Gant Latest News

Lifestyle brand GANT plans a more sustainable future
Lifestyle brand GANT has decided to initiate additional measures for a more sustainable future. Around 80 per cent of its collections will be sustainably sourced and labelled this year and by 2022, all its cotton will be sustainably sourced. By 2025, it will halve its water use in manufacturing and sustainably source all its key materials, the company said.
 By 2030, it will reduce its climate footprint by 30 percent throughout all operations, the company said on its website.
 With a new global initiative, GANT has created seven rules to inspire and invite consumers to take joint responsibility to extend the life of their clothes: Rent, Reuse, Refresh, Remake, Repair, Regive, and Recycle.
 The brand is inviting people to learn how to give their clothes a longer life as well as using more sustainably sourced materials to increase the speed of transformation that the industry needs.
GANT are continuing expansion in GCC
American lifestyle brand, GANT – part of LIWA Trading Enterprises in the region – recently opened in Kuwait’s 360 Mall, in line with its expansion roadmap for the GCC.

Situated in the mezzanine floor of the new expansion of the mall, the new store spans over 1,200 sqft and offers apparel for men. The store opening also marks the launch of GANT’s SS20 collection.

The store concept reflects GANT’s seasonal messaging through styled looks, expo podiums, product talkers and lifestyle product presentations. Wall and furniture treatments canvased in shades of grey create a backdrop for the classic GANT blue on the textiles and are further broken up by a mix of darker and lighter muted tones.

The palette lining the new store is inspired by American sportswear and includes bold and vibrant yellow, orange, red, green, blue and pink. The high summer palette combines playful pastels with lots of crisp white, grounded by a washed-out darker navy and sun-faded yellow.

Gant launches rental service
The small collection of 10 pieces will be available from May in Gant’s Regent Street flagship in London, and at least one store in each of its international territories.

Customers can rent an item for three days for 20% of the retail price. At the end of the period they will have the option to pay the remainder of the price to keep the item. Products will be available in sizes extra small to large for women and small to large for men, and pieces include pants, jackets, dresses, shirts and blouses. 

“It’s limited and so should be a bit of fun. For example, there is a pair of lemon-print pants.” Gant’s global sustainability director, Jessica Cederberg-Wodmar told Drapers. “It’s a way of introducing the customer to something new. We think the UK market is ready and we want to continue and grow it.”

A second collection will launch in October. 

The move is part of Gant’s new sustainability initiative: The 7 Rules by Gant. These rules – rent, re-use, refresh, remake, repair, regive and recycle – aim to educate consumers on garment care. 

For “re-use”, later this year Gant will reintroduce 14 archive pieces, profits from which will be donated to clean water charity WaterAid. Gant will also pay the listing fee for customers who wish to resell their clothes through a selected resale platform.

The brand has launched garment care advice on its website and will run in-store workshops to help “refresh” items. Customers will be offered life-long repair on any jeans sold in 2020.  In an effort to reduce waste, Gant has created a limited edition of upcycled shirts made from leftover fabrics. It will hold remake events in stores globally. 

Customers will be able to bring any item in store for the Gant team to recycle. In October and November, customers will be offered a reward for doing so. 

In December, Gant will “regive” to the ocean by making a donation for every holiday-season purchase to clean oceans charity Waterkeeper Alliance.
Cederberg-Wodmar said: ”We believe that sustainability is the foundation for a profitable business. It’s more than a trend now and is something that is business crucial. I count everybody within Gant as part of the sustainability team.”

Alongside these new initiatives, Gant has also announced sustainability goals. It will ensure 80% of its collections will be sustainably sourced by 2020 and its cotton is 100% sustainably sourced by 2022. Water use in manufacturing will be reduced by 50% before 2025. Additionally, Gant will reduce its climate footprint by 30% throughout all operations by 2030.
