Are Affordable watches from China Any Good? Yes, And Here’s Why

NEW YORK, 2022-Apr-01 — /EPR Network/ — There are many, many watches around that, besides having a smooth design, also carry a high, high price tag. As a consequence, people are wary. Are all great-looking watches so pricey? Well, no. The great-looking, affordable watches from China are definitely not as pricey but just as stylish.

In fact, if you are looking to add one or several great-looking affordable watches from China to your collection, then look no further than Megalith. Our curated selection of only the most stylish yet, affordable timepieces is ideal for the fashion-savvy young man of today.

Rest assured that there are a lot of stylish watches out there, and you don’t have to go broke in order to get one. However, you might ask yourself: are affordable watches from China really any good? Well, yes, and allow us to tell you why:

The Switzerland-China Watch Connection
Unbeknown to most, the cheap labor costs China is known for can make for some pretty awesome watches. See, it’s an open secret that most of the Swiss watchmakers get some key parts from Asia, mostly China, for cost-efficiency.

However, the fact that they do so does not prevent them from slapping the ‘Swiss-made’ label into the finished product. Why? Simply because a Swiss law mandates that industrial products, which watches are, need to be 60% Swiss.

To be more specific, 60% of the total cost and assembly of them need to happen within Switzerland. That means that manufacturers can get some parts from elsewhere and assemble them in-house just fine. Said law, however, is not all-encompassing and leaves plenty of room to wiggle.

For example, some manufacturers do outsource as much of the manufacturing process as they can to China when demand is high. They need only to fulfill the key in-house requirement for the final assembly, and they will still retain the right to say the product is ‘Swiss-made.’

On the Chinese side of the question, however, things are more interesting. Since brands regularly outsource to China and outsource larger and larger amounts of work pretty often, Chinese watchmakers are learning.

Just like with electronics, Chinese watches have, over time, been getting better and better. This is how the industry got quality, stylish and affordable watches from China.

Affordable watches from China
Let’s say that you are a young man who is very fashion conscious. You know that clothes do not make the man, but they can surely make the man stand out. There are few things that can make a great first impression or command respect from onlookers than dressing fine.

One problem, though: dressing fine does cost a bit, and if you are just starting out in the real world, chances are, you can’t afford it yet. Or can you? At least when it comes to watches, you need not break the bank in order to add something stylish to your outfit.

A well-dressed man is a man that commands respect from those around him; people tend to take them more seriously. That is something you can use for when you are just starting out.

Traditionally, high-end watches were the go-to for young men wanting to look great. However, their soaring prices might have you putting off buying one until much later in life. Luckily there’s an extensive selection of affordable watches from China that are just as stylish.

The fact is that Swiss watchmakers have been gradually outsourcing for decades to Chinese factories. So, Chinese factories now know how to make watches just stylish and, conveniently, less pricey.

While they might lack the precious stones and rare metals that make high-end watches fetch obscene prices, they make for it in style.

As such, no matter which kind of outfit you are choosing for the day, there’s more than one nice-looking Chinese timepiece to go with it. And, again, you won’t even remotely have to go broke to purchase several of them for each occasion.

The Made in China Label
In the west particularly, there has been a stigma written largely around the made-in-China label. Namely, that its synonym of shoddy quality. Not without its reasons, Asia and China specifically used to have a bad reputation for counterfeiting.

Often, the western market would flood with large quantities of goods that were suspiciously cheap. The reason for that was that their quality was questionable at best. Among those goods were, yes, watches. By the later 20th century, however, that began to change.

Due to the sweeping economic reforms taking place around the country, China gave its first step into becoming the manufacturing center of the world. In hindsight, it might seem like an obvious thing to happen but not so much at the time.

It was a bold gamble that paid off, and it took the untold amounts of sweat and hard work of millions upon millions. Fast forward to today, and you will be hard-pressed to find one item, either mechanical or electronic, that does not feature some parts made in China.

Seriously, do a little digging around your favorite brands, and it’s bound to turn up that at least two of their suppliers are from China. And, yes, that does include watchmaking brands. Famous Swiss watchmaking brands are also in on it. Their participation also plays a large role in making affordable watches from China possible.

Swiss Watchmaking Before and After
The Swiss watchmaker industry has long been pretty much a national source of pride. Exactly around 481 years long tradition at this time and a source of pride probably for that much longer as well.

When the industry began, and for most of its existence, it was a craftmanship-based occupation. Meaning the craft master built himself the parts that went into the watch. They would occasionally take in apprentices and teach them the ropes to have them become assistants.

Such it happens with all craftmanship-based industry around the time; it was an in-house national industry pretty much completely. A Swiss watchmaker made the parts and assembled the watch, which they could later commercialize.

