Gieves & Hawkes, an icon of men’s tailoring, opens an official flagship store on JD.com to establish an online presence in China. Gieves & Hawkes have dressed the likes of George V and Prince William. With the opening of an official flagship store on JD.com, Chinese consumers now have access to the brand’s exquisite tailoring suits and the convenience of Jingdong’s nationwide logistics network and prompt delivery service. Gieves & Hawkes is the fourth member company of Ruyi’s Trinity Group, a leading menswear group based out of Hong Kong, to open a flagship store on JD.com.
The other three member companies of Ruyi’s Trinity Group that have previously done so includes D’URBAN, an elegant Japanese men’s clothing brand that sells business and leisurewear; Cerruti 1881, a chic Italian men’s style brand; and Kent & Curwen, a consummate British menswear brand that has partnered-up with David Beckham, the United Kingdom’s mega soccer star.
Recently, JD.com has entered into a broad agreement with Ruyi’s Trinity Group that includes initiatives in the area of fashion tech and co-sponsorship of the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund. To celebrate the partnership between Jingdong and the Ruyi’s Trinity Group, there will be a “Trinity Group Brand Day” on Oct. 19 that features promotional events and online discounts for all Trinity brands available for sale on JD.com.
JD is Chinese version of Amazon and is China’s largest online retailer. JD.com started out as an online company selling only magneto-optical when it was founded by Richard Liu Qiangdong in 1998. However, JD.com in no time started to sale various electronics, such as mobile phones, computers, and similar items, and the online company, with Richard Liu Qiangdong’s at the helm, became China’s largest e-commerce retailer and a member of the Fortune Global 500. See This Page for additional information.
Jingdong, as the company is also known, also happens to be a publicly traded company, whose shares are traded on the NASDAQ under the stock symbol of JD. Richard Liu Qiangdong currently serves as the online Chinese e-commerce giant’s Chief Executive Officer.
