La spinta del digitale nel settore del lifestyle

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 11 luglio 2019

Si attesta tra i più importanti in Italia: secondo l’ultima ricerca netRetail di Netcomm in collaborazione con Kantar, nell’ultimo anno oltre la metà degli eShopper italiani ha acquistato prodotti nella categoria fashion (54%), superando l’elettronica di consumo, che detiene una quota del 51%; il 44% dei consumatori online italiani ha acquistato prodotti di bellezza e cosmetica e il 16% mobili e oggetti di arredo e design. La chiave vincente nell’esperienza di acquisto online dei consumatori italiani è la consegna: 1 italiano su 4 vorrebbe poter cambiare data e orario di consegna, scegliere il sabato e la domenica come giorno di ricezione del pacco e indicare una data e un orario preciso di consegna.
Sono queste alcune delle evidenze emerse durante la terza edizione di Netcomm Focus Fashion&Lifestyle, tenutosi a Palazzo Mezzanotte. I consumatori italiani chiedono alle aziende del fashion consegne ecosostenibili, personalizzate e possibilità di reso immediate. Dalla ricerca netRetail emerge, infatti, che i giovani italiani di età compresa tra i 16 e i 24 anni hanno particolarmente a cuore il tema green: il 39% di loro vorrebbe poter scegliere opzioni di consegna a ridotto impatto ambientale e il 53% desidera ricevere pacchi già pronti per essere restituiti in caso il prodotto non soddisfi le proprie esigenze. Esigenze sempre più specifiche quelle degli italiani che comprano online: il 25%, infatti, vorrebbe poter cambiare orario e data di consegna, scegliere giorno e orario esatti e ricevere i propri ordini a casa sabato e domenica.
Sempre secondo la ricerca di netRetail, il primo touchpoint utilizzato per acquistare abbigliamento, calzature e accessori è rappresentato dalle recensioni online per il 39% dei consumatori; al secondo posto il sito proprietario del brand per il 29%; al terzo posto, per il 23% dei clienti, il passaggio in store; al quarto posto, per il 22%, l’app del retailer e le piattaforme online. La finalizzazione dell’acquisto avviene prevalentemente sui marketplace, dove oltre la metà dei consumatori online italiani (quasi il 60%) compra prodotti fashion. Il successo dei marketplace è dovuto alle maggiori capacità di digital marketing che possano offrire un efficace mix tra prezzi vantaggiosi, migliori promozioni e varietà di scelta dei prodotti, che sono i principali driver di acquisto rispettivamente per il 51%, 43% e 29% dei consumatori italiani.
Più di un terzo della popolazione mondiale acquista abbigliamento online: nel 2019 il numero di eShopper nel mondo che acquista prodotti nel fashion raggiunge oltre 2 miliardi e 451 milioni, in crescita dell’11% rispetto allo scorso anno. Entro il 2023 saranno 3 miliardi e 363 milioni i consumatori che sceglieranno di acquistare capi di abbigliamento online, +37% rispetto al 2019. Il fatturato online del fashion a livello globale cresce costantemente: nel 2019 vale 346 miliardi e 256 milioni di €, in crescita del 13% rispetto allo scorso anno. Entro il 2023 questo settore varrà saranno 509 miliardi e 376 milioni, +47% rispetto al 2019.
In Italia la quota di acquisto online di abbigliamento passerà dal 6% nel 2018 al 9% nel 2023, mentre in Cina dal 52% nel 2018 al 65% nel 2023. Il mercato cinese del fashion online vale più del doppio di quello europeo e statunitense: in Cina si registrerà una crescita annua del 12% nei prossimi 4 anni, passando da 247 miliardi di dollari nel 2018 a 431 miliardi nel 2023, mentre in Europa del 7,5% passando da 102 miliardi di dollari nel 2018 a 147 miliardi nel 2023; negli Stati Uniti dell’8%, passando da 103 miliardi di dollari nel 2018 a 146 miliardi nel 2023[3]. Nel 2019 il 33% dei consumatori nel mondo acquista abbigliamento attraverso canali digitali, il 27% acquista calzature e il 19% accessori. Percentuali che sono destinate a crescere entro il 2023, quando quasi la metà degli acquisti di abbigliamento (44%) avverrà attraverso canali digitali.