The fact of the matter is that producing a single timepiece was a very labor-intensive, time-consuming, and demanding job, as well. That remained the case until the industrial revolution introduced machinery into the mix.

Factories could help mass produce timepieces on the scale at previously unimaginable speed. Of course, it came with a trade-off. Not all workers would develop a Swiss watchmaker level of skill. Nor did they need to since machinery produced functional, good enough watch parts easily.

As watches became more common, enthusiasts were no longer content with just any run-of-the-mill watch. They wanted something unique, and thus, the luxury watch industry came to be.

The reasoning behind it was simple: use the best available materials and craftsmanship to create distinctive and pricier timepieces. For that, they needed rarer materials which, thanks to the soaring international trading of the 20th century, they could get easily.

This was the start of globalization and, in a way, the birth of the industry that is the affordable watches from China.

How Swiss Watches Paved the Way for Affordable watches from China
The opening of the Chinese economy was a success because of something called the cost of labor. See, developed countries have a higher standard of living, which means, among other things, that things like utilities and basic services tend to be pricier. That it’s the cost of living and in order for a worker to keep up with it salaries need be higher.

That it’s not an issue for developing countries which China pretty much was back in 1989. Basic services in China could not be as pricier as, say, the United States. The economy was not there yet. What China had in spades was a massive pool of working-age population that, again, did not need yet to command high wages.

That means that Chinese labor was far cheaper than most western labor. Thus, it was a no-brainer decision for brands to take advantage of the opening of the Chinese economy. Setting up shop in China for manufacturing or relying on Chinese factories to source from fast became the norm.

It ultimately meant a welcomed cost reduction for businesses. Something which in an ever-expanding global economy it’s something all brands aspire to. Even Swiss watchmaking brands.

See, ‘Swiss watches’ have long been the gold standard in quality for the watchmaking industry. But what makes a watch Swiss? More specifically, how much of it need to actually come from Switzerland?

According to an ordinance by Switzerland’s Federal Council dated 29 December, 1971 they needed to be 60% Swiss. To expound: for industrial goods, 60% of the manufacturing costs and important manufacturing steps must happen inside Switzerland. That was the minimum requirement for a watch, which is an industrial product, to be ‘Swiss-made.’ This ordinance, however, it’s a bit lax.

Swiss Watches (partially) Made in China
The fact of the matter is that the demands of the 60% ordinance no longer required all parts to be Swiss produced. That, realistically speaking, would be impossible for most brands and cost-prohibitive for even the biggest brands. Thus, it gives leeway to manufacturers to source some key parts from elsewhere.

One of the favorite parts of the world for Swiss manufacturers to source from just so happens to be, you guessed it, China. Since the 1970s, the Swiss watchmaking industry’s biggest open secret has been its sourcing of parts from Asia.

Cases, crowns, hands, dials, and even watchbands and covering glass. Swiss watchmakers can legally get those parts from China and elsewhere in Asia. Given that they still take care of providing the watch movements and assembling in-house, they can still pretty much call the final product ‘Swiss-made.’

Although a few lawmakers and even fewer watchmakers call into question the alleged loopholes of the law, the industry is not stopping. Watchmakers from the top brands still source key parts of their product from the outside.

Competitive Swiss watchmaking brands take it one step further. In order to remain competitive as a budget brand, they seek to source and outsource to and from China as much as possible.

From getting most finished part from there and/or getting components of important parts to Switzerland to later assemble there. This kind of complex manufacturing schedule it’s what allows Swiss budget brands to remain in business without dropping the ‘Swiss-made’ label.

Finally, at times of high demand, some big brands pretty much outsource most of the manufacturing work to Chinese factories. Those Chinese factories have been getting better and better at it due to the vast amount of work said Swiss brands heap upon them.

What The Future Holds for The Swiss and Chinese Watchmaking Industries
An interesting situation unfolded in 2020. Due to the restrictive measures required in Switzerland due to the COVID-19 pandemic, lots of Swiss manufacturers stopped or deescalated operations. But that was not the case in China.

Several factories remained open by adopting protective sanitary measures, and the Swiss brands took notice of it in two ways. First, they either outsourced, increased manufacturing to China, and/or shifted to opening more stores in mainland China.

The second represents an interesting choice. See, Chinese consumers love to do purchase tourism. They go abroad and buy non-essential things like watches. However, most of the global tourism saw a downturn during 2020. Chinese buyers, a significant source of revenue for said brands, were not able to buy from them. As such, they opened stores in mainland China to make it easy for them to buy.

Both actions were favorable for the affordable watches from China part of the industry:

  1. They had access to the latest models.
  2. An ever-growing digital economy allowed them to sell their affordable brands at home and abroad to the enthusiast that wanted in on the fashion but were conscious about their wallets.

