Fast Fashion is ultra-performance

Although ethical fashion is a hot topical subject, and influencers feel concerned by questions around sustainable development, the report shows that the success of ready-to-wear brands does not weaken.

Spew strategies in this category are particularly effective in their approach to influencers.Consumers want more eco-responsible fashion, but also want to have access to affordable clothing and collections of items renew continuously.

En France, Zara, H&M et Asos figurent parmi les 10 marques les plus influentes en 2019.They generate a large volume of mentions, and each benefit from high quality content put online by influencers with whom these brands associate. L’année dernière, en France, Zara, H&M et Asos ont été mentionnées par environ 4 300 influenceurs de plus, que les marques de mode contemporaine ou de luxe.

Contemporary brands target their audience thanks to mid-influencers

In France, mid-range fast fashion brands are doing well, compared to the United States.They succeed in leaving the game by identifying and targeting the influencer category which brings them the most added value.The contents, mentioning these brands, having the most echo, are mainly posted by influencers with an average audience (mid-influencer).

A brand like The Kooples has a large number of fans that are part of this type of influencers.For example, Jess (105,000 subscribers, average engagement rate of 6 %) mentioned The Kooples in its publications, seven times a month for a year.It is therefore she who, of all the influencers who mentioned the brand in 2019, obtained the scoring the highest for these contents.The example of this influencer perfectly illustrates how much the performance of a brand can greatly benefit from an influencer on duration, rather than a punctual collaboration.

"Interest around responsible fashion has increased considerably in recent years and is currently at its highest level, with influencers and the public.There is, however, a gap between the intention and action of consumers. En Europe, les marques de prêt-à-porter prospèrent, ASOS, H&M et Zara occupent les premières places en terme de nombre d’influenceurs les mentionnant», a déclaré Pierre-Loic Assayag, PDG et co-fondateur de Traackr.

"According to our benchmark, lives, it is these brands that are most successful on social networks, attracting influencers of different sizes.Contemporary fashion brands, on the other hand, impress medium -sized influencer profiles that remain faithful and assure success.»»
