I would like to extend immense thanks to all our customers and staff who made this possible. Together, we are supporting the vital efforts of these organisations for children and young people in need.

We’ve had a great reception in the new markets, and many requests to launch Newbie in more countries.
Claes Meldgaard, Vice President Sales Kappahl

The Newbie story started 10 years ago, with the company offering more sustainable clothes for babies and children. Now Newbie operates in 5 countries, and we are always working to grow. We are proud that we can now offer Newbie’s fairytale world in clothes, interiors and wallpaper, and hope that this will be well received by our #Newbielovers. Without Newbie’s faithful fans, we could never have got this far
Desiré Westerberg, who is director of KappAhl’s Kids division
Newbies saga startade för 10 år sedan genom att erbjuda mer hållbara kläder till baby och barn. Idag finns Newbie i fem länder och vi arbetar ständigt med att utveckla oss. Vi är stolta över att vi idag kan erbjuda Newbies sagovärld i kläder, inredning och tapeter, och hoppas att detta ska mottas väl av våra #Newbielovers. Utan Newbies trogna fans hade vi inte kommit så här långt.
Desiré Westerberg, direktör för affärsenheten Barn på KappAhl
This spring’s Limited Edition will hit stores just as we are starting to dream of the perfect spring wardrobe. The collection is influenced by retro sport styles, combined with a more preppy look. We have challenged the classic base of the collection with new volumes and peppy colours, to create a wonderfully fresh spring look
Karl-Wilhelm Björk, designer at KappAhl
KappAhl’s activities in the full year 2018/19 have been marked by intensive work to meet hard competition and declining footfall. They were also characterised by development to adapt to the industry’s transformation, in both the short and long-term
Elisabeth Peregi, KappAhl's President & CEO
t feels fantastic to know that we are meeting the high bar that we’ve set for KappAhl and that our Responsible Fashion sustainability strategy really is making a difference. Making the production of denim more sustainable will lead to significant resource savings and is a cornerstone to building a more sustainable wardrobe.
KappAhl’s Head of Sustainability, Fredrika Klarén.
Loungewear and kay/day are based on a phenomenon more than a trend. Rest and relaxation, a mindfulness about the need to tune out, chill and make time for reflection in a fast-paced world. With kay/day, the emphasis is on soft and gentle materials and colours
Sophie Lilja Angin, Head of Design and Purchasing in the lingerie and homewear department
Every garment in the collection makes its own contribution to more sustainable fashion. By using more sustainable materials, smarter technologies and making use of surplus and salvaged materials, we have created an inspiring and wearable collection. The garments are also easy to style, creating a wardrobe that is made for the long haul
Mia Nyman, KappAhl’s design and purchasing manager for Woman.
We are very proud to be supporting Bris’s vital efforts in a fundraiser with our customers
Charlotte Högberg, coordinator of KappAhl’s donation to Bris
Newbie is growing rapidly in popularity. In order to meet the great demand while we start to establish ourselves outside of London, we embark on a summer tour by bus. We have let ourselves be inspired by KappAhl's* founder Per-Olof Ahl, who in the 1950s went out on the roads when demand for KappAhl was greater than the supply of store premises.
Camilla Wernlund, Newbie’s International Expansion Manager
After the close of the first quarter of the financial year we see that KappAhl performed better than the industry in all sales markets. Sales increased by 2.4 per cent compared with the previous year, but the slowing consumption meant a continued high tempo of costly sales activities
Peter Andersson, KappAhl's acting CEO aswell as CFO
At KappAhl, we want to contribute to better, safer lives for all children. Round Up helps us and our customers to help by simple means.
KappAhl’s Head Corporate Communications, Charlotte Högberg
Sales for the quarter started cautiously but gradually increased. Attractive campaigns and an efficient supply chain have contributed to fewer clearance sales and a sound gross margin.
Göran Bille, acting CEO at KappAhl
In our fifth store in the UK we introduce several exciting new features - both in terms of events and inviting like-minded brands
Camilla Wernlund, Vice President New Business at KappAhl, who is leading the Newbie Store expansion.
We are committed to continuing to play an active role in driving the system changes that need to be made in our industry. With the SAC, we can harmonise our approaches to sustainability with other players in the industry, enabling us to pull together and make a greater difference.
KappAhl’s CEO, Danny Feltmann
Modern, flexible payment solutions – both online and in stores – are part of our aim of developing a seamless KappAhl.
Charlotte Katz, Head of Digital at KappAhl
Every way of shopping at KappAhl should be integrated. Online and physical stores aren’t different channels; they’re two parts of the same KappAhl. The customer chooses, we deliver. Because there is always stock online, this means that items are never sold out in stores, either,
Charlotte Katz, Head of Digital at KappAhl
Newbie has grown in step with our customers’ unbelievable engagement. It is now truly exciting for us to establish Newbie Store in one of the world's leading fashion capitals, London.
Camilla Wernlund, responsible for Newbie and Vice President New Business at KappAhl
This collection is a real bullseye: fashion-forward, and in sustainable materials
Maria Segergren, KappAhl's Vice-President, assortment and design
The second release of our Limited Edition collection combines high-fashion looks with sustainability, reflecting our own fashion ambitions moving forward
Maria Segergren, KappAhl's Vice-President, assortment and design
The quarter started cautiously but picked up towards the end. An aggressive market contributed to a higher percentage of discounted sales, which had a negative impact on the margin. Despite this, determined work on our new range strategy and pricing and campaign strategy has led to yet another good quarter.
Danny Feltmann, president & Ceo
With Limited Edition, we want to create a slightly sharper wardrobe that still has a classic feel. The pieces have straight lines with feminine touches. This is a new thinking collection that we can’t wait to launch. I’m so excited about wearing the pink coat and lace maxi dress
Maria Segergren, KappAhl’s vice president for assortment and design
In the second quarter of 2016/2017 our continued clarification of the collections together with our price and campaign strategy contributed to increased sales of 6.5 per cent compared with the previous year, of which the increase in comparable stores was 1.9 per cent.
Danny Feltmann, President and CEO
Lovisa’s idea for smart clothing is both spot on and an inspiration to us at KappAhl. We work hard to find creative solutions that promote more sustainable fashion consumption. And this is just what Lovisa has done in our competition, with her design for multifunctional dresses
Maria Segergren, KappAhl’s vice president, assortment and design
By creating a garment that can be used in different ways and in different situations, you extend its lifespan. In a playful and creative way, we can actually make a smarter choice for our environment and future. Sustainability is as simple as that
Lovisa Malmberg Gomis
Access to more sustainable fashion is an important issue. Whether as producers or consumers, we must all help to close the loop for our clothes. We need more sustainable materials and more sustainable production methods, and the clothes need to be collected in again once the consumer is finished with them.
Maria Segergren, Vice President of Assortment and Design at KappAhl
The “Feel” concept kicks off a long-term project, which is intended to position KappAhl and create increased clarity and relevance for our target market. It feels particularly good to be launching ”Feel” with Paulina Porizkova, because she is a strong and self-confident natural beauty who provides a metaphor for the Feeling that we want to communicate
Joakim Holmstrand, Marketing Director at KappAhl
I like the black trousers that I wore for the campaign! I took three pairs home with me, but wish that I had taken them all. They fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable. Particularly
Paulina Porizkova

Danny Feltmann, President & CEO

Charlotte Högberg, Head of Corporate Communications
An important part of our plan for KappAhl is to develop strong brands and make them available to more people.
