Aerin Lauder, Johanna Ortiz Celebrate Collaboration With Net-a-porter

Aerin Lauder and Johanna Ortiz’s makeup collaboration started as many modern-day partnerships do: on Instagram.
“I was in Palm Beach about two years ago for Christmas and I was wearing this beautiful red dress and I posted [it on Instagram],” said Lauder. “Everyone in my office was like, you have to tag, you have to credit, and I did and [Ortiz] commented and from there it started.”
On Wednesday evening, Lauder cohosted a dinner party with Net-a-porter and Ortiz at her Upper East Side apartment to celebrate Aerin x Johanna Ortiz, which launched Nov. 2. The party was attended by Brett Heyman, influencer Arielle Charnas, Indre Rockefeller, Clemence von Mueffling and Net-a-porter’s global buying director Elizabeth von der Goltz.
“Any time we do a beauty collaboration with a fashion designer, it always sells super well,” said Von der Goltz. “It’s a lot to do with the fact that people love beauty. The packaging, getting those special prints that are specific to a designer and having that mashed with beauty and the color, it gives the customer another reason to buy. They’re pretty easy purchases in terms of you’re letting someone enter into the life of Aerin Lauder and the life of Johanna Ortiz at

Yoox Net-a-porter, Bloomsbury Team on Fashion Video Archive Project

THE ARCHIVE COMES ALIVE: Yoox Net-a-porter is investing in education and the younger generations through a partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing that will make rare fashion-show footage available to the educational market.
YNAP has worked with Bloomsbury to digitize its runway archive collection between 1979 and 2003, before shows were automatically digitized. The result is more than 3,000 videos and hundreds of hours of footage that offer a window into fashion history and a new way for students to examine the evolution of the catwalk over the years, key collections and individual designers’ work.
The footage is supported by scholarly articles and video descriptions to make the archive easily discoverable. All accompanying content has been curated by Dr. Valerie Steele, fashion historian and director of the museum at Fashion Institute of Technology.
“We have always known the value of the archive to the educational community. It provides a great link to the future,” said Tara Tierney, YNAP’s digital collections curator.
Kathryn Earle, managing director at Bloomsbury Digital Resources, said the footage highlights the impact of some of the most influential designers of the period including the Antwerp Six, Rei Kawakubo and Hussein Chalayan.
“It  spans more than two decades of London, Paris, New York and Milan runway shows and

Alison Loehnis Marks a Decade at Net-a-porter Group

TURNING TEN: Federico Marchetti raised a toast this week to Alison Loehnis, president of Net-a-porter Group, to mark her 10 years at the company. The party was held at Laylow, the newly refurbished private members’ club in west London, with Bella Freud DJ’ing in glittery Gucci flatform sandals.
Olivia Palermo, Mary McCartney, Jacquetta Wheeler, Justin Thornton, Thea Bregazzi and Roksanda Ilincic were among the guests at Monday night’s party. They mingled with the Yoox Net-a-porter team, including Lucy Yeomans, editor in chief of Net-a-porter and Elizabeth von der Goltz, the site’s global buying director.
Loehnis joined Net-a-porter.com in 2007 as vice president of sales and marketing before becoming president of the site in 2011. In 2015, she was promoted to president of the group, overseeing Net-a-porter, Mr Porter, Theoutnet.com and Porter magazine.
While they may have let their hair down at the party, the YNAP team remained tight-lipped about Richemont’s proposed takeover of the group. YNAP’s chief executive officer Marchetti said he couldn’t comment, but said that “Alison has been a great sparring partner. When you do a merger, you want someone beside you who’s supportive. It has been great working with her.”
The big question on everyone’s lips wasn’t about the future of YNAP but rather what will happen

Net-a-porter Amps Up Its Accessories Buying Team

BEEFING UP: Net-a-porter is making strategic personnel appointments in an effort to reinforce its accessories business.
The e-commerce site has named Nayla Touma as its buying director for shoes, handbags and accessories. Touma joins Net-a-porter from Bergdorf Goodman, where she worked as division merchandise manager for footwear.
She will report to Elizabeth von der Goltz, Net-a-porter’s global buying director — also a Bergdorf Goodman alum.
Touma is to begin her new role at the end of February, with plans to relocate to London in April. Prior to Bergdorf Goodman, Touma held various positions with Bloomingdale’s.
Her hire is just part of an effort by Net-a-porter to bulk up its accessories buying operation. The site has promoted Billie Faricy-Hyett to the role of buying manager for handbags, accessories and beauty. She previously served as senior buyer for handbags, accessories, fashion and demi-fine jewelry. Additionally, Thalia Tserevegou has been elevated to the role of buying manager for shoes from her previous role as senior buyer for shoes.
Von der Goltz said of these changes in a statement: “Reinforcing our core team is essential to us shaping and developing these growing areas of our business while adopting a progressively tactical approach to the integral categories of shoes, handbags

Net-a-porter Takes Evolution Over Revolution Approach for Spring

LONDON — Net-a-porter has been rethinking the way it approaches its seasonal buys and shifting its attention away from the traditional fashion calendar and ephemeral trends, toward ideas that have been unfolding over several seasons, items that have social media mileage and buzzy new names in the contemporary market.
“The idea that each season we present the woman with a new vision of who she is going to be, is simply outdated for us,” said Lisa Aiken, the company’s retail fashion director, explaining that while the Net customer is always on the hunt for newness, she also has an intimate knowledge of her personal style and isn’t looking for radical shifts.
For spring, the retailer is standing behind a number of trends that have been developing over the last few seasons, including tailoring, bright colors and high glamour.
Tailoring has already taken off for fall; suits made up 30 percent of the company’s ready-to-wear buy for fall 2017 and to date, 6,000 blazers have been sold on the site. For spring, Net is planning to build on the trend’s burgeoning success, with tailored pieces in lighter fabrications such as linen and brighter colors.
The retailer has also been cautiously introducing Eighties or Nineties-inspired pieces,

Celebrating the holiday season, being able to take pieces and mix and match and just always complimenting who you are through what you’re wearing, and having conversation in a really subtle and chic manner with beautiful, classic pieces that have also a point of view and a little bit of attitude; having a bit of sassiness and sexiness in a really confident and natural way. But at the same time being

Net-a-porter, Bulgari Socialize Under Milan’s Starry Skies

STAR POWER: Summer just can’t bring itself to say arrivederci to Milano, where the weather has been sunny and balmy all week, leaving showgoers wondering why they’re rushing between runways instead of heading to the seaside.
Nights have been warm and starlit, too, creating the ideal backdrop for cocktail parties hosted by Net-a-porter president Alison Loehnis and Bulgari, which feted a handbag collaboration with Nicholas Kirkwood.

Federico Marchetti and Alison loehnis 

“It’s sadly not my home — I wish it were,” said Loehnis, referring to the historic — and spectacular — private villa near Corso Magenta, where she hosted a party for Net’s fashion brands and members of the industry, including Yoox Net-a-porter chief executive officer Federico Marchetti.
A private home belonging to the Radice Fossati family, the villa boasts a 13th-century facade and courtyard, and 18th-century interiors that were filled with ancestral oil paintings mounted on mile-high walls.
“We’re an Anglo-Italian family now, an international family. We thought it was the perfect time of year, and we wanted something cozy,” she said as she greeted guests including Diego Della Valle, Antonio Berardi, Laudomia Pucci, Gianvito Rossi, Marco Bizzarri, Marco de Vincenzo and Alessandro dell’Acqua, in the lush and sprawling garden.
