Pepe Jeans London Targets Rs 2,000 Crore Sales in Two Years

Pepe Jeans London, renowned for its denim legacy, has set its sights on the burgeoning Indian market with a colossal target of reaching Rs 2,000 crore in sales within the next two years. This ambitious goal positions India as the brand’s second-largest market, surpassing the sales figures in Spain and the UK. The driving force behind this surge is the mounting demand from the youth demographic, propelling Pepe Jeans’ rapid ascent in the Indian fashion landscape.

Presently, 58 percent of Pepe Jeans’ business emanates from the top eight cities, with the remaining share coming from Tier II and smaller towns.