In short, despite the obstacles, the watchmaking industry remains in business, and the stylish, affordable watches from China are just getting started.

Megalith’s signature 8212 Quartz Men’s Watch oozes with elegance and functionality

NEW YORK, 2022-Mar-17 — /EPR RETAIL NEWS/ — Among all of our carefully curated selection of timepieces we proudly showcase to offer you the cream of the crop among masculine, stylish watches, one definitively stands out.

Our signature 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band is one step ahead in both elegance and functionality from your average watch.

Aside from having its internal composition made with top-of-the-line modern watchmaking craftsmanship and featuring a quartz crystal-powered design, it packs an extra layer of masculinity in it.

Its design’s a tribute to the watches worn by fighter aces and commanders of the sky. Men of unparalleled skill for which precision was everything and the tools they needed at their disposal could not be anything but.

As such, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band offers one of the most precise, if not the most precise, time-telling display on his face. To not even begin to mention its confident, elegant design, which combines both the timeless elegance of analog timepieces of yore. On top of that, it also, of course, has all the features a jet pilot needs for and visually showcases all the imposing aesthetics those features imply.

All in all, every aforementioned feature makes up for an iconic design exuberating both style and confidence. Not for nothing, it has become a flagship, and iconic piece Megalith Watches proudly offers to our distinguished clientele.

The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features
Precision is the name of the game with the 8212 models. Since its imposing design does include extra features a jet pilot is thankful for, nubile watch aficionados might be intimidated by it. Thus, in order for you to take full advantage of the possibilities this particular design affords you, let’s break down such features.

The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features a Chronograph
Do not let yourself get intimidated by the name chronograph, more colloquially known as ‘stopwatch.’ It’s simply one very intuitive feature of watches that, although making it look more complex, makes its use surprisingly easier.

In simple terms, a chronograph is a type of watch with additional dials on its face used to more precisely keep track of elapsed time. It typically has two or three separate dials, one of which tracks minutes, another which tracks hour, and a third which may track seconds either continuously or in intervals.

You do this by using the chronograph’s stopwatch function, which allows the user to time intervals or measure elapsed time.

To use a chronograph, start by pressing a button to activate the timer. Then begin timing whatever it is you are trying to measure. When finished, press the button again to stop the timer. The time elapsed remains displayed on the dials.

Chronographs often see use by athletes, surgeons, and, of course, pilots and other professionals who need to keep track of time intervals. They are also a feature of scientific experiments wherein measuring time is crucial. In short, the chronograph makes for a more precise measurement of time for professionals and, thus, surely will help you to keep track of it as well.

A Dash of a Fighter Jet Dashboard in Its Design
Reminiscent of a jet dashboard, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band features a chronograph on its clockface. More commonly referred to as ‘those other three little clocks within the clock,’ a chronograph is another practical and visually appealing feature of watches with more functionalities.

Each of the extra faces is there to display a different measure of chronological timekeeping for extra precision. You will almost always find one tiny clock face to display the sixty minutes that make up an hour. They are often displayed in a wheel showing the numbers ’60’, ’20’, and ’40’ clockwise from the top in that order. In order to differentiate it from the other faces of similar size, the minutes’ clockface has concentric ripple-like circles within it.

Another one of its faces is, of course, all about charting the sixty seconds that make up a minute in order to track them. The clock face showcases the numbers ’60’, ’15’, ’30’, and ’45’ spread out clockwise from the top.

Lastly, the other face of the trio that makes up the chronograph showcases the twenty-four hours of the day. Showcasing the numbers’ 24′, ‘6’, ’12’, and ’18’ clockwise when looked from the top, the wheel instantly tells what hour of the day currently is. The design of the circle itself is rather bare, not even featuring a frame. Instead, it had one clock hand that stands out very well from the rest of the design for easy tracking.

As a stylish little nod to the aforementioned jet dashboard design theme, in the hour displaying chronograph, there’s a jetliner. The jetliner’s nose, highlighted in red, acts as the arrow pointing to what hour of the day it is.

8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features a Tachymeter
A tachymeter is a tool used to measure the speed of an object, and it does this by measuring the time it took for said object to travel a certain distance. Said time measure can then go into use for calculating the speed of the object measured.

Tachymeters are a fairly common feature of watches; they are popular with race drives and also pilots, who use them to measure ground speeds during takeoff and landing.

The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band’s Tachymeter
As is the case with most wristwatches featuring a tachymeter, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band’s one lays on its rim. Etched on the ‘rim’ of the lock, the circular frame in which the clock sits inside of the tachymeter is the numbers written on it. Said numbers run counter clock-wisely from 60 up to 700 with differently spaced intervals between them.

