2027: Which Retailers Will Win as Inflation Bites? Don't Be Fooled. It's a Tech Race.

Tom Summerfield, Retail Director at Peak joins me on Tech Talks Daily to discuss how he has helped retailers including B&M, Nike, and ASOS to stay ahead of the curve. We discuss why retail survival in the current climate is likely to boil down to the tech they have at their disposal. we also explore the impact of inflation on retailers and how best to manage this against shrinking costs. In the coming months, Primark won't be the only retailer fighting to be competitive as inflation squeezes margins. For the first time, we're going to see a divide opening up between the haves and the have nots; those with the tech in place to adequately manage yet another catastrophe in a sector already hit hard by supply chain distribution and fluctuating demand. However, the battle ground won't just be operational efficiency (as big as it is), stock availability and convenience will be increasingly crucial. Shopper behaviours have changed post-pandemic, and are likely to again as inflation bites and consumers downgrade their choices. Demand forecasting is a struggle for many right now, and this could push them to breaking point. If retailers don't have the right stock on their shelves at the right time, they'll see once loyal customers voting with their feet. Artificial Intelligence is being leveraged across the value chain to tackle pain points that include demand forecasting, stock optimisation, allocation and distribution resource planning which are increasingly important in a high inflationary environment.

 Amazon is limiting how many emergency contraceptives consumers can buy, joining other retailers who put in place similar caps following the Supreme Court decision overruling Roe v. Wade. Amazon's limit, which temporarily caps purchase of the contraceptives at three units per week, went into effect on Monday. The company did not share further details on what emergency contraceptive products were limited for purchase, but a listing showed the cap applied to Plan B, the popular “morning after” pill. A similar policy went into effect Monday at the drugstore chain Rite Aid, which has limited the purchase of Plan B pills to three units per customer due to increased demand. The limit applies to both in-store and online purchases. Emergency contraception is different from abortion pills used to end a pregnancy. Plan B, which can be obtained without a prescription, contains a concentrated dose of the same drug found in many regular birth control pills. If a woman takes Plan B within 72 hours of unprotected sex, she can lower the risk of pregnancy significantly. But if she's already pregnant, the pill has no effect.

After years of analyst anticipation that the leg-squeezing silhouette would soon go out of style, market research firm NPD Group found sales for the skinny jeans fell behind straight leg jeans in 2021. Skinny jeans are far from dead though — still accounting for 30 percent of sales. Retailers have already felt the effects of the shift: Pacsun pulled the style from its stores because no one was buying it.  “It really just speaks to the changing of the times and how styles are evolving within fashion,” said BoF correspondent Chavie Leiber.     Key Insights:  Skinny jeans are no longer the most popular denim silhouette, according to data from NPD Group. But, that doesn't mean no one is buying them.  As consumers come out of the pandemic, they don't just want comfort. Shoppers are either skewing toward raw denim with no stretch or athleisure and leggings — but jegging and stretch denim styles occupying the in-between have started to fall to the wayside.  The world is in the midst of a “denim Renaissance,” says Marie Pearson, senior vice president of denim at Madewell, who added she's never seen so many different types of fits and shapes selling.     Additional Resources:  The Style That Finally Dethroned Skinny Jeans Why Skinny Jeans Will Never Die Fashion Drives New Denim Momentum     Join BoF Professional today with our exclusive podcast listener discount of 25% off an annual membership, follow the link here and enter the coupon code ‘debrief' at checkout.  Want more from The Business of Fashion?

BoF's Tamison O'Connor explains how the fashion industry is betting on resortwear as consumers return to their pre-pandemic lifestyles and travel rebounds.  Background:  Every spring, top fashion clients, influencers and insiders are whisked away to lush destinations like Monte Carlo and Capri to indulge in fabulous dinners and cocktail parties — and sneak a peek at brands' resort collections. Resortwear, which began as a way for luxury houses to cater to wealthy, travelling clients halfway through the main season, now represents so much more as a meaningful driver of sales for retailers.    “It's really attractive for the true luxury customer who sees these items as a fun way to accessorise a holiday, but it's also an entry point for more aspirational and younger consumers,” said luxury correspondent Tamison O'Connor.   Key Insights:  As consumers start travelling and treating themselves again, luxury is betting big on vacation dressing.  Resortwear stands apart with more casual designs, lighter fabrics and lower prices. Brands aren't just using these collections to attract travellers and true luxury consumers, but also to snag wealthy domestic clients and appeal to aspirational buyers. Retailers are picking up on opportunities to engage wealthy consumers by building buzz with events and activations surrounding resortwear online and in stores. Big brands are opening more stores and pop-up markets in vacation towns.  Luxury doesn't expect growth in the segment to slow, even amid global economic turbulence, travel restrictions in China and skyrocketing inflation.   Additional Resources:  Luxury Seizes the Vacation Dressing Boom  Loewe's Brand Within a Brand: Is This the New Way to Do Diffusion?  How Fashion Is Targeting the Travel Rebound      Join BoF Professional today with our exclusive podcast listener discount of 25% off an annual membership, follow the link here and enter the coupon code ‘debrief' at checkout.  Want more from The Business of Fashion?
