Britain's Fashion Pack Targets Tech-savvy Men To Lift Sales - Yahoo News

The move to tap in to the power of digital services follows an increase in the proportion of men shopping for fashion online, jumping from 52 percent to 65 percent in 2013, from a survey of 2,000 consumers aged over 16. MR PORTER.COM, a luxury online retailer whose website attracts around 1.6 million visitors a month, will launch a clothing collection designed exclusively for the film Kingsman. "Projects such as Kingsman are developed to reflect our pioneering nature and to ensure that we are providing our customers with something that they cannot get anywhere else globally" said Toby Bateman, Buying Director at MR PORTER. "They are also essential in developing brand awareness," he added. Similarly, Topman - part of British retail billionaire Philip Green's Arcadia Group, will create a video with London-based artist Natalia Stuyk to be screened at its catwalk show and shown online simultaneously as part of its live-streaming. Heritage brand Burberry will enable its customers to order clothes online right after watching a live-stream of its show on Monday.

The Met's Costume Institute celebrates China in spring show - Yahoo News

The Burlingame, Calif., company is counting on Shine's design to attract stylish customers. The $100 tracker is smooth and circular and comes in pearly pastel colors including sea glass, champagne and coral. Users can upgrade to high-end wristbands made of pebbled leather and metallic mesh, or wear the tracker as a necklace. Misfit also offers a premium Swarovski Shine line. Other tech brands, Anderson said, "get wrapped up in the functionality and then try to make something that's beautiful in the end, instead of focusing on the beauty from the very beginning of the product." The worldwide wearable computing market reached an estimated 19.2 million units shipped in 2014, more than tripling the total from the year before, according to IDC. The research firm predicts that the market will swell to 111.9 million units shipped in 2018.
