英国“剑桥包”公司获得香港私募基金投资,计划开拓中国市场

Feb 29, 2020

中国市场能拯救衰落的剑桥包吗? 据外媒报道, 以“剑桥包”闻名的英国皮具品牌 The Cambridge Satchel Company(以下简称“剑桥包”)宣布获得来自香港私募基金 Cassia Investments 的一笔投资,具体金额尚未披露。Cassia Investments 的创始人 Faris Ayoub 已加入 The Cambridge Satchel Company,担任公司董事。 Cassia Investments还曾投资过中国风奢侈品牌 Shanghai Tang(上海滩)、日本服装零售商 Evisu,团队表示将帮助剑桥包进一步开拓亚洲、特别是中国市场。 目前中国、韩国、日本等亚洲国家正在遭受新冠肺炎疫情。据波士顿咨询公司和联博最新调查显示,疫情将使全球奢侈品牌的销售总额面临高达400亿欧元的损失。不过,在疫情结束后,亚洲仍将是全球范围内最具增长潜力的市场。 剑桥包公司由创始人Julie Deane和其母亲于2018年在英国剑桥成立,启动资金仅有600英镑。Julie一直在为孩子们寻找耐用的书包,希望它是“哈利和赫敏在霍格沃茨会用的东西” 。色彩缤纷的手工皮革书包都是以牛津和剑桥的原始书包为原型的,本意也是给孩子们上学用的书包,没想到却在年轻的时尚博主中掀起了风潮。 2010年,剑桥包被《纽约时报》誉为“British It Bag(英国IT包)”,当年众多名人、明星和意见领袖都选择了这款标志性的斜挎皮包,剑桥包开始在两大英国购物网站 ASOS 以及Urban Outfitters上销售。2011年开始,Julie建立自有工厂,全面掌控产品质量和生产效率,每周生产3000多个剑桥包并销往全球56个国家,品牌始终保证每一件作品都源自英国纯手工制作。 到2012年底,公司成立的第四个年头,Julie才最终决定在伦敦市中心开设第一家剑桥包实体店。截至目前剑桥包也仅在英国有5家独立门店,销售渠道主要以网络及各大百货商场为主。美国著名歌手Taylor Swift也曾是剑桥包的拥护者。 但剑桥包品牌近年来表现不佳。截止2018年6月的2017/2018财年,The Cambridge Satchel Company 税前亏损150万英镑,营业额同比下降4%,至1120万英镑。该公司已连续第四年出现亏损,销售额和利润率双双下降。 The Cambridge Satchel Company曾在去年表示,目前正把重点转向中国市场,并已在中国建立了电商业务,同时还推出了专门的品牌网站。但就目前情况来看,剑桥包还未在中国市场掀起什么新的波澜。 原创文章,作者:梦悦。转载或内容合作请点击  转载说明  ,违规转载法律必究。
