MILAN — Italian design company Kartell has teamed with Yoox Group to launch its new kartell.com store, which went live Thursday. The Web site, which has been designed by Yoox’s internal creative team starting from a “mobile first” approach, is Kartell’s first online store and is currently available for Europe only. Shipments to the U.S. will start at the end of the year, while in 2015 the e-store will make its debut in the remaining markets.
“This is really an integrated Web site, where Kartell can show all its contents, which will be constantly updated,” said Kartell president Claudio Luti, who highlighted the importance of exploring the online market. “The world is divided in different sales channels, which must be integrated. We are strong in the retail business with stores all around the world; we are present in high-end international multibrand stores, and we realized the importance to be online with a beautiful site powered by Yoox, which is the best player in this segment.”
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
