Hackett focuses on international expansion

After opening a store on London’s Regent Street, British fashion brand Hackett is now focused on international expansion. The men’s fashion brand aims to open stores in Spain, Asia, South America and North America.

Hoping to invade America

Hacket hopes to enter the American market this year, with an 800 sqm store on Madison Avenue in New York. The men’s fashion brand also wants to put its products on sale in several large fashion stores, like Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s.

 

It will also open another 6 stores in China, where it already has 6 stores (4 in mainland China and 2 in Hong Kong) and has plans to expand into Barcelona, Chili, Venezuela and Peru. Currently, Hackett has 77 stores in 16 countries worldwide.
