In the wake of New Zealand losing its two Topshop stores after just two years, Kiwis can now access the British brands clothing through The Iconic online store.
The Iconic, an Australian site, has been named the online seller for the brand. Adding to its portfolio of more than 700 brands and 45,000 products.
Mareile Osthus, chief of category management at The Iconic, says this will benefit Kiwis who can still have access to the brand.
“Topshop is very much known for being fast with the trends and really picking up styles from the runway and translating them into the Topshop Topman way, so for us it’s a really good addition to our trend assortment.”
Although not the only way to get Topshop items to New Zealand, the deal with the Iconic is their first Australian agreement which will likely translate to the brand looking closer to the New Zealand market.
In September, Top Retail, the company that operates the licence for the British brand in New Zealand, said its Auckland and Wellington stores had been placed in receivership.
Three weeks after announcing its receivership the stores had been cleared out and both locations were closed for good.
