LONDON — Internet investor Carmen Busquets, who helped to launch Net-a-porter, and founded the Web site Couturelab, has been quietly working on another luxury e-commerce site, which will launch in the U.S. in June.
Giftlab, which had a soft launch in the U.K. in November, is aimed at generous souls with deep pockets and interests ranging from fashion to jewelry, design, literature and food.
