Overview of the companies

GU

GU develops fashionable apparel for men, women and kids at amazingly low prices in Japan, harnessing UNIQLO's many years of experience as an SPA (Specialty-store retailer of Private-label Apparel).

As a result, GU has become a full-fledged apparel-making business, from product planning through design and manufacture, inventory control and production adjustment, all the way to store operation. This represents an entirely new business model for a company in Japan offering extremely low-priced clothing.GU had 197 stores, as of the end of February 2013.

Comptoir des Cotonniers

Comptoir des Cotonniers (CDC) women's fashion brand emerged from boutiques that opened in 1995 in Paris, and in Toulouse in the south of France. CDC, a uniquely inspired brand known for its quality fabrics and sharp silhouettes, designs timeless collections full of French esprit for the modern woman. The company had 383 stores (including franchise stores), in 12 countries including in Europe, Japan and South Korea, as of the end of February 2013.

Princesse tam.tam

Princesse tam.tam is a French corsetry, lounge wear and swimwear brand. After winning acclaim in 1985 for lingerie that featured original prints and bright colors, Princesse tam.tam opened its first store in the Montparnasse area of Paris in 1987. The brand concept made by women for women brings a new and different way to view lingerie: fashionable and with a French expertise.

Benefitting from the craftsmanship of France's corsetry industry, all the garments are made from the finest materials such as silks and cottons and crafted down to the smallest detail. Princesse tam.tam had 153 stores (including franchise stores), in 4 countries including France, Germany, Belgium and Japan, as of the end of February 2013.

PLST
