Marks & Spencer selects DCK as supplier for new accessories collection
Independent fashion jewellery business, DCK Group, has signed an agreement with Marks & Spencer to supply a bespoke accessories collection across jewellery, watches and hair accessories.
Chosen for its expertise in trend-led, first to market jewellery and commitment to responsible and ethical sourcing, the collection includes over 500 M&S branded products.
The new collection features key pieces designed specifically for the M&S customer, featuring a modern and stylish ‘handwriting’ style throughout the range. The range will also include an offer for M&S’s sub-brand Autograph – which will feature 95% recycled materials and a premium gold collection with semi-precious stones.
Manufactured to DCK’s market-leading standards, 20% of the core collection will include recycled materials with all of DCK’s suppliers compliant to high ethical standards.
The business previously supplied Topshop's Freedom jewellery range for 25 years, until Arcadia Group collapsed into administration in November 2020.
Lorraine Bottomley, DCK’s CEO said: “M&S is one of the largest omnichannel jewellery retailers in the UK by market share and we are absolutely thrilled to have been selected as their partner of choice for accessories. We are really looking forward to building on this partnership, as DCK continues on its ambitious and exciting journey, with creating truly the best jewellery for leading retailers firmly at the heart of what we do.”
Jill Stanton, M&S’s Womenswear Director, added: “We’re focused on offering our customers leading quality, style and value across all areas of clothing and footwear, but as part of strengthening our product engine we’ve had to get really clear on the different categories and how we can best serve our customers within them. In jewellery, a complementary category for us, we believe by working with industry experts DCK as a trusted supplier partner we can offer our customers a range that has real authority and complements our hero and growth categories within our stores and online.”
DCK will provide dedicated resources to replenish products across all M&S stores, build engagement with video content for M&S colleagues - highlighting hero products and how to wear them.
