Joyce Azria’s New Line Rohb Adapts to Amazon

Joyce Azria has proven adept at adaptation, having grown up in her family’s BCBG Max Azria business, then exiting in 2016 to launch her own direct-to-consumer young contemporary brand Avec Les Filles as consumer preferences shifted to branded, designer-driven, omnichannel merchandise.
Now she’s delving deeper into the online space — specifically Amazon — with a new, under-$ 50 basics brand called Rohb, which made its debut in beta mode on the e-commerce behemoth this week, with its own shoppable site coming soon.

While some brands may see Amazon as a black hole or point of no return, Azria thinks it’s an opportunity to expand her retail universe, which includes occasion dresses, activewear and jewelry extensions for Avec Les Filles, a low-caffeine energy drink called Miron that’s also sold on Amazon Prime, and a podcast aptly called “Success Redesigned.”
“I’m always on Amazon buying home staples anyway, so for fashion, I wanted to keep it uncomplicated, too. Women are already buying basics on Amazon when they’re buying diapers or trash bags,” she said.

Drew Barrymore today launches a contemporary lifestyle brand called Dear Drew on Amazon Fashion. Described as “a love letter to women around the world,” the collection includes apparel, handbags, jewelry, luggage, hair tools, lingerie and loungewear, priced from $ 28 to $ 248.
In the first campaign image, Barrymore wears the Mulberry Street tie-front skirt, SoHo fan drop earrings, Little Italy identification bracelet, NoLIta cuff and You are Strong clutch. While the items are clearly inspired by New York neighborhoods, the collection is meant to have an international appeal.
“We’re delighted to be teaming up with Drew Barrymore to debut her new brand on Amazon Fashion,” said Amazon Fashion director Kate Dimmock, who praised Barrymore’s “impressive career and creative energy,” as well as her “free-spirited style.”
Amazon Fashion has private label basics brands Lark & Ro, Ella Moon, Mae, Paris Sunday, Amazon Essentials, Buttoned Down, Good Threads and Scout + Ro, but Dear Drew is the first celebrity-driven fashion brand launching on the e-tailer.

Perry Ellis is tapping into the voice activation market.
The men’s wear brand has teamed with Amazon to create an “Ask Perry Ellis” skill, or a set of built-in capabilities, that works with the voice-activated Amazon Alexa device to offer styling suggestions for various occasions.
“Over the years, we’ve seen men’s dressing habits evolve from wearing clothes for one specific occasion to the need to wear clothes for many different occasions,” said Melissa Worth, Perry Ellis’ president, before presenting the new technology on Thursday morning at The Standard Hotel in New York’s East Village. “At Perry Ellis, we are committed to providing solutions that are going to help him feel comfortable, look stylish and be appropriately dressed for any occasion on his calendar.”
According to Worth, after surveying a group of men, the team at Perry Ellis found that 81 percent of them had challenges getting dressed and 45 percent said the biggest struggle was getting dressed for a specific event and making sure they were appropriately dressed.
Perry Ellis is hoping to remedy this with “Ask Perry Ellis,” which allows men to ask Alexa what to wear for a particular event — the skill is programmed to respond to 150 different occasions ranging
