5. augmented reality

Remco Vroom

Director Mobile Augmented Reality & CEO

TAB Worldmedia



mobile innovation

augmented reality

mobile goes faster than pc, smartphone, takes on fast, change behaviour of people


culture of availability

we depend on our phones

our shopping compagnion

usage, inspiration, prod info, compare prices, read consumer review, find stores, make purchaes

everyone is doing it

building an app it not enough

we expect more then info

use augmented reality, mix digital witj real world, happeing on, mobile, real world

everyone with iPhone. Android can use it


example Anne Klein, see thru camera of phone how a watch look like on your own arm

see product in 3d via phone in a mag, directly buy it


marketing apps, lots of info, go to a store, scan a poster, something happen, give extra premium/ reward

aurasma, M&S billboard

3d tech & gps, valuable info, market data

recognition, recognize people?, klik for iPhone, location


digital footprint, send a tweet/ also post location, tweeps around, look what others are twittering

socialmedia apps, give location, there is a whole new aura of digital content creates around yoru store, with AR you make it visible, foursquare, instagram

examples, example marktplaats, unibail rodamco, discover what stores are there, projection on, glasses, screen of car, see how buildings will look like in teh future (being build)


they epect more

need to be, actived, suprised

mobile moves fast

google glasses by end of year


about to size, tech is advancing, size are an issue online

huge disconnect

not all tech work

bridge, more accurate fit, still high returns, lacked on communications

problem, online size chart are not align with what the sell

solution, market fit, marketing & comms on fit

AR peoples location being sensitive?

can be seen by anybody

people do it themselve, foursquare, fb places

privacy of location, not storing dating, or track people

are people aware of what the send out, leaving a digitial footpint out for everyone to see

are these concepts actionable

AR will become a part of apparel

how do we get to harmonized fit/ standards for garments, can IAF play a role?

people lie on their measurements so hat wont fit

fit forms, differences are relative subtle, zara has 1 fit, 8 sizes, smales 5 in china, larest 5 in us, fit is not value proposition, its newness

IAF can play a role in fit forms

example levi's Cuve ID, #1 product launch all because of fit, if it wasn't for fit we didnt have women cusomers

4. how does the consumer get the right size in the shop?

Ed Gribbin


Alvanon, Inc.


combine mike with frank

new tech trend

find right size

cost of mark downs

what didnt sell, fit is critical


take 3d tech and better fit for human body

discipline, design, sourcing, etc

make more products fit better

300.000 scans from 21 countries

body shapes of demographics

largest manuf of tech fit forms

grown sales

better custom loyalty by better fit

fit is about, initmate, men, women, kids

#1 reason, buys a product, return it


shopping can be, fun, time consuming, frustration, cant find size

why is size a problem?

brand personality/ uniqueness, dif fit mdoels

diff countries/ size designations

inconsistent grading protocols

vanity sizing

lack of control via SC, fast fashion, fit forms

2/3 of customers are frustrated, conversion, return side, brand loyalty side


1 best fitting brands based on body, measurement, shape, ...

2. help create the best fit standard, 3d scan, develop avatar


scan people in malls, said which brands didnt fit well

me ality, scans in shopping malls, what size to buy

true fit, self measurements, lie, wrong fit, now ask, what cloths do you have, which jeans do you have

tc2, self scan at home, create pers. avator

styku, msoft xbox technology

metail, take pictures of yourseld, life like avator, design, fits n size

upcload, scanned with webcam, stand in doorway, hold a cd

stylitics, upload cloths, keep outfit histioty, b2b company, collect data sell back, trend forecasting, middle end, retail trends

size seeker

wrap, scan tech will be difficult

examle Markls & spencer

body shape denim

alva kids itunes app

infant fit form, size for kids


used info

where we going and how we get there

no simple solution

consistenly standard of fit, communicate, execute

better be consistenly wrong then inconsistenly right

2 examples copy offline to online, Mediamarkt - electronic retailer, offline, 1st floor complete chaos, so many offers, hard to find rigth product, online store, copied offline chaos to online world, tesco - korean subway, people have no time to buy daily stuff, a virtual store in the subway (add on a wall), scan with their smartphonema bar code, pay online and get it home deliverd

mass customization via internet - make to order, New York, better way to buy a suit, buy a suit online, generation smartpone, copied offline to online, it takes effort

itailor, offer for €20,-, it takes 14 steps to orde the shirt, after addings €40,-, shipping cost, its to complicated for a shirt, measuring proces, make it easy, added video how to measure yourself

size chart vs fitting room

example esprit, why not order to sizes since shipping is free, the customer has no idea

fitting room zenia, insert measurements, suggestion of size, accoring like a regular store, estimation if it'll fit

founded company, needed a suit, could find one, started in shanghai, first ever suit, their way, understand young gen., 25.000 customers world wide, undertstand what their customers want

apple, advertise nano, find interesting concept of clothing, look what is succesful, put it in system, stores, very clean, easy to understand
