The advantage of pop culture is that it directly affects the affect of wearers. Each of them will associate the characters you have chosen to a memory of childhood or adolescence and will thus tend to crack for the models you propose. This can also be a focus of discussion with your customers, directly in the shop. It's a good choice if you're looking to stir up emotion!

3. Expand your offer

Surfing pop culture is also a great way to expand your offering and reach new carriers. It is also a good axis of differentiation . The prospect of finding this type of product at home may push them, in fact, to favor your shop, compared to those of your competitors.
