As you may have noticed from the striking graphics on the cover of this week’s magazine, this is our first ever International Special issue of Drapers. Inside we’ve taken a look at the global fashion market and spoken to some of the key players across retailing, manufacturing and supply chain to bring you a broad picture of how different countries are influencing our fashion scene at home, and indeed how you can best exploit that in your business.
To complement this in-depth report we’ve also taken a trip out to Paris for a rare and exclusive interview with Sandro founder Evelyne Chétrite (and her son Ilan), one of the most interesting players in the international market today.
Elsewhere, speculation continues as to the future of premium retailer Jaeger – now under new ownership – and the Aquascutum label, with prospective buyers circling the latter as we went to press. We take a look at Jaeger’s prospects in our in-depth analysis.
Also inside this issue is our in-season Drapers short-order fashion feature, taking a look at what’s on offer right now from some of the key short-order brands and how best to spend your in-season budget to cover the most popular trends.
