Consumers aren’t going easy on retailers. In efforts to grasp the latest shifts in preferences and expectations, Nielsen partnered with Stripe, an online payment platform to collect covetable consumer data. For example, the research discovered that 51 percent of consumers will abandon a web site if it takes too long — typically three seconds or longer.
What’s more, it confirmed that e-commerce marketplaces aren’t going anywhere, anytime soon. Sixty-eight percent of Millennials confirmed they had shopped on an online marketplace in the past year. But retailers and brands have a huge opportunity to maximize on this preference, especially on mobile — according to the research, only 29 percent of participants have used their mobile device to shop e-commerce marketplaces, compared to 53 percent sharing they had used their smartphone or alternative device to make restaurant reservations.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
