The popular online luxury retailer Gilt Groupe has just released the good news that they will be expanding! The site will launch its sister site on August 12th, called Gilt Fuse which will, the site tells us, "fuse fashion and affordability." And that's music to our ears! The concept behind the site is to have current styles of contemporary brands, similar to the original Gilt, but with "a deeper inventory and significantly lower prices." Gilt Fuse will also feature designs by a single designer for 36 hours at a time, similar to the original, but with an average discount at 70 percent off and a price point for many pieces hovering between $75 and $100. “We recognized that there is a need in the flash sale category to offer
fashionable, contemporary brands at significant discounts,” CEO Susan
Lyne said . “A large portion of
our Gilt membership is looking for effortless, everyday fashions that
don’t stretch their budget. Gilt Fuse is a natural expansion for our
brand and an answer to our evolving customer demands.” The debut sale will include Plenty by Tracy Reese, Kova & T, Modern Amusement, CC Skye, TKO Orologi, RJ Graziano, and BCBG. Not a bad way to start! The sale kicks off on August 12th at 12 p.m. EST. Membership for Gilt Fuse will be by invitation only, but if you're already a Gilt Groupe member, you're in! And if you're not, you can contact gilt.com.
