    2021/30/03

    The pandemic has been a lot of things. But to the fashion resale market, it’s been a windfall. There’s nothing like being stuck in the house for a year to prompt many Americans to realize they have a lot of clothes. And for consumers who saw their incomes shrink, it only makes sense to sell some items. This has led to a significant increase in sales for second-hand sites.

A study by Yale university shows a surge in digital activity – from online shopping to following a fitness class to meeting on Zoom - has hidden environmental costs, with 42.6 million megawatt hours of additional electricity to account for.

The aim of this report, submitted on 19 January by Guillaume de Seynes, the chairman of the CSF "Fashion & Luxury" to the ministers for ecological transition and industry, is to explore the possibilities of relocation in France and to evaluate the benefits and attractiveness of France in the face of the development of sustainable fashion, which is in full expansion. To put it plainly, since France is the worst performer in Europe in terms of labour costs, identify new business models that reconcile economic performance, respect for the environment and the attractiveness of the regions. The aim is to double the share of made in France in the consumption of textiles, household linen and footwear "in the long term". And to reach a quarter of purchases made in France.

On 22 October, a virtual round table at the Fashion Green Days forum offered a progress report on these environmental labeling tests, which require close scrutiny at all levels of the company, from raw materials to the transport of goods.

    When the coronavirus outbreak clutched the world in March 2020, Paris Fashion Week had just come to a close. Months later, fashion week federations around the globe decided to migrate. Now, six months on from the last women’s fashion week, the four fashion capitals displayed a hybridized, but mostly digital, fashion week — their attempt to still buoy press, buyers and consumers alike. Having grande fashion shows be replaced by a two-dimensional digital version of itself poses an opportunity for the fashion industry to reconsider its gluttonous approach to how we consume collections, across four cities in four weeks, for twelve hours a day, in similar anonymous, crammed spaces with a handful of exceptions. While it may prevent the exchange of ideas in person, it comes at a time when the way we see fashion was already undergoing a period of upheaval. The pandemic merely accelerated fashion’s digital makeover.

  • Covid-19 is plunging old-fashion luxury brands into the digital age #31

    Even after e-commerce became commonplace, many luxury companies remained cautious about jumping into digital sales. Items that justify their thousand-dollar price tags with claims of exceptional craftsmanship and materials aren’t always able to communicate their desirability through tiny two-dimensional images. They may also lose their shine if shoppers can compare prices across sites, while the lavish experience of purchasing an item in an opulent store can feel merely transactional when checking out on a screen. Still, as more shoppers have moved online, luxury companies have followed, and with Covid-19 now keeping consumers home and many stores shut, it’s pushing them even harder to give new priority to their digital businesses.
