Starting on March 3th, fashion connoisseurs have a new destination: THECORNER.COM (www.thecorner.com), a high-end online department store featuring the latest collections from cutting-edge international designers and a selection of Italian premium niche brands- many of them making their online debut. Established to convey each brand's distinct image, the store will feature "corners" that are virtual shops created for each designer.
THECORNER.COM will open its virtual doors in the United States and the European Union at the start of March 2008 with the Spring/Summer '08 Men's Collections by 20 designers and brands, among them: Marc Jacobs, Viktor & Rolf, Etro, Rykiel Homme, Hussein Chalayan, Premiata and Costume National Active. THECORNER.COM will also open in Japan in Fall/Winter '08 and launch Women's Collections within the year.
THECORNER.COM is powered by YOOX, the worldwide Internet retailing partner for the leading fashion brands.
