2018 Denim Trends At DPV

November 30, 2016 Leave a comment

Despite various controversies surrounding the trade shows clashing each others’ timings, the DPV held on Nov 5 and 6 at Paris – with the first Paris returned edition – went off well with decent attendance , though there have been many opinions on this issue. Many exhibitors were quite happy with the visitations and return to Paris , while many other felt that it could have been better . The next edition will again happen on April 26-27 and it will again be a tightly packed schedule with  shows in Amsterdam and NY also happening closely .

Premium Vintage Market

A new concept of Vintage Denim Market was initiated by DPV and some very authentic and vintage garments specially in denim were brought out by the Denim Boulevard ( Murio and Antonio). With many garments and accessories over 100 years old , it was a treat for most of the visitors with most of them shooting the looks while others lapped up the vintage apparel as they were on sale. We interviewed Murio and Antonio on the kinds of vintage apparel they were displaying and some of them were just mind blowing.

Kassim Denim | Pakistan

Kassim introduced the 38oz jeans and which has  been claimed as the world’s heaviest denim by the company. Technically a very difficult weight to achieve and to sew, it added a feather to the cap of the company. Further the company introduced two major innovations at DPV

  • They launched the first indigo fabric made with a 3-D printer which is a perfect blend of use of ancient technique of Indigo dyeing and future technology of 3D printing . It is made with TRT, a polyester resin. This specific material is made with made out of recycled plastic material, it is biodegradable, highly flexible and breathable. It can be used for five-pocket jeans while it can also be aged and treated as regular indigo denim. In the future, Kassim is also working on to develop stretchable 3D.

  • They also launched a special microchip that can be attached to jeans and can trace position, body movement, body temperature, humidity, medical information and many other information of its wearer. It can track the wearer anytime from anywhere with the use of technology.

How Frequently Do Millennials Transact via Mobile?

November 21, 2016 Leave a comment

 

9% of respondents said they conduct transactions via mobile a few times per year

November 21, 2016 | Retail & Ecommerce | Demographics | Mobile
  • Millennials frequently use their mobile devices to pay for things, but concerns about identity fraud or security may be stopping more from transacting this way. August 2016 research found that though many millennial smartphone users in North America and the UK do transact via mobile—whether every day or a few times per week—there are others that only do so once a month or a few times per year.

Frequency with Which Millennial Smartphone Users in North America and the UK Conduct Transactions* via Mobile Devices, Aug 2016 (% of respondents)

Mitek, a mobile capture and identity verification provider, surveyed 3,010 smartphone users ages 18 to 34 in North America and the UK and found that some millennial internet users conducted transactions via mobile more frequently than others. For example, a quarter of respondents said they conducted mobile transactions, including purchases, at least once a day. And 29% said they did so a few times per week.

Meanwhile, one in five said they used their mobile device to pay for things once or twice a month, and 9% said they only did so a few times a year. Just 10% said they never conducted transactions via mobile.

Barriers to Conducting More Transactions/Purchases via Smartphone According to Millennial Smartphone Users in North America and the UK, Aug 2016 (% of respondents)

Even though the vast majority of millennials are transacting this way, they have several concerns about doing so. Nearly half of millennial smartphone users in North America and the UK said their concerns about the security of their data were a barrier to conducting more transactions via mobile. And just as many respondents said they were worried about identity fraud.

Some 20% of respondents felt that there were too many steps in the process, and overall, many mentioned that the mobile experience was not good enough to transact via. In fact, more than a quarter felt that the mobile user experience isn’t as good as the desktop experience, and 19% felt that the mobile user experience isn’t good as the in-person experience.
