For those who have had a chance to shop at NYC's Kirna Zabête in SoHo, today offers a day of thanks as the boutique has launched ecommerce. An upscale mix of apparel, kids, housewares, and gifty items, you'll find labels such as Lanvin (the current "designer of the month"), Peter Som, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens, Lutz & Patmos, Sunshine & Shadow and Mike & Chris. The site also offers a host of shopping aids. Per the JC Report, "the site remembers your information for future use. Returning customers are given the best buying suggestions, sale tip offs and account history information...you can check out fashion show videos, reviews of designer collections and weekly editorial comments from co-founders Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini—in print or audio—on everything from designer profiles to making a purchase work for the weekend, uptown, downtown, or even on a first date."
