Financial Highlights

Group Strategy

The vision of HUGO BOSS is to be the most desirable fashion and lifestyle brand in the premium segment of the global apparel market. The Group is convinced that further elevating the desirability of its two brands, BOSS and HUGO, represents the most important factor for the Company’s long-term success.


Three strategic priorities intended to drive future growth

Create brand heat and product desire
From a brand perspective, the Group’s key objective is to drive brand heat and elevate the desirability of BOSS and HUGO in the long run, in particular among younger customers. The brands’ marketing initiatives focus on three pillars in this regard: highlight events to emotionalize the brands, strong partnerships with influential personalities, and exclusive collaborations with appealing brands and businesses. Fully exploiting the global trend towards a more casual lifestyle forms another key element with regard to driving brand desirability. Further pushing the casualization of its business model – across brand, gender, and wearing occasion – will therefore remain a top priority for HUGO BOSS while also continuing with breaking up the boundaries between casualwear and formalwear.

Exploit global sales opportunities
To drive growth across all sales channels, HUGO BOSS aims to fully utilizing its omnichannel capabilities developed over the past years by connecting all customer touchpoints into a seamless, consistent customer experience as well as further digitzing all respective touchpoints. In doing so, HUGO BOSS aims to resolutely exploit all sales opportunities in the years to come. Continuing the success story of its online business and fully leveraging the Group’s potential in mainland China are of particular importance for HUGO BOSS in this regard.

Drive operational excellence
From an operational perspective, HUGO BOSS constantly aims to develop and implement best-in-class solutions to ensure efficiency and flexibility along its entire value chain. This includes, above all, further optimizing the Company’s sourcing structure without compromising on product quality. In addition, digitizing its business model offers HUGO BOSS various opportunities for sustainably increasing customer value and for improving efficiency and flexibility – from digital product development to implementing digital elements in wholesale and retail distribution.
