Bringing Cola to China

In 1927, John Hartman decided to bring X-Cola to China, seeing a potentially large market of softdrink lovers. Since he did not speak the local
language, he decided to advertise his product through pictures. On every corner in Peking [that was it was called at the time] he put up three
pictures. The first showed a man dying of thirst alone in a desert place. The next one to the right showed the same man drinking X-Cola. Third one on
the right-most showed the man rejuvenated, full of energy and crossing the desert.

He waited a couple of weeks, but his cola did not sell. He decided to seek the help of a Chinese advertising consultant. The man said, “In this
country , people read from right to left”.

SMCP Opens 100th Store in Mainland China

MORE IN STORE: While retailers around the world settle into retrenchment mode, SMCP, the owner of Maje, Sandro and Claudie Pierlot, is on a different track, opening its 100th shop in China, with plans for more.
Store number 100 is a Maje boutique in the Chaoyang Joy City mall.
“It’s gone by very quickly in mainland China — our first store opened at the end of 2013 — it hasn’t been five years yet,” said chief executive officer Daniel Lalonde in a telephone interview.
The French company is controlled by Chinese textile conglomerate Shandong Ruyi Group and was listed on the French stock market last October, a move intended to fund debt payments and fuel international expansion.
Despite the fast-paced growth, the company still counts fewer stores than other luxury brands in China, added Lalonde, noting that Sandro and Maje each have around 45 stores. At just over 1,000 square feet, the stores are typically smaller than those of larger luxury labels, he added.
“We’re a little bit at the beginning of the story,” noted Lalonde who has plans to have as many stores in greater China as has in France, which counts nearly 500, within the next five to seven years.
The brands are sold on Tmall, and since last

What to Watch: Ralph Lauren’s 2018 Game Plan Focuses on China, Digital and Wholesale Improvements

As Ralph Lauren Corp. prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, the company continues to make progress on its turnaround plan.
Under chief executive officer Patrice Louvet, who joined from Procter & Gamble in July, China remains a top priority. The company looks to build its Chinese business, which represents the most significant geographic growth opportunity for the brand. Other major initiatives this year include further developing its new e-commerce platform; evolving the product; increasing the marketing spend significantly to tell the brand’s story and appeal to a new generation of consumers, and growing its international presence.
In its most recent quarter ended Sept. 30, Lauren posted net income of $ 143.8 million on net revenues of $ 1.66 billion. In disclosing second-quarter results in November, Louvet said the focus on driving “efficiencies” will continue through the rest of the [fiscal] year,” and “we are on track to deliver our full-year targets.”
Over the past two years, Lauren has elevated the brand in Asia and built a strong foundation there by improving quality of sales and overall profitability, Louvet told analysts during November’s call. Interestingly, only 13 percent of the company’s overall business is conducted in the region.
In fiscal 2017, the company generated about

Vera Wang Celebrates Chinese Heritage and American Upbringing at China Institute’s Blue Cloud Gala

BIG IN CHINA: Vera Wang and Ron Perelman were among the honorees at the China Institute’s annual Blue Cloud gala Thursday night.
The gathering at Cipriani’s lower Broadway location in the Cunard Building was meant to center on the Institute’s commitment to advancing understanding and deepening trust between China and the U.S. Ning Yuan, chairman and president of China Construction America, and Robert Hong Xiao, chief executive officer of Perfect World Co. Ltd. were also honored, as well as New York Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wasn’t able to attend the black tie dinner.
Beforehand, China Institute chairman Chien Chung Pei, better known as “Didi,” said of the honorees, “They share the spirit and mission of China Institute to shape positive and strong U.S.-China relations through education, culture and business.”
Derek Lam also turned up to support Wang. She later told the crowd how growing up in the U.S., her parents Cheng Ching and Florence Wang encouraged her to embrace American culture, never allowing her to forget her Chinese heritage. That delicate balance was what provided her and her brother “with such a unique view of the world and a sincere appreciation for both cultures,” she said.
Noting how the world she once knew has
