India witnesses growth in Kidswear retail

Brinder Rault - 30-avr.-2019 12:44:37
The kids’ fashion segment has registered the fastest growth in the last year. In 2017, the Indian Kidswear market was estimated at 67 000 crore INR (€ 858 Mn) and accounted for 20% of the apparel market share. This segment is expected to growth at 8.1 % to reach 145 445 crore INR (€ 1.9 Mds) in 2027. Boy’s wear is slightly capping girl’s wear (53 % of the market share). Kidswear market in India is benefiting from the same consumer habits changes witnessed in the adult wear. Parents are more “brand aware” and incline to spend money for child’s apparel since they are more concern by their own appearance and the trends. The growth of nuclear families (along with social recognition) has given more purchase power to the family, with parents willing to buy the trendiest cloth for their child. E-commerce plays a crucial role in this growth by increasing accessibility all over the country. µ Another growing segment is “infant wear” dedicated to the age-group new-born babies to 4 years old kids. This segment has huge opportunities considering that India is home to an estimated 120 million babies from 0 to 4 years of age.   Looking at consumers behaviour, one finds that parents are well informed: they demand quality and ethical products, respectful of their child and the environment. The coming years would probably witness an increase of organic wear and materials that are sourced from fair-trade. The kids themselves are considered as consumers by the brands. These latter target children at an early age, playing with their centre of interests, presenting children in their advertisement campaigns to create a sense of belonging and make them chose their own apparels.

Jacadi is a French children’s boutique specialising in authentic and timeless children’s fashion and nursery items. Jacadi interprets traditional French dressing, continually adapting to the spirit of the times and seasons as with their summer collection which was showcased during the store launch. The range boasted of fresh and joyful colours, each capsule of colour amalgamated in trendy and bold prints. Sheetal Sharma, a well-known fashion choreographer, hosted the store launch on behalf of the luxury brand. Mothers and their kids were the guests of the themed summer carnival event; the mothers were taken through the summer collection and given the opportunity to dress their children in their choice of clothes. The children were entertained with a number of games that had French elements; for e.g. Pin the donkey’s tail had a French twist wherein the children had to find Paris by pinning the Eiffel Tower on a world map etc. The summer collection was the highlight of the event, casual cotton pieces perfect for school or play with sun hats, swimsuits, socks and booties in a rainbow of cheerful colours took everyone’s breath away. The cute quotient rose with the display of every garment; liberty prints in bright blue hues and cotton linen essentials in neutral colour palettes with pops of playful iridescent trims. The collection is elegant, fashion forward in style and expertly crafted with an element of delight and surprise. Hand stitched smocking; ruffled accents showcased the brand’s attention to details. The ballet flats and open toe sandals are dressed up and dazzled with details like bows and scalloped trims, the classic loafers and moccasins for boys perfectly complemented the range of suits and dressy separates that were available in the collection.

The strength of the collection comprised of retro shapes, the new line of sweat shirts for boys, broderie anglaise and a chic sporty line for girls.

Mrs. Veena Satish, CEO Raavee House of Chic, added, ‘when my daughter was born, I received a Jacadi gift set from a friend, after that I’m afraid there was no turning back. I noticed a gap in the market when it came to children’s clothing; it was difficult to find branded kids wear that was superior in quality and in design. We’re very excited about bringing Jacadi to Bangalore,  many of our customers have expressed their gratitude and are looking forward to improving their children’s wardrobes’. A mother who attended the event, commented, ‘ I loved the collection, their designs are very tasteful and great attention has been paid to details. My kids were ecstatic when I asked them to try on some of their clothes.’ Jacadi is indeed a brand that has been deprived from our market.
