Concept and style[edit]

  • It focuses on casual, laid-back clothing and accessories for young people with a very urban style, at acceptable prices. The stores themselves are designed as vanguardist spaces that are attractive to their target market.[4]
  • Heavy use of graphic elements and text on clothing, much of it referencing the United States or the United States popular culture. However the clothes are not sold in the US, nor delivered to the US if bought on-line.
  • Pull&Bear is enjoying rapid international expansion as a result of their fashion philosophy which aims at merging creativity and quality design with a swift response to market demands.[5]
  • New product lines introduced in stores have diversified the range of products available in Pull&Bear outlets. These new lines include; music, technology, video games and video images mixed in with the clothing. Pull&Bear introduced the "XDYE" line in 1998, a more sporty and hi-tech line of clothes linked to the icons of 21st-century youth culture.
  • This brand introduced the new collection named Class Wear with the famous milanese model Mathieu Zannoni.
