The Générale pour l’enfant group (GPE), founded by Paul Zemmour, is a French leader in children’s fashion. It comprises 3 brands:

Du Pareil au Même

Created in 1986, Du Pareil au Même brings a breath of fresh air to children’s fashion with colorful clothing, iconic prints, and excellent value for money.


Natalys is the French leader in baby and toddler fashion. Founded in 1953, the brand is constantly reinventing itself in order to be as close as possible to the needs of families and continues to remain faithful to its values: authenticity, innovation and excellence.

The 3 brands now enjoy worldwide success due to high quality clothing and attention to detail, where each design highlights the values of the group.

Integrate marketplaces into your e-commerce strategy to reach more consumers

In 2021, the group decided to change its e-commerce strategy and chose a channel that it had never used before: marketplaces.

In addition to the websites of its 3 brands, GPE aimed to diversify and harness the full potential of marketplaces to reach more consumers and therefore increase its sales.

Neteven to launch quickly on Zalando

The group's objective was to include as many products as possible to start selling as quickly as possible, a real challenge knowing the difficulties associated with integration on marketplaces.

The management of numerous data flows as well as the lack of time and knowledge, led the group to call on the expertise of Neteven.


Outlook : new marketplaces in GPE's e-commerce strategy
