It will be great to have an H&M in the centre.

“They sell a lot of stuff I like and I’ll always pop into the one in Bournemouth.

“Hopefully this will mean more people coming to Poole.”

Shopper Charlotte Sawyer said: “The Dolphin Centre has lost a couple of outlets recently, and people are still going on about the loss of McDonald’s and Burger King in the town centre. I look forward to H&M opening.”

The Dolphin Shopping Centre has also declined to say which unit will be occupied by H&M. It plans to release the news as part of a wider announcement in the coming weeks.

In June, the Dolphin centre announced a £26million overhaul which it hoped would lead to more shops and restaurants signing up.

An 18-month improvement programme by owner Legal & General is due to run until the end of 2018.

Can Poland’s answer to Topshop make it on Oxford Street?

It’s that time of year when thousands of fashion buyers, press and “digital influencers” decamp to London to take in the catwalk shows that will shape what we wear come spring.

On Wednesday, the Polish brand Reserved put on a show of its own, hiring Kate Moss to draw the fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. crowd to its debut store on London’s Oxford Street, where 120 million shoppers pass by each year.

Billed as Poland’s answer to Topshop, the retailer is ploughing an initial £50m into breaking the UK market, paying a high price for the cavernous former BHS department store it believes will, literally, provide it with a shop window to the world.

“London is a bridge to a new world of very competitive fashion for us,” says Marek Piechocki, who co-founded the fashion brand in the days after communist rule ended in Poland in 1989. “It is a mirror for the whole world and will prove whether we can stand strong alongside our biggest competitors.”

But gaining a foothold in the UK high street is not without risk. High shop rents and intense competition make the big prize of the £36bn that Britons spend each year on clothing elusive. After trumpeting their arrival three years ago the US chain American Eagle threw in the towel this summer. Gap-owned Banana Republic quit the UK last year. Another US brand Forever 21 has also been closing stores after setting up shop in 2010.

The big successes of recent years have been online specialists, such as Boohoo and Asos, which are going from strength to strength.

“I know, I know,” sighs Piechocki, reacting to the list of failures. “But when you look at these American companies they are offering a classic look with a college style that is more or less repeating forever. The European customer is completely different. I believe we are one of the European leaders in fashion forward clothing.”

Reserved has signed a 10-year lease worth £42m to secure its prized spot on London’s most important shopping street. If the retailer is Poland’s Topshop, then Piechocki must be its de facto Philip Green, albeit a tall, slim, uncontroversial version with a degree in civil engineering from the Gdańsk University of Technology.

The 56 year-old started LPP with another entrepreneur Jerzy Lubianiec when he was in his late twenties. The businessmen initially ran an import business, selling clothes to the hypermarket chains that had begun to colonise Poland’s virgin grocery market.

“During communist times we were having coupons for everything,” Piechocki explains. “There was nothing in the shops. There was big demand for everything, particularly garments.

“In 1989 when we got a container load of 20,000 shirts, customers would be queuing up and paying cash,” he says. “Then we were having a whole table of cash and the next day we could go and buy more.”

Around half of parent company LPP’s 6bn zloty (£1.3bn) annual sales hail from Reserved stores with the rest rung up by its four other brands: Mohito, House, Cropp and Sinsay. Reserved’s pitch is to 20- to 40-year-old British shoppers with “accessible and affordable on-trend pieces” such as the £40 faux leather jackets and £20 skinny jeans among its autumn ranges.

Piechocki describes its women’s fashion – its also offers men’s and childrenswear – as “more feminine” than the likes of H&M with an “eastern European twist” on current trends. Its in-house designers use graphics inspired by Poland’s famous heritage in poster art to give the brand a point of difference.

New Zealand Unit of Topshop Placed in Receivership

The fate of Topshop’s two New Zealand storesA retail store where merchandise is sold, usually a product, usually on a retail basis, and where wares are often kept. is uncertain, merely two years after the brand arrived in the country.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The New Zealand arm of British fashion retailer Topshop said on Thursday that it had been placed in receivership, just two years after the brand arrived in the country.

Top Retail Limited, which owns the licence to operate Topshop in New Zealand, said in an emailed statement that its two stores would stay open until a final decision was made on their ownership.

Like its Australian counterpart, the chain has struggled amid increased competition and posted losses, its receiver firm McGrathNicol said in a statement.

As in many countries, New Zealand’s retail sector has been hurt as consumers replace visits to brick-and-mortar stores with online shopping.

In neighbouring Australia, the chain had also suffered in the soft retail market and was placed under administration in May. Four Australian stores had managed to stay afloat after a restructure in which Britain’s Arcadia Group Ltd bought back parts of Topshop from its Australian franchise.

Topshop opened its doors in New Zealand in 2015 to social media fanfare and long queues of people. It operates stores on the mainstreets of the capital, Wellington, and the country’s largest city, Auckland.
