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.
First, John Lewis unveiled plans to convert part of its Oxford Street, London flagship into office space. And now M&S is doing the same. It wants to convert the upper floors of its Oxford Street site near Marble Arch.
M&S has launched webstores in 46 new international markets as it works to boost its global sales, “instantly expanding online reach to over 100 countries and enabling millions more customers to purchase M&S products”.
M&S is putting extra weight behind the sustainability credentials of its denim offer for the new season — a key move given that denim is one of its hero categories and it makes 10% of all jeans sold in Britain.
