The digital experience for brick-and-mortar stores still has a ways to go in terms of measuring up to pure-play counterparts — but tapping talent native to the medium and creating a point of differentiation are the first steps.
The “omnichannel experience” remains a leading buzz phrase, and Miki Berardelli, chief marketing officer at Tory Burch LLC; Matthew Berglass, president of executive search firm Berglass + Associates, and Michael Burgess, president, Saks Direct, Saks Fifth Avenue, struck a united chord about the importance of strengthening the digital experience for retailers, as well as melding this with a corresponding online presence.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
