Etienne Aigner has launched an online store that will be its flagship retail venue.
The site, etienneaigner.com, will showcase a selection of handbags and jewelry that represents the core of the brand. The e-commerce initiative is designed to allow the customer to shop by group, style, color and price.
Additional features include marketing highlights, as well as information on the history and evolution of the Etienne Aigner brand.
“We wanted to give the customer a platform to communicate directly with the brand,” said Julie De Cuyper, Etienne Aigner’s marketing manager. “Having an online presence also opens up endless marketing opportunities for the brand. Not only can we show the heritage and brand values, but at the same time, react directly to the customers’ needs.”
Coinciding with the e-commerce launch is the brand’s 60th anniversary celebration. To mark the milestone, Etienne Aigner is introducing a limited edition collection of vintage-inspired handbags available exclusively on the site. Retailing from $88 to $188, the bags are taken directly from Etienne Aigner styles from the Sixties and Seventies, while incorporating modern details such as fringe and pony hair. To kick off the celebration, the firm is holding a contest where customers can win a handbag by submitting their favorite story involving Etienne Aigner to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to handbags and jewelry, the Etienne Aigner brand includes smaller leather goods, footwear, gloves and sunglasses that are available in select department and specialty stores.

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)

@janellemonae’s “What’s Your Frequency?” room in @refinery29's #29Rooms made its debut this week at the opening of the Los Angeles art exhibit. “It’s about the ongoing conversation around mass surveillance, the weaponization of technology and cultural uniformity. My space was created so that we can come together and talk about the complexities of our humanity,” said Monáe. #wwdeye (📷: @bucknerphoto)
@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
