What is driving growth in the Global Luxury Apparel Market?

The global luxury apparel market has seen exceptional recovery since 2021, after the inevitable sales decline in 2020 due to the pandemic.

This growth is only expected to continue, and GlobalData’s free report Global Luxury Apparel Market Trends, Size and Forecasts out to 2025, can assist companies in understanding the drivers behind this growth, as well as potential inhibitors and key trends affecting the market.

The Eastpak and Kipling teams will remain headquartered in Antwerp, Belgium, while the JanSport team will continue to be headquartered in Denver, US.

Flood most recently served as president of Eastpak. After joining VF in 2003 as senior director, marketing for the Nautica brand (formerly part of VF Corporation), she has held various senior positions, including leading global marketing and strategy for Nautica before joining the Kipling brand as president of Kipling Americas in 2016. Prior to joining VF, Flood spent ten years with Guess, Inc, holding various marketing and brand leadership roles.

Flood will be based at the headquarters of VF International, in Stabio, Switzerland, reporting to Martino Scabbia Guerrini, executive vice president and president EMEA.

“Nina’s previous experience as president of Eastpak and president of Kipling North America make her the ideal leader for the Global Packs organisation. Under Nina’s guidance, we will enable Eastpak, JanSport, and Kipling to begin the next chapter of their individual success stories and together as a collective organisation to become the global leader in packs,” says Scabbia Guerrini.

Flood adds: “I am honoured to be leading the Global Packs organisation and to be working on the Kipling brand again. I look forward to working with the amazing team of talented people and growing our Packs business.”

Reporting its most recent quarterly figures, VF Corp posted a 23% increase in revenue for the second quarter ended 2 October to US$3.2bn. Net income amounted to $464.05m, compared to $256.72m a year prior.
