Exclusive E-commerce Portal Launches to Invitation-Only Base
NEW YORK, March 4, 2015 /CNW/ -- Clique Chic, the first members-only global luxury fashion ecommerce destination offering superior personalized services, launches this month to an exclusive base. The site, conceived and developed by LVMH and Vogue alum Jessica Martino, translates the quality and amenities of a traditional brick and mortar luxury environment for the digital platform, delivering truly exceptional experiences to top customers across desktop, laptop and mobile.
Martino, a seasoned marketing executive who has spent over a decade at both startups and globally renowned brands, founded Clique Chic on the belief that "luxury shoppers deserve luxury experiences, no matter where or how they shop." Says Martino, "Clique Chic marries human touch with convenience in a way that didn't previously exist in the ecommerce space. We aren't simply making luxury products available online – we are making a true luxury shopping experience available within the digital realm."
Similar to the American Express Centurion program, Clique Chic is reserved for an elite membership and guarantees prestige services befitting the world's top luxury brands and in-the-know designers, within an ultra-clean, user-friendly interface. Lovers of luxury fashion will answer questions about their personal style and shopping habits in order to be placed on a waitlist for membership. Those who are invited to join will receive a membership key that grants entry to the complete Clique Chic experience, which includes social interaction with your clique, customized suggestions from your own personal shopper, and access to the site's around-the-clock concierge service.
Unlike other luxury ecommerce sites, Clique Chic offers truly bespoke recommendations curated in a customer's size by expert personal shoppers to complement her figure and match her style preferences. Moreover, the site's buyers carefully curate the most unique yet timeless pieces from designers around the globe – from Derek Lam and Giambattista Valli to Maiyet and Vivienne Westwood – representing a well-edited assortment of classically stylish rather than trend-driven items.
While Clique Chic focuses on women's clothing, its social shopping functionality means members can also include the men in their life within their "clique," making it an ideal way to shop for gifts (just peruse a member's Wish List) as well as for oneself. There is no cost to join, and shipping/returns are free for all Clique Chic members.
