Pleaser USA recently informed its UK customers that it has reduced the number of its authorised wholesalers for the UK and Ireland to two, though stock can still be bought direct from Pleaser USA as well. The two authorised wholesalers are Kevco Wholesale and Digimedia Solutions. The message went on to say: “All other prior wholesalers of our products in the UK and Ireland are therefore unauthorised and will no longer be permitted to resell our products to retailers, be it an online store or a physical store. We hope this appointment will help preserve the brand image and reputation of Pleaser USA, the perceived premium value of its products, as well as to protect the interests of its resellers who have invested resources into services for their customers.”
Kevco is well known to ETO readers but Digimedia Solutions might be a new name. Its trade-only website can be found at www.woosexy.co.uk and the firm offers dropship and wholesale of all Pleaser USA brands and products to the trade.
Three of the most recent lines taken on by Digimedia Solutions which, according to the firm’s Shalom Yaes, have met with a terrific response are Adore 710GT, Domina 108, and Delight 652. The Adore 710GT [pictured] is a platform ankle strap sandal available in bronze glitter/bronze tinted and it sports a 7” stiletto heel. It is available in UK sizes 2-9. Domina 108 is a wrap around knotted strap sandal with a 6” stiletto heel and it is available in UK sizes 2-13. Delight 652 is a two-tone peep-toe criss-cross platform sandal with contrast fishnet panels and a 6” stiletto heel. This is available in UK sizes 2-11.
