LAS VEGAS — Even as men’s wear continues to show strength at retail, a heightened competitive mood permeated the trade shows here, with brands and buyers facing a mixed macroeconomic climate, a shifting retail landscape impacted by e-commerce players and the perpetual pressure to create new must-have trends and innovative product.
Even the shows themselves have turned increasingly competitive, with the MAGIC Market Week group of shows at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center — including Project, The Tents @ Project, Project MVMNT, MAGIC Men’s and Pool — vying for attention with the Modern Assembly band of shows at the other end of the Strip at the Sands Expo, which included Liberty, MRket, Capsule and Agenda.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
