Mall Owner Rick Caruso on Pandemics, Protests, Getting America Shopping Again

“You know what, we’re back,” said Los Angeles retail real estate impresario Rick Caruso, surveying the smaller-than-usual but not insignificant crowd on a recent weekday afternoon at The Grove, which reopened June 10. “We’re back,” he repeated for emphasis, eyes gazing out at his kingdom over a businesslike black face mask, while sitting at an outdoor table at a sushi restaurant.

Since 2002, The Grove has been a center for a city without one, drawing more visitors annually than Disneyland, who flock to the open-air shopping area and faux Main Street with dancing fountain and an old-time trolley ride, where fireworks blaze on the Fourth of July and it “snows” in sunny California at Christmastime.

After closing in March because of the coronavirus, The Grove was due to reopen June 1, but the plan was scrapped May 30 when the Black Lives Matter protest arrived on its doorstep. “It was … Read More

Congratulations are due to Emma Watson on her new side hustle. The activist and Little Women star is the newest appointee to Kering’s board of directors.

Watson is one of three new appointees; the others are Jean Liu, president of Didi Chuxing, often described as China’s Uber; and Tidjane Thiam, a former Credit Suisse boss.

Online fashion stocks in vogue as coronavirus speeds ecommerce

By Emma Thomasson

BERLIN (Reuters) – Shares in online fashion retailers Zalando and ASOS jumped on Thursday after the German company said it expects a big increase in second-quarter sales and operating profit as coronavirus lockdowns accelerate a shift to ecommerce.

The growth rate of online fashion looks set to triple this year to account for 23% of European sales in 2020, levels not expected before 2024 prior to the pandemic, analysts at Bernstein said, adding the market share could hit 37% by 2030.

“The sudden closure of all apparel retail stores across all major global markets has shaken up the channel mix in an unprecedented way this year,” said Bernstein’s Aneesha Sherman. “(It’s) five years’ worth of growth achieved in about six months.”

Zalando, Europe’s biggest online only fashion retailer, said late on Wednesday it expects to significantly beat market expectations for 16% second-quarter revenue growth and an adjusted

The aim is to ensure that sustainability remains top-of-mind for the consumer.

The introduction of the online tool, which will allow consumers to see the impact of specific materials in their purchases and the savings they are making if they choose to buy secondhand merchandise, was informed by a report examining the pre-owned market that was published by Farfetch in partnership with the London Waste and Recycling Board.
