Net-a-Porter and Yoox to Merge

There have been a lot of rumors as of late surrounding the fate of Net-a-Porter. Besides speculation that Amazon would be purchasing the e-tailer, it was reported that parent company Richemont had plans to merge it with Yoox. Now, Richemont has come forward to confirm that Yoox and Net-a-Porter will combine to form the Yoox Net-a-Porter Group.

Where Yoox and Net-a-Porter used to be rivals, now they will be working together to provide the world with luxury fashion accessed by a few simple clicks of the mouse. “We believe it is important to increase leadership and size to protect the uniqueness of the luxury industry,” Richemont Chairman Johann Rupert said. “The merger of the two leaders will further enhance an independent, neutral platform for a sophisticated clientele looking for luxury brands.”

Richemont is hoping that the pair, considered pioneers in the luxury retail game, can join forces and again shift the landscape. “Together, we plan to expand on our many combined successes and industry breadth to strengthen partnerships with the world’s leading luxury brands and harness a significant untapped growth potential,” Yoox founder Federico Marchetti said.

New York Footwear Brand Rivals the Selfie Stick with a Pair of Selfie Shoes

Consider your shoe fetish RUINED. An American shoe brand has really put their foot in it, today unveiling a new set of pumps designed to help you take a no-hands selfie. It’s just as visually displeasing as you had imagined.

The brand responsible for this hilariously innovative thinking is Miz Mooz, a New York shoe company which was getting a bit toey with the selfie stick aka wand of self-absorption. “The great thing about the selfie shoes is you no longer need to use your arm, so now both hands are free to be in the photo,” Cheryl Matson, Miz Mooz’  design director explained in the promo clip.

So how does this nonsense work? Well, apparently, you just insert your phone into the port (which is some god-awful elongated open-toe style situation), raise your foot as high as humanly possible to get a flattering angle, and click the internal button with tap of your toe to selfie away. Too easy! (more…)

Here’s What the Kardashians Call Their Glam Sessions

Khloe Kardashian Makeup

Khloé Kardashian and her sisters love them some makeup. Between Kim’s flawless contouring and Kylie Jenner‘s plump, drawn-on lips, it’s clear that the reality TV clan knows its way around a makeup brush. Indeed, the Kardashian-Jenners spend so much time getting gussied up that they’ve come up with their own slang for it — terms that can be confusing to us mere mortals. Khloé explains the nomenclature to Into The Gloss.

“One time I said to someone, ‘I have H and M tomorrow,’ and they were like, ‘Why are you going to H&M?’ I thought everyone knew that H and M meant ‘hair and makeup,’ but then I realized it’s just us,” she said. H&M: Affordable retail destination for us poor folk, shorthand for the Kardashian-Jenner family’s expensive day-to-day routines.

Khloé, who admits she sometimes wears lip color to the gym, says that’s not the only term the sisters use for their hair and makeup sessions. “I’ll be like ‘What time is glam?’” she said, “and people are like ‘What the f**k is glam?’”

But whether you call it “glam,” “H&M” or “not worth the daily investment,” one thing’s for certain: Whoever the Kardashians have got on their glam squad is doing a bang-up job.
