It’s a given that pretty much anything is available online these days. Clothes, food boxes and camera rental services; you can even order the newest Tesla straight from their website. It’s clear that this trend shows no sign of slowing down as even luxury brands are transitioning online despite the high price tags and security concerns attached to transporting valuable items.
But those embracing online shopping will be glad to know that thanks to the growth ecommerce sites, both by major luxury brands and independent sellers using platforms such as this, their breadth of choice is now greater than ever. With that in mind, here a couple of the best websites to visit if you’re looking for trusted brands and luxury clothing online.
One of the more well-known sites out there, Net-A-Porter has established itself as a luxury fashion destination. Stocking brands such as Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo and Stella McCartney, Net-A-Porter is a go-to destination for women with a taste for finery, and stocks a multitude of products from all types of clothing, shoes, handbags right up to lingerie and beauty products. They also deliver to over 170 countries, meaning you’re more than likely able to order those Gucci sunglasses without hassle.
One for the guys. Mr Porter, part of the same group as Net-A-Porter, is dedicated to providing the very best in menswear over a broad range of categories including clothing, shoes and fine watches. If you’re the type of man that loves to pamper yourself, manicure your beard and sport an impeccable quiff, then Mr Porter is probably the store you’re looking for; they stock a variety of different grooming products for all aspects of male grooming. Not only a clothing store, they also run an editorial section which produces valuable and informative articles pertaining to health, style and lifestyle.
Gilt is all about indulgence. The online store caters to both men and women, stocking a wide range of clothing and accessories from premium brands such as Hudson and Diane von Furstenberg. But unlike the other sites mentioned here, Gilt also features home and travel sections for those who are looking for more than just clothing and want to spruce up the house or sneak off to a luxury getaway. It’s the perfect site for those with a more holistic approach to retail in general, and offers you the chance to get decent discounts on top designer labels.
