NEWS Rohde Returns to its Roots


Both Rohde and HB Shoes are delighted to announce that they have confirmed a new distribution agreement for the Rohde brand in the UK and Ireland commencing July 1 2019. “Having worked with the Rohde brand for more than 20 years I am


delighted to be able to reconnect with the new Rohde ownership, but still so many of the original team in Schwalmstadt Germany,” said Justin Morgan, the current owner and Managing Director of HB Shoes and former Managing Director of Rohde UK from 2003 – 2012." “Many of the original Rohde distributors have reconnected with Rohde’s


new Italian owners who have invested heavily in the brand. This includes a full in-stock service as well as product innovation. We are very aware that there were some challenging years for the brand during its various ownerships, however, inblu have brought stability to the structure; retained the team in Schwalmstadt Germany whom we know so well, and brought


reliability to the Rohde brand once more. The international distributor network is just a rekindling of past friendships - most of the original team are now back together." “Consumers still want Rohde products, and due to my long association with the brand, retailers have approached me over the years to once again work with them on Rohde. With changes that have taken place in Europe the time is now right for us to distribute the brand again. “We have made our full SS 20 selection, but will have access to Rohde’s


extensive AW 19 stock programme, details of which will be mailed over the coming weeks. Rohde’s previous distribution network and consumer demand in the UK and Ireland was enormous, and we look forward to rebuilding the confidence of both retailers and consumers over the coming seasons.” Full details of Rohde’s new collection, sales network and exhibiting plans will be circulated shortly."

By combining state-of-the-art 3D technology with the latest-generation leather cutter, CAPRICE is further digitizing model development.


CAPRICE puts digital production line into operation From the first design idea to the finished shoe in just a few hours.


The shoe manufacturer continues to invest in the German headquarter and thus drives the automation of its own model development and production ahead. In order to be able to produce faster and more cost-effectively in the


future, CAPRICE inaugurated a digital production line at its in-house research and development centre in Pirmasens Germany earlier this week. This is made possible by the concatenation of 3D design and printing, last scanners, a fully automated photo studio, cutting plotters, and a digital leather cutter of the latest generation. Existing lasts, soles, heels, and shoe accessories can be scanned and modified to be subsequently printed as a new 3D model.

Meanwhile, the entire design process is carried out completely digitally, before a cutting table cuts out the desired items from all kinds of leather, which are then further processed into the finished shoe. "It is essential for us to continuously implement new technologies


in all areas of the company in order to further increase our high-quality level. With the commissioning of the digital production line, we now have the opportunity to develop our collections on site in real time and to produce special series, "says Jürgen Cölsch, Managing Partner of CAPRICE. The company invested a high six-figure amount in the plant.