The tachymeter is just an extra scale that can help you measure both time and speed. To use it, just start the chronograph to measure the object or event you seek to measure and stop once done. The clock’s second hand will point out to both the seconds marked inside the clock and to the distance marked on the tachymeter, usually represented in miles.

Besides the obvious advantage the tachymeter affords for time measuring, it also has aesthetic value. The numbers etched around the rim of the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band give it an air of complexity hard to replicate for more plain watches.

The 8212s Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band A Megalith Staple
As mentioned before, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band is one of our signature timepieces at Megalith. And just like the rest of our timepieces, we are proud of being able to offer them to the mature, up and coming man of today at an affordable price.

Regardless of the fact that our watches both look and function just like pricey high-end brands, we are able to offer them at a considerably lower rate. Our access to the most skillful watchmaker in Guangdong, the watchmaking capital of the world, makes this possible.

Through our sourcing of the very same parts high-end brands use for their timepieces at a lower cost, we can make sure you can get a watch of the same quality with less stress in your bank account.

Regardless of how much of an up and comer you are as a mature me of today, we can surely offer you a stylish timepiece at an affordable rate. Not for nothing, we like to call our timepieces ‘the mature men’s first watch.’ Feel free to shop around to find yours as well. https://megalithwatch.com/

The 8388M Chronograph Watch with Stainless Steel Band and Its Timeless Elegance

NEW YORK, 2022-Feb-20 — /EPR Network/ — The 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band’s look is one of timeless elegance. For at least five decades now, stainless steel watches managed to remain in fashion due to both durability and style.

Unlike older watches that preferred using leather bands for fastening, stainless steel bands guaranteed a more durable, more aesthetic look. Within its case, also made from stainless steel, the 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band features the aforementioned chronograph.

Thus, adding additional measures of time by having three little extra dials dedicated to measuring milliseconds, seconds, and minutes.

However, the one thing that strikes you about the 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band immediately once you glance upon its looks. With a silvery color due to the fact that its primary material is stainless steel, the piece evokes a classy appearance typical of watches of the 1970s.

The overall very stainless-steel-looking appearances of watches started prevailing in the 70s. However, we’ve been using stainless steel in watchmaking for much longer than that. How long, you ask?

Stainless Steel and Watchmaking: When Did It Happen?
Way before the appearance of the 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band, the watchmaking industry was comfortably riding a wave of manufacturing based on precious metals. Around the 1920s, gold and silver watches were the norm. It might sound shocking for people nowadays. After all, they are still luxury items as of today.

But back then, manufacturers did prefer to make their watches based on those metals mainly because of their high levels of malleability. As such, it was relatively easier to shape the metals into the shape of the many, many little pieces that made up their watches.

Also, the fact that they looked distinctively luxurious and fashionable couple with people at the time having relative financial abundance indeed contributed to their popularity. All of that changed with the 1929 wall street crash, which was the beginning of the financial depression, better known as the great depression.

Soon, people were very reluctant to spend on non-essential items due to widespread financial uncertainty. As such, watches made from silver and gold had to be the last thing on their mind, one can infer. As a result, manufacturers saw a dramatic downturn in demand for said watches.

However, military tension building up somewhere else in the world and protracted economic recovery in the factories meant people still needed watches. That presented a challenge. The average consumer was not willing to spend much on a watch made from precious metals. They only wanted the watch for practical purposes, its functionalities so that it could help them in their day-to-day work for a long time.

As such, they needed a watch that was relatively inexpensive and, preferably, reasonably durable or able to withstand rough treatment. Soon, they came up with an answer: using stainless steel as a base material for their watches.

Stainless Steel as A Watchmaking Material
During the 1920s, stainless was already a material used in watchmaking, albeit sparsely and only for models of specific use. Pilot, scientists, divers, and railroad workers commonly used models made from stainless steel due to their durability. However, such models were occupation-specific and often were very bulky to the point of seeming impractical to day-to-day wearing.

Watchmakers at the time also had tremendous difficulties working with steel, which was considerably less malleable than gold and silver. Manufacturing techniques at the time didn’t help either.

Thus, they simply preferred to buy the latter metals, however more expensive they were, in order to keep productions levels high. This is the reason why, behind its many advantages, the industry relegated stainless steel as a second-tier manufacturing material.

Soon, those techniques became well known even for watchmakers. As a result, both the technique and equipment to better work the material became commonplace rather quickly, as did its use in watchmaking.

Little by little, stainless steel watches ascended from almost workwear exclusive to everyday fashion. Thus, setting the stage for the production of much better-looking watches like the 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band.

