Zara offers customized denim in Europe pop-up storesBusiness | 13 Mar 2019 8:46 pm
Zara will launch a service to embroider names onto denim clothing in Europe this month, latching onto a customisation trend which has seen shoppers able to create their own Levi's jeans or design their Nike sneakers instore, Reuters reports.
Sneakers and jeans makers like Adidas, Nike and Levi's have been offering customisation for several years, where customers can add their own modifications to clothes and shoes. Although it's considered a hot trend, it hasn't brought much in the way of revenue so far.
Pop-up customisation corners in three Zara stores in Amsterdam, Barcelona and Milan will embroider words on 13 different denim designs from a 19.95 euro pair of shorts to a 39.95 euro jacket from March 27, the company said today.
Customers of Inditex-owned Zara in Italy, Britain, Holland and Spain will be able to order personalised items from the ranges online for delivery or pick-up instore in an initial roll-out to test demand, a company spokesman said.
