LONDON — Everybody wants a slice of China’s booming luxury and fashion market, especially after the coronavirus put a stop to many businesses around the world.

It’s indeed fascinating to hear stories about how loyal Chinese consumers would queue outside Chanel and Hermès stores moments after the pandemic was contained and spend a record-breaking sum of money on high-price items, and how Burberry’s 100 limited-edition Pocket Bags in collaboration with Mr. Bags sold out within seconds on his WeChat mini-program.

McKinsey predicts Chinese consumers will account for 40 percent of the world’s luxury spending by 2025, but the growing demand is likely to be trapped in the country until 2021 due to pandemic disruptions. Because of this, China’s retail market is expected to overtake the U.S. and become the world’s largest as early as this year.

The COVID effect on work fashion in Charlotte

John J. Gibson

High heels? No thanks. Pants with zippers? So 2019. In the age of quarantine and remote working, comfort is king in the Queen City.

Like nearly everything in life, Charlotte fashion has been turned on its head during the COVID-19 pandemic. With Zoom calls replacing meetings, couches replacing conference rooms and Netflix replacing nights out, business and formal attire are becoming as passe as handshakes.

LONDON — Farfetch is forging ahead with its sustainability commitments and introducing a “fashion footprint” tool to help customers better understand the environmental impact of their purchases — and to highlight the benefits of buying pre-owned.

The introduction of the online tool, which will allow consumers to see the impact of specific materials in their purchases and the savings they are making if they choose to buy secondhand merchandise, was informed by a report examining the pre-owned market that was published by Farfetch in partnership with the London Waste and Recycling Board.

The report looks at the growth of the pre-owned market in the U.K., the U.S. and China., key consumer behaviors, as well as “displacement rates,” or the extent to which shopping pre-owned reduces the demand for new-season items.

“The
