How has neteven helped cwf, a luxury and premium children’s fashion brand, boost its growth?

CWF, luxury and premium children's fashion for 50 years

An expert in children's fashion for 50 years, the story of CWF began in 1965 in the Vendée region (France). The company, then named Albert SA, originally designed and manufactured its own children’s fashion collections. In 30 years, the group has evolved its business model and now provides its expertise in children's ready-to-wear to other brands. CWF has also repositioned itself in the premium and luxury segments.

Each year, CWF designs nearly 55 new children's collections for the most prestigious international premium and luxury brands notably Givenchy, Lanvin, Chloe, Kenzo Kids, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld Kids, DKNY, Zadig & Voltaire, Boss, Aigle and Timberland.

 

Faced with the complexity of marketplaces, CWF chooses Neteven

Control digital distribution

In addition to its 2,500 points of sale worldwide, the group wanted to take advantage of digital channels and integrate them into its distribution strategy. To achieve this development strategy, CWF decided to partner with Neteven.

With a dual objective of notoriety and visibility, the group's ambition was to promote its brands internationally and test new markets, while maintaining control over its digital distribution.

Adapt to each marketplace

The company began its collaboration with Neteven in 2018 to reach the wide client base of marketplaces and increase its growth. Faced with the complexity of distribution on marketplaces and their specificities and rules in terms of catalog, price and stock, CWF needed the help of an expert. Adapting the group’s data and processes to each marketplace required the help of true experts.

This successful collaboration shows the benefits of the one-to-one support provided by Neteven: follow-up, support, simplicity and reactivity across the whole partnership are key assets that improve the work of the group’s teams, as they can rely on their Customer Success Manager.

What I like about Neteven is the simplicity of our dialog, which allows us to share our strategic challenges, and the fact of being listened to. Neteven always has solutions to address and solve our problems.
