HCMC – The first store of Cotton:On, an Australian clothing and accessories brand, will be launched in HCMC on November 15, marking an addition to the list of international fashion brands present in Vietnam.
Covering an area of nearly 400 square meters, the first store of Cotton:On Vietnam will be located in Vincom Thao Dien in HCMC’s District 2.
Cotton:On was founded in 1991 with the first store being launched in Geelong, Australia. The Cotton On Group owns seven brands, including Cotton:On, Cotton:On Body, Cotton:On Kids, Rubi, Typo, Supre and Factorie with over 1,400 stores in 18 countries. Aiming to expand its global presence, Cotton:On chose Vietnam as its next destination.
James Lavdas, a representative of Cotton:On Australia, said that Cotton:On is an international fashion brand with the simple Aussie style. With the growing demand for street style and casual outfits in Vietnam, Cotton:On expects its products to satisfy local consumers.
The Australian brand was brought to Vietnam by Au Chau Fashion and Cosmetics Co., Ltd (ACFC).
Further, ACFC will launch the second Cotton:On store on November 26 in Hanoi-based Aeon Mall Ha Dong.
Founded in late 2010, ACFC, a subsidiary of Imex Pan Pacific Group, whose chairman is Johnathan Hanh Nguyen, specializes in bringing international brands to Vietnam, including premium fashion, travel and sports brands, such as Nike, Gap, Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Levi’s and Old Navy.
