C&A Mode AG in Apparel and Footwear

Company Profile

About This Report

Jun 2015

C&A Mode AG, the Swiss-based producer and retailer of the C&A apparel and footwear brand, is facing slowing market conditions in its domestic Western European market, as well as a slowdown in Brazil, its second largest market. Its comparative lack of scale makes competition with peers like H&M difficult, but it has achieved growth in Mexico and China by simplifying its brands and aligning it with youth, rather than family. It may need to adopt this strategy in Europe to retain momentum.
