Posted November 11, 2018 17:50:03 The new year is a busy time for Israeli women’s apparel companies.
They’ve already launched the most anticipated line of women’s clothes in decades: the “sophistate” range, featuring dresses with cut-outs on the hips and skirts, which will cost about $300 each.
But it’s not just the high-end stores that are going to have to start thinking about the new year with a new look.
There’s also the more traditional women’s department stores like H&M and Nordstrom, which are going out of business.
These two retailers are among the biggest beneficiaries of a recent ruling by Israel’s Supreme Court that will allow retailers to start selling women’s lingerie.
The ruling, which took effect on Tuesday, allowed them to start accepting online orders and carry the goods for customers who want to shop on-site.
“It’s the first time a major Israeli retailer has allowed online sales,” said Avi Sela, the founder of Yedioth Ahronoth, an online publication that covers women’s lifestyle and fashion.
“They are going through a bit of a transition right now, and we’re really excited to see the next chapter of this evolution.”
Sela says it will be interesting to see how this will affect women’s shopping habits, but the new rules will also mean a shift in the way Israeli women shop.
“Now that it’s legal, they are going shopping on the Internet,” Sela told Wired.
H&M, which has been a popular destination for Israeli shoppers, announced it would close stores in the country in 2018, and Nord, a leading retailer of women-oriented clothing, said it was pulling out of the country altogether. “
But the women have also been able to buy clothes online, which is very much an extension of the shopping process.”
H&M, which has been a popular destination for Israeli shoppers, announced it would close stores in the country in 2018, and Nord, a leading retailer of women-oriented clothing, said it was pulling out of the country altogether.
“The women are going back to shopping with men and with men’s brands,” said Sela.
“I think we are going a bit more in the same direction with the clothes we will no longer be buying.
We will still be buying things from the big guys.”
In a statement to Wired, H&m said: “The Supreme Court decision on online shopping is an important milestone for women in Israel.
As part of its initiative to enable women to shop online, H+M is discontinuing online retail in Israel.”
“In addition, the company is committed to offering our customers with online shopping a range of products including fashion, accessories, home décor, and home improvement products, and will continue to work closely with the retail community to further enhance the online experience for women,” the statement said.
Nordstrom said it would also start selling online orders, and H&M will begin accepting online order requests from consumers, which means customers will now be able to get the latest arrivals from retailers online, rather than waiting for a delivery date.
But even as H&am said it will no long be selling online, it said it is working on a “small number of” online orders.
Meanwhile, Haniya, a fashion retailer based in the Israeli city of Kiryat Gat, is launching an online store to take over some of the responsibilities of its old-school stores.
The company said it plans to open three new stores in 2018.
The first is an online shop in Tel Aviv that will be open on the day of the Israeli Sabbath, but it will also sell other products like handbags, shoes, accessories and more.
The second will be in the northern Israeli town of Mea Shearim, where it will focus on women’s jewelry and accessories.
The third store will be located in the south of the city, in Haifa.
Haniyah said it had already received about 100 orders from customers looking for items like handbag bags, women’s boots, and men’s shirts.
For more than a decade, Haniah has been selling products in Israel through a network of independent retail shops, but Haniy said the new business model will allow the company to continue to sell in Israel even after the Supreme Court ruling takes effect.
“As of now, there is a big need to sell our products to consumers,” Hani ya said.
“We have the ability to do so.
We just need to start to sell more.”
