Stay ahead of the European apparel market

After witnessing a dip of 21.2% in 2020, the European apparel market has seen a significant growth of 22.7% in 2021. This comes as, despite lockdowns and social restrictions in the first half of the year, mass vaccination drives meant consumers returned to their workplaces and began reattending social occasions in the latter, putting money back into apparel. However, increasing inflation and costs of living in 2022 are severely affecting consumers’ discretionary incomes. It is now crucial for European brands to understand how shopping habits are changing in order to stay ahead of their competitors.

Meanwhile, former Gap and Burberry executive Jason Morgan will join the European management team as chief operating officer (COO) on 15 April.

In the newly created COO position, Morgan will oversee all operational aspects of C&A Europe, including planning, allocation, supply chain, and logistics. He will assume an integrating role, connecting departments such as range, finance, selling as well as consumer and digital.

Morgan’s experience ranges from leadership positions at various brands such as Gap, Burberry , and Coach, where he served as vice president of merchandise, planning and allocation, to his previous position as senior vice president of global merchandising for Pandora.

“I am pleased to welcome Suzanne and Jason to C&A Europe. I am confident their leadership and expertise will contribute substantially to elevating our business to the next level,” says Giny Boer, CEO of C&A Europe.

Last month, C&A Europe announced its subsidiary Canda International is to close operations due to the decline in formalwear since the Covid pandemic.
