Italy´s severe


economic recession has had a major negative impact on apparel sales in Italy with a strong decline in domestic sales and consumption during the period 2008 to 2012. High unemployment coupled with a rise in VAT from 21% to 22% and low consumer confidence has plagued the Italian apparel market over recent years.

On average, it is estimated by ISTAT that Italians spend on average EUR142 per month on apparel, a figure which has declined to EUR126 per month by the end of 2012. This represents a drop of 13% in terms of average expenditure on apparel in Italy.