Advantages Of Using Stainless Steel as A Material
Due to its nature, stainless steel as a particular material offers a few advantages over more common, less refined metals. Here are some of the advantages of using steel as a material in watchmaking:

  • Durability

As a material, stainless steel is notably durable and able to withstand a lot of wear and tear on its own. So, watches made from it, like the 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band, are pretty much able to handle rough situations well.

On top of that, the material has the advantage of being exceptionally resistant to the forces of corrosion. Unlike iron, stainless steel is much less prone to rusting after extensive contact with oxygen and moisture. In short, your 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band is likely to look good for a long time and under a lot of conditions.

  • Affordability

Unlike gold and silver, the former preferred metals involved in watchmaking, stainless steel is affordable, very affordable in comparison. Thus, making it a very popular choice for those budget-conscious consumers, especially if they want a watch for purely practical purposes.

However odd, it is also possible to stumble upon a timepiece majorly composed of stainless steel that’s pricier than a golden one. In that case, it is likely a luxury model, and the craftsmanship that went into making it does sometimes tally to a higher price. Still, most stainless-steel watches are not expensive at all.

  • Stylishness

One standout feature of stainless-steel timepieces it’s that they almost always do look very elegant. Aesthetic choices of the manufacturer aside, this is in grand part due to the seamlessness of the material.

There’s something definitively pleasing about the sleek, silvery, clean look timepiece like the 8388M chronograph watch with stainless steel band has. Guaranteed to bode well with both business and casual outfits.

Megalith’s Stainless Steel Watches
As the company that proudly considers itself ‘the first stylish watch of the mature man’, Megalith watches does offer a curated selection of stylish stainless steel watches.

As such, and due to our privileged location near Guangzhou, the watchmaking capital of the world, we are able to provide high-quality-tier models affordably. Rather than having men spend too much on a watch when trying to assert their style, we instead offer them the same quality at a lower cost.

Bring Back Civility merchandise to help spread civility across the US

JUNEAU, Alaska, 2020-Oct-13 — /EPR RETAIL NEWS/ — What started out as a way to get his daily 10,000 steps, a local man hopes in the long run will change the course of dialog in America.

For 12 years during the cruise season, Robert Steinke has been coming to the Port in Juneau to greet cruise customers and welcome them aboard humpback whale watching excursions. With the pandemic in full swing, he still feels drawn to the Port and would visit frequently – focusing on his daily 10,000 step goal rather than greeting customers. These walks allowed for releasing some built up pandemic energy and passing the time listening to a little talk radio or podcasts.

It was during one of these daily walks while listening to various podcast’s that Robert was struck with an idea. “Sometimes on these call-in shows, things can get a bit heated,” stated Steinke, “then, one of the callers said ‘Why can’t we just bring back civility?’ I couldn’t get that thought out of my mind, I went to bed that night thinking about the idea of civility and how important that concept is to a democracy.” From that day at the Port, Steinke was inspired to help spread the idea of bringing back civility.

After chatting with his wife and doing some research, Steinke decided the best way to change the tone was for individuals to publicly share the concept of civility – almost brand themselves with the idea of ‘be civil’. So, Steinke launched the website BringBackCivility.com where individuals can brand themselves with the ideal of being civil to each other.

“We don’t have to agree on everything, or even anything, to be civil to each other. Being civil is really a choice,” stated Steinke. “This is just a simple way to remind ourselves and others to be kind and be civil to each other.” Since the launch of the website, the most popular items have been face masks and hats. Both come in a variety of colors and designs to suit everyone. “I like the face masks, they make a few different statements when you wear one,” stated Steinke.

The site will be up at least until the end of the year. Most gear will be shipped in 3-7 days and can be shipped worldwide. The company is also taking bulk orders from shops that are interested in carrying the line.

Strut through life in comfort with Accents Inserts

Emeryville, CA, U.S.A., 2020-Apr-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Accents Inserts have been found to remove sweat bacteria from shoes. This buildup creates odor that is then spread onto shoes and feet. These insoles extract this accumulation from the soles of shoes preventing continued growth of bacteria. It is unhygienic when people continue reusing their shoes barefoot. Removing the sweat that holds the bacteria causing the smell is beneficial to ending this issue. Accents Inserts are patented replaceable shoe liners acting as a barrier designed to help people overcome their concern with having bacteria buildup and odor in their shoes.

Rachele Cazarez, Founder and CEO, expresses that, “This product will answer several issues we all face while going about our daily routines.” She points out that, “We all deal with the problems of sweat, bacteria and odor buildup in our shoes. Sweat also causes our feet to slide around in shoes and even squeak when we walk.” She goes on to state that, “These all cause discomfort and embarrassment.” She wants it noted that her invention has been designed with care and assembled with quality materials to combat growth of sweat, bacteria and odor in shoes.

