Here´s a fun source for watching “the street.”!
An excellent insight and overview! Must read…
“Known affectionately around the Aldo headquarters simply as ‘Mr. B,’ Bensadoun’s entrepreneurial journey is one we can all learn from. He developed an end-to-end vertically integrated business model from scratch, focused on offering special, up-to-date products in the latest trends and styles, at affordable prices, all before the term ‘fast-fashion’ was even coined. Indeed, like H&M and Zara in the apparel sector, Aldo has made a name for itself around the world as a lightening-quick designer, manufacturer and retailer of fashionable shoes, moving product from concept to store in 12 weeks or less.”
The model of India raises an interesting question about when “Made in China” could be acceptable in the luxury market.
For some reason, I find the most interesting thing about this to be that the Google engineers are watching sci-fi movies for inspiration. Circular culture.
