Report Summary

“2020 was a year of exceptional upheaval for retailers of clothing in France. Two periods of lock-down meant that specialists saw a drop of more than 23% in turnover, with online revenues only partially offsetting the loss in store-based sales. 2021 has remained challenging as curfews and other restrictions continued into the first half of the year. The distribution landscape is changing, with traditional groups collapsing and online retailers growing their market share. Ecommerce is shifting buying patterns – over half of adults had bought clothing online over the last year, with a third of those buying at Amazon.”
– Natalie Macmillan, Senior European Retail Analyst
