The online shop, which recently re-launched in the US and the UK last fall, aims to enhance the digital retail experience with improved customer interaction and special retail functions such as "Reserve in store" that enables the user to reserve an item online and pick up at a store location of their choice. All online orders are beautifully gift packaged for the shopper's convenience. Free standard shipping and returns are offered to all customers. Additionally the in-store "Private Wardrobing" service, a personalized concierge style in-store service, is available to book online.