The facts show that there are 250,000 sweat glands in the average pair of feet. These cause feet to excrete a half-pint of sweat per day. This then leads to bacteria and odor that increase in a shoe and multiply with each use. Having a barrier like Accents Inserts absorb these, which are then disposed of and replaced with a fresh pair, has been found to be a welcome answer to stopping this accumulation. Continued replacement of the shoe liners makes it feel like a clean new pair of shoes each time they are worn. Accents Inserts are leading people to look at a better answer to an age-old problem that affects everybody.

BESTSELLER partners with local schools in Brande area to increase children’s overall well-being, motivation and learning

BESTSELLER partners with local schools in Brande area to increase children’s overall well-being, motivation and learning

BRANDE, Denmark, 2018-Feb-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — BESTSELLER partners with local schools: A well-being project at the local schools in the Brande area – home of BESTSELLER’s main office –  will focus on setting the stage for children and young people to flourish and grow into strong and enabled young adults.

Over the next three years, pupils in the middle and upper levels of the public schools in the Ikast-Brande Municipality will take part in a project to increase their overall well-being, motivation and learning.

HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND

A healthy, active body creates a healthy, active mind. This seems to be the mantra for Skoleglæde.nu, the organisation behind the initiative. The organisation uses exercise and movement as a lever to increase motivation and learning among pupils. So far, more than 7,500 pupils across Denmark has been part of the initiative, and the results have been very positive increasing the pupils’ power of concentration, engagement and sense of community.

Skoleglæde.nu will be hosting different workshops for pupils and teachers alike, and a key element in the programme will be the daily integration of exercise and academia. During classes, pupils will become acquainted with everything from classic squat jumps and push-ups to yoga and mental fitness.

‘We know that variation in the daily grind is a top priority for pupils, and the well-being among pupils and the relationship between them and their teachers are crucial for the pupils’ motivation and learning outcomes,’ says Henrik Leth from Skoleglæde.nu.

PROUD PARTNER

Gap launches limited-edition girls and boys apparel and accessories inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker’s childhood heirlooms

INSPIRED BY PARKER’S CHILDHOOD HEIRLOOMS, THE COLLECTION CELEBRATES LOVE, LUCK AND MAGIC

NEW YORK, 2018-Feb-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Gap, the iconic American clothing brand, launches the Gap | Sarah Jessica Parker collection, a limited-edition assortment of girls and boys apparel and accessories. The collaboration was a natural fit as it reunites Gap and Parker, who starred in a series of Gap ads in the early aughts. Stemming from Parker’s family tradition of saying “rabbit, rabbit” on the first of every month for good luck, the collection celebrates love, luck and magic.

Inspired by Parker’s childhood heirlooms, the collection embraces prints and texture by playing with ginghams, stripes, florals and eyelet in classic Gap silhouettes. Available in toddler and kids sizing, Gap | Sarah Jessica Parker captures all the nostalgia of passing along well-loved, storied pieces to family and friends, the exuberance of starting your own story in those same pieces, and the joy inherent in wishing luck upon children as they move forward in the world. Parker also worked with Gap to help create two women’s dress styles that are available in the collection.

“Creating this collection with Gap has been such a treat as a mother, as one of eight children, and as a reconnection with the brand,” says Parker. “I hope the pieces are cherished by the children who wear them, that items are passed down among generations, and that some great memories are created while wearing them.”

Channeling Parker’s good luck tradition, there are embroidered rabbits found throughout the collection as well as special ‘property of:’ sewn-in tags to detail each wearer throughout the years which takes inspiration from her own family’s rituals. Gap | Sarah Jessica Parker collection favorites for girls include gingham dresses and separates with eyelet hems, a navy and white stripe flutter sleeve dress with pink roses, a signature rabbit embroidered light blue bomber jacket and a rabbit inspired basket weave mini handbag while boys and toddler boys can choose from graphic tees and gingham shirting with khakis. The collection will also include ‘Ebbit the backpack,’ an egg-inspired character and playful companion perfect for school, travel or towing along for a spring picnic.

“It’s been a delight to collaborate with Sarah Jessica Parker on this special collection for kids that combines her nostalgic childhood memories with signature Gap favorites,” says Wendi Goldman, Gap executive vice president and chief product officer. “We are so thrilled to have Sarah Jessica back with the Gap brand in this new collaboration capacity. Together we created a collection that we hope will be passed down from generation to generation, just as we envisioned.”

With prices starting from $16.95 up to $78, the collection will be available on March 1 through gap.com and GapKids stores in select countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Greater China, Hong Kong and Japan.

“My body changes so much between training, travel and down time. Comfort is so important. I wanted to create casual, cool clothes for girls of all shapes,” said Hernandez. “I am so excited to launch my Obsess capsule at JCPenney and help girls feel confident and comfortable.”

