Chantal welcomes Marc Cain

The internationally successful fashion company, Marc Cain, was founded in 1973 by Helmut Schlotterer, the Chairman of the Board.

MARC_CAIN

Today Marc Cain is a globally operating premium brand for ladies’ fashion with its own production facility in Germany. Marc Cain manages its global business from the head office in Bodelshausen. To further safeguard the brand’s competitiveness, between 2007 and 2014 around 82 million euros were invested in administration and manufacture, as well as research and development. The latest investment object is a logistics centre with an automated warehouse, completed in 2015. The complex measures about 100 by 74 metres and is 18 metres high. A total of 35 million Euros were invested. The company meanwhile employs over 992 members of staff in Germany alone. 211 Marc Cain Stores, 291 Shop-in-Stores, 395 Custody customers and another 998 upmarket specialist retail stores in 58 countries characterise the selective distribution strategy. New Stores and new Shop-in-Stores are currently in the pipeline.

Philosophy

Marc Cain advocates the philosophy:
“The collection is the Star!”

Marc Cain combines a sense of aesthetics and art with a laid-back attitude, a natural look, innovative thinking and exclusivity.  Marc Cain is a declaration love to a woman.

What kind of woman is she? She lives in the moment, is self confident, open-minded and and curious. She loves being a woman and expresses herself by what she is wearing- naturally and as a matter of course.

Marc Cain stands for innovative thinking. High expectations on design, quality and material as well as the latest processing technologies and the perfect fit are the company´s credo.

All product lines of the labels Marc Cain Collections, Marc Cain Sports, Marc Cain Essentials, Marc Cain Additions and Marc Cain Bags & Shoes reflect the spirit of the time in their very own way and classiness. It is the kind of fashion which always makes a difference but never betrays its principles. Distinctive and unmistakable.

The idea of “Coordinates”, in other words the ability to variously combine pieces of clothing, serves as a guideline. With this idea Marc Cain does not simply mean the perfectly harmonized outfit but the subtle meeting of apparently different components. Opposites are finding each other and thus result in a picture. A thereby created tension forms a new definition of the term “look”- the Marc Cain look.

HISTORY

The Oui story is one that has been told for over a half century already!

More than 50 years ago, the Gottesdiener family laid the foundation for a family business. In the metropolis of Munich, the business started to blossom during the period of economic upswing.

Today, the business exports to more than 30 countries around the world. It is undoubtedly one of the more successful brands and enterprises of the european fashion industry boasting double-digit growth rates.

Now, in 2014, the company has more than 1,000 points-of-sale in Germany with just as many abroad and is being managed by the third generation of family members.
