Lee Cooper is expanding to non-metros and upping its online presence as womens wear and children’s wear sales flourish. The brand’s main customer base is men but it has recently seen a surge in women’s and children’s’ wear segments, points out Hetal Kotak, CEO, Future Lifestyles Fashions. Kotak says the women’s line has got an exciting response with the brand being by far the best accepted in key premium retail chains like Central and kids range is doing exceptionally well across all channels like Lifestyle and Central.
The denim label has a presence in over 150 Indian cities including metros like Bengaluru, Mumbai, and New Delhi and most business comes from department stores. As for its plans to expand to rural areas, Kotak says, the company plans to rapidly grow its EBO presence across select markets.
