A few days ago I was surprised to see that some brands were sister/daughter companies of H&M. Little did I know! So I went looking for all the brands H&M Group owns… Be surprised.
H&M (Hennes & Mauritz) (ofcourse)
Our favourite retail-clothing company, known for its fast-fashion clothing offerings for women, men, teenagers and children.
It has over 2.300 stores in 43 countries and as of 2011 employed around 94.000 people! It is ranked second largest global clothing retailer, just behind Inditex (parent company of ZARA) and leads over third largest global clothing retailer GAP Inc.
COS (Collections of Style)
The business idea here is the same as for H&M: fashion and quality at the best price BUT in a higher price segment. COS is modern, urban and chic.
COS offers a combination of high fashion content and timeless pieces for both women and men.
Monki stands for personality, independence and creativity. A place where young women can find fashion, accessories and a store concept in a complete world of its own. It’s a little bit more alternative than the H&M stores. There’s also more attention to the interior of the shops.
Weekday sells ranges including its own brands Cheap Monday and MTWTFSS Weekday, as well as designer collaborations with independent fashion creators such as Carin Wester and Bless. Weekday’s all about distinctive urban fashion for girls AND boys. At the best price, ofcourse…
The collections of Cheap Monday blend influences from street fashion and subcultures with catwalk style. It offers jeans and other garments with a high fashion content at very low prices… Everyone has owned/owns a Cheap Monday jeans, right?
