Farfetch announced its acquisition of London boutique retailer Browns in May 2015. This boutique is run independently from Farfetch by CEO Holli Rogers who joined the business in July 2015. Rogers was the former fashion director of online retailer Net-A-Porter.
In September 2018, Farfetch (FTCH.N) listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), pricing shares above the estimated targeted range leading to a valuation of over $5.8 billion. The IPO raised $885 million for the company after the issue of 33.6 million new shares. Early investors in Farfetch including Vitrurian Partners and Advent Venture Partners, sold up to 10.6 million shares. It was reported that Neves will net $1.2 billion from the IPO.
In August 2019, Farfetch acquired New Guards Group, the parent organisation of Off-White designer label for US$675million. Immediately following the purchase, Farfetch's shares plunged by over 40 percent.
To the consumer, the company delivers value by granting access to an unparalleled global selection of fashion-forward pieces rivaling that of Barneys or Bergdorf. To the boutique, the platform 1) helps to clear inventory by connecting the store to a vast network of international shoppers, 2) incentivizes taking riskier merchandising bets by mitigating constraints resulting from regional style preferences, and 3) enables brick-and-mortar establishments to operate 24/7. In return, Farfetch receives a 25% commission from each transaction .
Recently, Farfetch has made considerable investments to improve the execution of its omnichannel strategy. In May 2015, it acquired London-based boutique Browns with the goal of incubating and testing retail experience innovations at a physical store before implementing them across the broader Farfetch network . Earlier this year, the company debuted its white label platform business, Farfetch Black & White, which builds e-commerce capabilities for monobrands that have historically eschewed digitization . Its first client site, ManoloBlahnik.com, launched in March .
Farfetch'd is an avian Pokémon that resembles a light brown duck with a white underbelly. It has a flat, yellow beak, brown eyes, a V-shaped black marking on its forehead (similar to a unibrow), and a three-feather crest on top of its head. Its wings are as big as its body and appear to be prehensile enough to substitute for hands. It has yellow legs with webbed feet and a stubby tail.
Farfetch'd is always seen carrying a leek stalk or spring onion. It carries this sprig in its wings, but sometimes chooses to hold it in its beak or feet instead. Unable to live without its stick, Farfetch'd will defend it with its life. Losing the stalk can leave Farfetch'd defenseless, and it will seek out a new one to replace it. Known uses for the stick include use as a weapon, nesting material, and emergency food source. When using the stalk to attack, Farfetch'd wields and uses it like a sword to cut through things. There are several different fighting styles involving Farfetch'd's leek. It is selective about which sticks it will use and has been known to fight over good ones. Farfetch'd is found in temperate grasslands where reedy plants grow, guarding the plants from anyone trying to disturb them. However, Farfetch'd is rarely seen, and thus it is thought that its numbers are decreasing, and that it is at risk of extinction. According to sources such as the anime and the Pocket Monsters Encyclopedia, its population decline is caused by humans who hunted it down for food; one popular recipe suggested cooking it with its own leek. There have been attempts at breeding in order to increase the Farfetch'd population.
In Galar, Farfetch'd has a slightly different look. Galarian Farfetch'd is a deeper shade of brown, with a more prominent black mark on its head. The leek it carries with its wings is much larger in Galar than the leeks that Farfetch'd use in other regions, although whether it is related to the Large Leek used as a curry ingredient is unknown.
Galarian Farfetch'd's body has developed a much stronger frame that gives it the strength required to carry its leek. However, this sheer mass makes it hard for it to fly. It is renowned for its courage in battle and can use its leek like swords or javelins. As a result of surviving and experiencing many different battles, Galarian Farfetch'd develops the ability to evolve into Sirfetch'd.
Fafetch'd debuted in So Near, Yet So Farfetch'd, under the ownership of Keith, who used it to help steal other Trainers' Pokémon, including Misty's and Team Rocket's. It was used in a battle against Ash and battled Bulbasaur before losing to Misty and her Psyduck.
In Smells Like Team Spirit!, Holly used a Farfetch'd against Ash and Paul during the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition. Farfetch'd teamed up with Croagunk and battled Staravia and Torterra, but it was knocked out by Torterra's Hyper Beam.
In Extricated from Exeggutor, a wild Farfetch'd was saved by Yellow after getting attacked by a group of Exeggutor while it was trying to find its nest. Afterward, Yellow helped it try to find its nest and it later helped Yellow escape from the Exeggutor and Oddish. Later, it finally found its nest with the help of Yellow and bade farewell to her and Pika.
A Farfetch'd appeared in You Ain't Nothin' but a Houndour, under the ownership of a boy living in Azalea Town. Both the boy and Farfetch'd fell victim to the onslaught of the Masked Man's Pokémon in the depths of Ilex Forest.
In A Flaaffy Kerfuffle, Bill was seen using a Farfetch'd as a mode of transport. It later helped Bill escape from Staryu, but it got trapped with him. They were later rescued by Crystal in Surrounded by Staryu.
Galarian Farfetch'd transferred from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME from November 11 to November 16, 2020 erroneously use the level-up learnset of their Kantonian counterpart from Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. Galarian Farfetch'd or Sirfetch'd in Pokémon HOME, Sword, or Shield with illegal moves had their moves replaced with moves from their level-up movepool on November 16, 2020; opening Pokémon HOME at any point after that date will cause HOME to search all Sword and Shield savefiles on the console and correct the illegal movesets.
Players who transferred a Galarian Farfetch'd with any of these illegal moves cannot trade or battle online with it unless that move is deleted. These erroneous Galarian Farfetch'd otherwise function like other Galarian Farfetch'd, with Galarian Farfetch'd from GO being able to evolve into a Sirfetch'd with an illegal moveset.
Galarian Farfetch'd is likely inspired by a hammer throw athlete due to the way it wields its leek, such as swinging it in a circular motion during its attacks. It may also be based on a javelin thrower. The leek it carries resembles the Giant Musselburgh, a larger variant of the spring onion that was first bred in Scotland; and the wild leek, one of the national symbols of Wales. Its serious disposition and how it holds its leek over its shoulder is typical of the lone samurai archetype in modern Japanese fiction. The leek thus could be a stand-in for the ōdachi, which are large traditional Japanese swords such that samurai carrying them had to haul them over their backs.

Back in 2007, José Neves saw online e-commerce was the inevitable future of the luxury market. He set out to make the most of it and founded Farfetch as a global marketplace for brick-and-mortar fashion boutiques to expand in the nascent e-commerce channel.
By contrast, Farfetch has been scoring win after win in the luxury market. Its gross merchandise value (GMV) has advanced from $1.2 billion in 2018 to $4.2 billion in 2021, which was up over 33% year over year. It also turned the corner on profitability last year.
Farfetch now has its hands in some 6% of the total $68 billion online personal luxury goods market. Overall the online share of the personal luxury goods market reached 22% in 2021, second only to mono-brand stores, and is predicted to become the largest single distribution channel by 2025, with between 28% to 30% share.
In addition, both Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus will join the Farfetch global marketplace. Neiman Marcus also plans to use select FPS modules in its business, initially to extend its global reach.
