The week ahead on just-style...
Taking a look at the week ahead for the footwear and apparel industry, here is a snapshot of just-style's latest news and insights agenda.
After a steady set of full-year results at German sportswear firm Adidas earlier in the month, it is now the turn of US rival Nike to report its third quarter figures.
For fiscal 2010, Adidas more than doubled its net income to EUR567m, from EUR245m in 2009.
This week Nike will look to keep its nose in front though, having reported a a 22% hike in second quarter profit in December. However, the company's shares fell nearly 6% at the time - after an 11% rise in future orders came in below analysts' expectations.
During the past quarter Nike has also opened its largest distribution centre in Asia as part of plans to double its revenue in China by 2015.
Retail will be on the agenda on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, as just-style heads out to Retail Week Conference 2011 in London. Among the speakers at this year's event, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, are Marks and Spencer general merchandise boss Kate Bostock and Peacocks MD Tim Bettley.
Another event to look out for this week will be a workshop on Essential Sourcing Skills organised by Industry Forum Services on Wednesday, also in London.
