Armani: new e-store marks another missed opportunity in luxury e-commerce

Giorgio Armani has launched an e-shop at Armani.com, offering delivery to 27 countries in Europe, plus Hong Kong, China, Japan, the US, and Canada. Having developed the e-shop with third-party provider Yoox, the Italian fashion retailer has revealed a rather unimpressive proposition, and becomes the latest entry to a long list of luxury houses taking a rather half-hearted approach to e-commerce.

Armani: still going it alone

Giorgio Armani denies he is considering selling his eponymous business. The question of succession comes to any fashion company closely associated with its designer, however at Armani, the creative force, Mr Armani himself, is also the business force. Having built up a global operation worth over E4.0 billion in worldwide retail sales, the question of who will succeed him becomes pressing.

Asda Living: rollout plans build pace

Asda has appointed a managing director for its Asda Living unit. For three years Asda has talked of grand plans for its Living format, but has so far opened only 10 stores. While there remain obstacles ahead, the retailer's appointment of an MD for the business unit is a positive move and takes Asda a step further to realizing its ambition for a 300-store estate.

Asda: budget fashion range launch

Asda has launched a new budget fashion range, George 'Must Haves', which includes about 15 items of men's and women's fashions as well as a smaller childrenswear offer. The range is intended to be the cheapest fashion on the market, enabling the supermarket to compete with budget retailers such as Primark.

Asda: dressing to impress

George's upcoming range of clothing will be a substantial investment, with 1 million garments designed and produced in the UK - but as a proportion of George's total sales, which topped GBP2 billion last year, this is still a relatively minor gamble. The move is also in line with evolving consumer demands and should help to improve George's image.

Asda: high street too tough for George standalones

Asda is to close its George standalone stores following a four-and-a-half year trial. Conditions are challenging for high street clothing retailers, even those in the fast-growing value sector. With tough competition and little sign of market conditions easing in the near future, there is little reason for the grocer to persevere.

Asda: suits you, sir

One more chapter in the supermarket's non-food assault on the high street has seen Asda launch a GBP30 suit. Tesco is offering a suit for the same price, while Primark and Matalan are also trying to match the price in an effort to give cash-strapped customers a reason to spend.
