A virtual door has opened for beauty brands: the luxury sample sale e-tailer Gilt Groupe.
Over the last 15 months, Gilt has built its invitation-only, e-commerce business by linking arms with high-end accessories and ready-to-wear brands — Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Chloé, to name a few — and has since expanded to the children’s and home categories. Gilt offers its members — which number more than 800,000 shoppers — goods at up to 70 percent off the retail price during sales that last 36 hours.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
