“Pepe Jeans London has been growing aggressively in recent years not only through organic growth but also by selling deeper in our existing markets and by expanding into new territories,” said Bart Denolf, International Director at Pepe Jeans London. “On one side the focus remains on Europe where the brand is already well established and where we will continue to invest in statement-making flagship stores in every key city. Additionally, we are working intensively on our expansion strategy into newly emerging markets.

Starting life on the streets of London’s Notting Hill in 1973, it didn’t take long before the capital’s most trend-savvy hipsters were flocking to Portobello Market to lay their hands on a pair of the most in-demand jeans of the day, Pepe Jeans London. Indeed from its origins as a market stall to a global fashion force, Pepe Jeans London is now launching in Pakistan.
