New ecommerce Site Offers All Naked Collections Direct To Consumers
NEW YORK-- Naked Brand Group Inc. (OTCQB:NAKD) (“Naked” or “the Company”) a global lifestyle brand focused on innovative and luxurious innerwear, loungewear and sleepwear, has launched a totally revamped and enhanced online shopping platform at www.thenakedshop.com. The launch of this new ecommerce platform is aimed at optimizing direct customer experience online and mobile. It also coincides with the roll out of new product packaging, marketing, advertising and social media campaigns alongside Naked’s new men’s collections launched in February starting at Nordstrom stores across North America. To view the new website, shop, and to receive the latest news about Naked, visit www.thenakedshop.com.
“We expect our new ecommerce platform will be a critical channel for connecting directly to customers and we believe it has enormous growth potential, particularly as we expand into woman’s intimate apparel as 2015 unfolds,” said Joel Primus, Founder and President of Naked. “Our direct-to-consumer shopping experience now reflects the seamless way form meets function in our extraordinary Naked products. Like our new logo design and best-in-class product packaging, our online user experience now exemplifies the core DNA of the Naked brand.”
Beyond a new online storefront that enhances user shopping experience for all devices including mobile, Naked’s ecommerce platform leverages the Company’s new enterprise resource planning software and third-party logistics partner, which position Naked for rapid growth and scalability.
“Our objective in expanding and enhancing our entire ecommerce and logistics platform was to improve the overall experience for our loyal customers while creating an environment to drive trial and engagement with new customers,” says Carole Hochman, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Naked. “With dynamic marketing campaigns, expanded product collections set for release throughout 2015, and now our new ecommerce platform in place to accelerate growth of direct-to-consumer sales, key components are in place to take Naked to the next level.”
The design and development of Naked’s new brand identity and website were spearheaded by Naked’s branding and marketing partner, Case Study Brands.
Naked was founded on one basic desire, to create a new standard for how products worn close to the skin fit, feel and function. Naked has a strong and growing retail footprint for its innovative and luxurious men’s innerwear products in some of the best online and department stores in North America. In 2014, renowned designer and sleepwear pioneer, Carole Hochman, joined Naked as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Creative Officer and Chairwoman with the goal of growing Naked into a global lifestyle brand. Naked is now headquartered in New York City, has expanded its men’s collections and has developed amazing women’s intimate apparel, sleepwear and loungewear collections – the kind of extraordinary products for which Carole Hochman has been admired for years. The first of these women’s collections will be available online and at retail during 2015. In the future, Naked plans to expand into other apparel and product categories that can exemplify the mission of the brand, such as activewear, swimwear, sportswear and more.
