Short for Trafaluc, TRF was a digital category designed as part of the Zara offering, sitting alongside Zara’s men’s, women’s and children’s wear segments. The category was created as a mixed edit of Zara pieces targeted at millennials, chosen for each item’s affordability and style.

Now, TRF is no longer a category on Zara’s digital landscape, including its app and online stores worldwide. As a result, the men’s and women’s TRF items has been integrated into their respective gender categories.

Zara, Inditex’s biggest brand, has been on a brand journey of transformation in the last twelve months. The retailer introduced a new Zara logo in January 2019 and has spent the past several months reorganising its activities; taking its Zara Home back onto the general Zara website.

Product-wise, Zara has also expanded its popular SRPLS collection, and expanded its fragrance category in collaboration with perfumer, Jo Malone. Meanwhile, the retailer has unveiled its customised collection via a new Edited line.

Zara continues to deliver the highest sales numbers at Inditex. Zara revenues grew 7.3% to 8.89 billion euros in the first-half of the year, making up some 70% of the group’s total global turnover. In the third-quarter, Inditex — chaired by Pablo Isla — increased sales by 7.5% to 19.82 billion euros.