The Anglet contemporary art international biennial unveils its program

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 aprile 2016

la littoraleFrom 26th August to 2nd November 2016, La Littorale #6 offers a journey through monumental works created by artists of several different nationalities installed in emblematic locations: La Barre, the Izadia ecological park, the seafront and its green spaces as well as La Chambre d’Amour.
The sixth Anglet-Bask Coast contemporary art international biennial has been named La Littorale, a name chosen to anchor this cultural event geographically. This time the event’s artistic direction has been entrusted to writer and art historian, Paul Ardenne. With La Littorale #6 the new curator wants “selected artists to question the tensions and contradictions to which shores are now subject. This are in fact places that are sought after for the gentle lifestyle they offer as much as for being physical frontiers, limits, political spaces, bringing together stakeholders often with very different interests.” Anglet adds to these aspects the idea of an “ecological Eden, in grandiose natural surroundings”. The biennial thus restates its character as an open air exhibition, with wide open spaces for expression, where priority goes to themes linked to the complexity of the coastline: A leisure time seaside resort, a frontier contact area, a fragile rapidly evolving ecological space.

Breastfeeding reduces the risk of suffering allergy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 13 ottobre 2011

Hives on DLdoubleE's back from an allergic rea...

Image via Wikipedia

Barcelona/Zurich, Today, about one in four European children suffer from allergy, which makes this disease the non-infectious epidemic of the 21st century.Evidence suggests that lifestyle factors and nutritional patterns, such as breastfeeding, help to reduce the early symptoms of allergy. The detection and reduction of the early causes of childhood allergy is the major topic at the 2nd EAACI Pediatric Allergy and Asthma Meeting (PAAM 2011) that opens today in Barcelona.There is no doubt that the exposure to allergens, both in food and the environment, play a role though the exact significance of dose and timing is not yet fully defined. According to Prof. Halken,PAAM 2011 Chair “there are some hypotheses suggesting that specific lifestyle and nutritional patterns may lead to early symptoms of allergy. For example, breastfeeding for the first 4-6 months has been showed to reduce the risk for atopic eczema and cow’s milk protein allergy”. The development of allergy is a result of a complex interaction between genetic and many environmental factors that may protect against or promote its development. Factors such as pollution have also been linked to the increased prevalence of allergic diseases during childhood in developed countries.
The expression of allergic disease may vary with age, and some symptoms may disappear being replaced by other symptoms. As Prof. Halken says, “infants typically experience atopic dermatitis, gastrointestinal symptoms and recurrent wheezing, whereas bronchial asthma and allergic rhinoconjunctivitis are the main allergic symptoms in childhood”. In that sense, allergic reactions to foods, mainly cow’s milk protein, are the commonest manifestation in the first years of life, whereas allergy to inhalant agents mostly occurs later in childhood.
EAACI – The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology is a non-profit organisation active in the field of allergic and immunologic diseases such as asthma, rhinitis, eczema, occupational allergy, food and drug allergy and anaphylaxis. EAACI was founded in 1956 in Florence and has become the largest medical association in Europe in the field of allergy and clinical immunology. It includes over 6’800 members from 107 countries, as well as 41 National Allergy Societies. Throughout 2011, EAACI will develop different activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of immunotherapy in Allergy, which will aim at increasing the knowledge in this field among healthcare professionals, increase awareness in the general population, and finally, promote the availability of immunotherapy for allergic patients.

Consultation on Poverty

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 10 novembre 2010

Budapest.  In the opening speech of the conference H.E. Metropolitan Emmanuel of France, President of CEC, stressed that: ‘”Economic liberalism that was self regulatory before, has arrived at the limit of its expression… There is a crisis of values that places man in front of his own responsibilities, as a person in relation and as a person in relationship.” Churches cannot stand outside of this process, there is active role that churches have to undertake in responding to challenges coming to us from the society we are living in. “We have to promote the development of a new lifestyle, while getting rid of the pressures of the economy and consumerism; we must focus on an ethics of responsibility for our life, conducive to sustainable development.  Faith and works are intimately related,” underlined Metropolitan Emmanuel.  During its opening day, the conference was adressed by Mr Imre Nyitrai, Deputy State Secretary in the Ministery of National Resouces of the Hungarian government. In his presentation, he outlined the strategy of the Hungarian government for addresing poverty. Mr. Nyitrai stressed that there is a close link between employment and poverty. “Particular attention has to be given to child poverty and to do all that is possible to stop the intergenerational transfer of poverty.”  A strong social engagement of the churches is expected. “In particular in contributing to social services, in helping victims of natural disasters and in providing necessary education,” emphasised Mr Nyitrai.
In the theological elaboration of the theme of the conference, Prof. Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, Univertsity of Bamberg, concluded: “It is not only the Bible but also the teachings and great traditions of our churches that speak a clear language concerning the very moral basis of economic activity. The goal of economy is for a just participation for all members of society.”
