Executive Summary

Mar 2019
Retail recovery benefits apparel and footwear sales

The apparel and footwear industry has benefited from the nascent recovery in Hong Kong retail, starting from the end of 2017. Unlike the previous jump in retail sales from 2010 to 2014, which was driven by the strong buying power of visitors from mainland China, this time, growth was achieved thanks to more positive local consumer sentiment.

Wants from fashion, from millennials to Generation Z

Hong Kong’s Generation Z, a generation that values comfort, function and exclusivity, demands unique apparel and footwear to represent their own personality and lifestyle. Unlike millennial consumers, who favour functionality and adopted fast fashion, Generation Z consumers need something unique for them to share on social media across Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube.

Sustainable fashion rise cools demand for fast fashion

The concept of ethical fashion has been widely implemented in apparel and footwear. From a no-fur campaign led by Gucci to the newly launched pineapple leaf fibre vegan shoes of Hugo Boss, brands are trying hard to alter their product design and composition to incorporate ethical fashion.

Physical retail channel reforms as sales go online

Since the slump in rental rates in 2015, fast fashion brands such as Uniqlo, Bossini and H&M have implemented an aggressive strategy to boost retail sales in Hong Kong, namely expanding the number of their physical retail stores. This move has resulted in overexpansion with tonnes of unsold apparel and footwear products left over in 2017.

Trade war hinders retail recovery

The US-China trade war is hindering the recovery of retail sales in Hong Kong. Considering the uncertain economic status, industry players are being cautious in regard to 2019 growth while celebrating the success of 2018.
