Bags & travel retailer Duifhuizen goes cross-border

OUD-BEIJERLAND (THE NETHERLANDS), 2017-May-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Duifhuizen, specialist retailer of bags & travel items, has made its range more accessible to international customers. Apart from its 26 brick-and-mortar shops in The Netherlands and its two online shops, duifhuizen.nl and duifhuizen.be, the retailer has now also gone live with an English online shop: www.duifhuizen.com. They expect to attract potential customers from all over the world and to offer country-specific content in future.

OPPORTUNITIES

Duifhuizen can see plenty of cross-border opportunities. “We’ve noticed a continuous rise in our customers from abroad”, says E-commerce manager Mark van der Stokker. The English online shop was set up in order to better serve those customers. In preparation of the launch, thorough research was done on the shop’s target audience. Additionally, the procurement department continuously looks for specific brands and products that are of interest to international consumers.

A CHANGE OF NAME

Recently, all Duifhuizen online shops have had a big make-over. The design and functionality of the English online shop are near-identical to the Dutch online shop in order to keep the same look & feel. However, there has been a small change in name. For the international audience, the retailer has changed the name Duifhuizen tassen & koffers to Duifhuizen bags & travel. “Duifhuizen is a tricky name to pronounce for those who do not know the Dutch language. We didn’t want to make it any more difficult by adding tassen en koffers. ‘Bags & travel’ rolls off the tong a bit more easily”, Mark explains.

COUNTRY-SPECIFIC CONTENT

By launching duifhuizen.com the retailer focuses on customers from around the world. “In future we’re looking to focus more on country-specific content. We know where our visitors are coming from and have the means to provide them with targeted content on the moments that count”, Mark says. “Take Mother’s Day for example. This day is celebrated earlier in the UK than it is in The Netherlands. On the English online shop we’ve timely adjusted our content in order to offer the English customer the best service at the most relevant moment.”

AMBITION

The first step for Duifhuizen.com was to be more accessible for the international customer and it achieved that goal, the retailer says. Mark: “From this point on we have the possibility to further explore our options, such as expanding our range of local payment and delivery options in a way that is most convenient for our international customers. Additionally, we will try to interact locally and overcome the obstacles on our path in terms of logistics. It’s easy to see there are still plenty of challenges ahead. But we’re ready to face them, one by one.”

Wallis has announced its collections for Autumn/Winter 2011

The womens fashion company continues the paired down trend during the autumn/winter season with ’60s Modernity’, offering a strong modernist take on the 1960s. Architecturally tailored pieces such as the three quarter length coat, long lined tunic and the flood length trousers create clean lines in futuristic shapes. Unexpected colour clashing on a pallet of electric blue, ginger and black are blended on fabrics of denim, tweed and leather, while prints on knitwear pieces provide stark contrasts. Favourite pieces from the story include the ankle grazing two tone trouser and the leather T shirt, which makes a welcome return this season with fur trim sleeves. Accessories are kept simple to complete the minimalistic look, with snakeskin adding texture.

The ‘Babington House’ collection offers masculine tailoring and historical referencing, combined to create a quintessentially English collection with a nod to the 1970s. Russet hues blend with peach and camel while colour blocking of muted tones remains important. Ali MacGraw inspired T dresses in autumnal shade colour clashes add retro glamour to the collection. Culottes and flared cords are key trouser shapes for the season, creating fluid lines in intrepid colours of berry and burnt orange. These can be paired with a pussy bow blouse and a snug sweater vest or velvet blazer to complete this feminine silhouette. Hero items include the tweed belted trench coat and the berry Afghan faux fur coat. Accessories could include a fedora with a feather in the brim and a patent ladylike tote for 1970s chic.

This autumn/winter, the womens clothing company also pays homage to Alexander McQueen with the ‘Gorgeous Gothic’ collection in a story that evokes Gothic glamour. Leather and chiffon fabrication come together throughout the collection to create dramatic effects. Black mink and soft smoke lilac are blended for vintage boudoir feel. The silhouette is lean; sheer fabrics and contrasting hem lines create a provocative response, while pleats and tucks soften the look and create floaty elegant lines. Victoriana boots laced to the knee are teamed with outerwear favourites including the opulent beaded cape or the midnight black faux fur coat to complete the look.

All products will be available on-line at wallis.co.uk including a fantastic range of shoes, belts and bags to accessorise outfits for all occasions.

Topshop Reveals the Looks of Autumn Winter 2011

Topshop has launched four new looks for Autumn Winter 2011 with its New Mod, Prim and Polished, Glam Underground and Bavaria collections.

New Mod is an updated and feminine take on the rebellious dressing of the teddyboys of the 1960s. Modern twists elevate sleek tailoring and clean shapes; slim cigarette trousers in a sapphire jacquard come in the season’s essential ankle-skimming length and a simple t-shirt shape comes in panels of monochrome silk. Be prepared for the unexpected as hybrid garments become key; a royal blue wool crombie has soft black leather sleeves whilst the classic sweatshirt is luxurious with faux fur sleeves. Prints are bold with polka dots and window pane checks splashed across chiffons and silks, whilst colour blocking features in ‘Dad’ sweaters with the occasional punky motif. A much more hourglass silhouette takes over from that of the boyish with semi bodycon dresses celebrating the waist and skirts predominantly in pencil or mid-calf length.

Mixing elements of the laid-back 60s with a neater finish from the 40s post-war Britain, Prim and Polished is an eclectic dressing-up box of girly vintage-inspired pieces. Dresses are ladylike in pretty florals and ditsy prints, appearing in a classic tea dress or drop-waist shift shape and look newest in mid-calf length. Again, skirts are longer in length, sometimes pleated or with side slits and look prim when worn with feminine peter pan blouses buttoned to the neck. Pretty detailing such as petal cutouts around the neckline, lace inserts and contrasting panelling create interest whilst elegant beading on dainty pouch handbags finish off the look. Colour is important; tapered trousers come in jade or tangerine and bright prints appear throughout, whilst the overall silhouette is soft and feminine.
