Devised by Laura Hofmann, a tech savvy fashion expert and young entrepreneur, the Lalike concept was developed to bridge the gap between blogs, online magazines, shopping sites and facebook, taking online fashion to another more international level. Combining e-commerce, trends, shoots and catwalk reports, Lalike will host everything a fashion lover needs, all in one place.
As Hofmann states: "I started Lalike because I wanted to create a community for fashion admirers, allow brands and customers to communicate with each other, and combine the world’s finest fashion on one website.”
With a team of in-house fashion insiders and writers, Lalike covers the world's top catwalks, and reports on the newest trends and the most exciting fashion news. An easy to use portal, the site enables its users to shop via a variety of methods. Links can be found to products from more than 500 designers and partnerships with e-commerce sites like Matches, net-a-porter, Mytheresa and Browns fashion, along with direct relationships with high street brands such as Miss Selfridge, Warehouse and Monsoon, means members are spoilt for choice.
Online shopping will be linked directly to each brand’s own dedicated e-commerce site, or sites such as net-a-porter. Having built a concrete relationship with some of the finest new designers and household brand names, Lalike will offer its members exclusive offers and up to date information.
Lalike’s opening brands include Acne, Lanvin, Chloe, Christian Louboutin, Proenza Schouler and Miu
Miu to name but a few.
I really like this idea, and although I've not had a chance to use/browse Lalike as much as I'd like to, I know I will be exploring it more and more, especially over this weekend!
What impresses me most is Laura's dedication and enthusiasm for this website ... that and her incredible style!
