Sportswear Internationals ongoing “Retailers to Watch”-feature sets its eyes on one of the leading stores in Paris, Centre Commercial.
The store’s brands include Veja classics, Bleu de Paname, Patagonia, Norse Projects, Roseanna, Suzie Winkle, A Kind of Guise and Common Projects to name only few, and what all these brands have in common is the transparent production of the collections.
“Transparency, design, traceability, fashion, activism, all of these words reflect the DNA of Centre Commercial,” say Centre Commercial founders Sébastien Kopp and Francois Ghislain Morillion.
As for the question of the importance of tradeshows and which to visit, the answer was clear:
“For us fairs are important. They allow us to discover and follow brands and fashion. We are going to Man/Woman, Première Classe, Capsule and Revolver.”