Obsess will be available within the JCPenney girls’ department complementing a comprehensive assortment of popular brands, including The Original Arizona Jean Co.®, by&by, Nike® and Levi’s®.

LVMH launches a groundbreaking program for students from 50 leading schools and universities in Europe

Paris, 2018-Feb-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — LVMH has launched INSIDE LVMH Program, a groundbreaking program for students from 50 leading partner schools and universities in Europe, as well as interns working within the Group. Built around a digital platform, the program gives these young talents a deeper understanding of the strategic challenges in luxury, and an opportunity to propose solutions by working on the subject “Imagine the Luxury Experience of Tomorrow”. The top students will have a chance to join the 6,500 interns and 1,000 young graduates recruited each year by the Group and its Maisons around the world.

More than 3,500 young talents have already joined the INSIDE LVMH program, which is open to students in engineering, business, creative and design and technology courses at schools in six European countries (France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany), as well as interns and students in work/study programs within the Group. Designed in close collaboration with its professor-ambassadors, INSIDE LVMH Program enables the Group to position itself as a preferred employer while preparing and recruiting the next generations of managers and leaders at LVMH. By bridging the university and business environments with a 360° immersion into the LVMH Group, the program brings participants a better understanding of the luxury industry.

“Given our ambitious recruitment goals, we have designed the INSIDE LVMH Program to be a stepping stone between the academic world where the young talent is being nurtured, and the professional world. At LVMH, we believe that people make the difference, so we are delighted to be able to offer them a unique opportunity to discover the various aspects of our Group, and to imagine themselves joining our Maisons’ teams.” Chantal Gaemperle, Group EVP Human Resources & Synergies, LVMH.

The program revolves around a four-month digital immersion behind the scenes at the LVMH Group where students discover key skillsets in the luxury industry: Design & Creation, Brand Management, Supply Chain & Manufacturing, Digital Transformation & Entrepreneurship and Customer Excellence. A series of 50 short videos have been produced to guide the students “Inside”. These educational videos were created in collaboration with professors from prestigious schools (including Central Saint Martins, Bocconi University, HEC, ESSEC, CentraleSupélec and the Institut Français de la Mode), and joined by first person accounts from managers at over 20 LVMH Maisons.

Students are also invited to work as part of teams to imagine and develop their vision of the luxury experience of tomorrow, guided by professor-ambassadors from their school and by LVMH managers involved in the program. The 200 students with the most compelling ideas will present their concept to a Jury comprising executives from LVMH Maisons and members of the LVMH Executive Committee on May 3, 2018 in Paris. Following the program, the top students will be invited to join LVMH Maisons.

With this major initiative, LVMH is strengthening its relations with top European schools and universities and creating a pool of young talents for recruitment of the next generations of managers and leaders within LVMH Maisons.

JACK & JONES expands its denim and jeanswear with a junior collection

JACK & JONES expands its denim and jeanswear with a junior collection

 

BRANDE, Denmark, 2018-Feb-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — This autumn JACK & JONES expands its denim brotherhood with a junior collection. The junior collection is a line of styles in the well-known JACK & JONES design, scaled down to fit young guys aged 5 to 16. Building on its solid reputation for high quality and knowhow from 28 years in the menswear business, JACK & JONES now introduces a range of styles for the younger consumers. The first junior range will be available from autumn 2018.

FUTURE FASHION LEADERS

The junior collection is based on the existing, well-known JACK & JONES design – just scaled down in size. The expression therefore differs from the typical childlike look often offered for the younger audience.

Sales Director at JACK & JONES, Dennis Birk Jørgensen, explains; “These young consumers have evolved with digitalization into strong and independent opinion makers. They’re heavily influenced by social media and they’re discovering their own opinions on style at a rapid pace,” says Dennis and continues, “Never before has this group had more interest in clothing and as the influencers of the future, we want to be part of their world where they connect, share and shape future trends.”

By adding a junior collection, JACK & JONES closes the loop of size ranges, offering styles to the male consumer throughout his lifetime.

CRAFTSMANSHIP AND DEDICATION – IN SMALLER SIZES

Created with passion and craftsmanship, the youngest consumers will see a collection that echoes the coolest looks of the JACK & JONES adult styles. The junior collections will reflect the brand’s dedication to denim and jeanswear, offering styles from the three lifestyles; CORE, ORIGINALS and PREMIUM as well as JEANS INTELLIGENCE. “In JACK & JONES we are denim addicts and we put tons of energy and dedication into every collection and every pair of jeans. In our company, we set high standards for everything we do, and these values will naturally be reflected in each junior collection”, Dennis elaborates. The junior collections will focus on casual jeanswear with a quality, design and fitting that will appeal to the younger target group.

AVAILABILITY

The junior range will be offered six times a year, following the JACK & JONES collection flow. The first collection will be online at jackjones.com in August this year. In spring 2019, the junior collections will be available in top wholesale stores across Europe. The range will initially not be available in the JACK & JONES retail stores.

Lindex unveils Art Meets Fashion collection in collaboration with eight young artists

Lindex unveils Art Meets Fashion collection in collaboration with eight young artists

 

Sweden, 2018-Feb-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — In a unique collaboration with eight young artists, Lindex presents “Art Meets Fashion” — an inspirational and expressive fashion collection that merges two different art forms.

The collection is based on contemporary art created by eight young artists on behalf of Lindex. Using their individual tools and methods of expression, each artist created one original artwork on the theme of celebrating women. Inspired by this unique artwork, the Lindex design team interpreted the pieces and used them as an interesting starting point from which to launch their design process.

These artists have a strong creative force and a fantastic ability to portray and pay tribute to women through the medium of contemporary fashion. They have provided interesting perspectives and woven in references to our chosen theme, which they have portrayed in different ways. A common aspect of all eight art works is that they are visually strong, expressive and contain a myriad of colour, just like our fashion collection, says Pia Ekholm, Design & Buying Manager for Womens’ wear at Lindex.

Women are important to Lindex, which is why the fashion retailer is dedicated to empowering and inspiring women in different ways and wants women to be able to take their place in their world while expressing themselves. Through “Art meets Fashion”, Lindex wants to create wearable garments for women who wish to affirm themselves and their personality through expressive fashion.

The art purchased by Lindex will be sold at an exclusive vernissage. The money will be donated to HERproject, a collaborative initiative that strives to empower women who earn a low income salary working in global supply chains.

The unique collection “Art Meets Fashion” will be available in selected stores and at lindex.com as of 8 March 2018.

Macy’ launches Verona Collection a modest clothing brand

 

The modest clothing brand, featuring fashionable and modern dresses, pants, cardigans, tops and hijabs will be available on macys.com on February 15

NEW YORK, 2018-Feb-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Macy’s (NYSE:M) today (Feb. 1, 2018) announced the launch of Verona Collection, a modest clothing brand and 2017 graduate of The Workshop at Macy’s, the retailer’s minority- and women-owned business development program founded in 2011. Available on macys.com beginning Feb. 15, Verona Collection will feature a curated selection of versatile, ready-to-wear pieces including dresses, tops, cardigans, pants and hijabs in a variety of colors and fabrics.

“Verona Collection is more than a clothing brand. It’s a platform for a community of women to express their personal identity and embrace fashion that makes them feel confident on the inside and outside,” said Lisa Vogl, founder of Verona Collection. “Macy’s has been an amazing partner, helping us strengthen the foundation of our business through The Workshop at Macy’s and now introducing our brand to their consumers through this collaboration.”

Inspired by her personal experience looking for fashionable and modest clothing, standout pieces include maxi dresses, versatile cardigans and hand-dyed hijabs. Accented with asymmetric buttons, the maxi dress is a modern take on a timeless classic and cardigans come in sleeveless and full sleeve styles for layering-look options. The hijabs are hand-dyed in versatile fabrics making them perfect for any occasion.

“Through The Workshop at Macy’s, Lisa shared her vision to create a collection that speaks to a community of women looking for a solution to their fashion needs,” said Cassandra Jones, senior vice president of Macy’s Fashion. “Verona Collection offers a unique and understated elegance through everyday essentials designed for versatility and comfort, and through our partnership, we can better serve our customer looking for modest fashion.”

The Workshop at Macy’s is conducted annually and represents a foundational element of Macy’s commitment to vendor diversity. May 2017 marked the seventh year of the program, as well as the continued creation of a viable pipeline of enterprises that will grow to become successful partners with Macy’s, Inc. and other retailers.

“Through The Workshop at Macy’s, we want to nurture and support minority- and women-owned businesses to build their capabilities and become the next generation of retail partners,” said Shawn Outler, Macy’s executive vice president – Licensed Businesses, Food Services and Multicultural Initiatives. “We are truly encouraged by the successes of our graduated businesses, including Verona Collection, and look forward to hosting a new class of participants this spring.”

Macy’s has long been recognized for its commitment to fostering the promotion, growth and development of its vendor resources. In 2016, Macy’s purchases from minority- and women-owned businesses totaled more than $1 billion – surpassing the billion dollar mark for the third year in a row, including purchases from The Workshop at Macy’s graduates.

Verona Collection ranges in price from $12.95 to $84.95 and will be available on macys.com beginning February 15.
