AZ Factory, the fashion house led by Alber Elbaz that is the most widely anticipated new brand in the industry, is planning a talk show as well as exclusives on Net-A-Porter and Farfetch as part of its launch next week.
Yoox Net-A-Porter is running two pilot Digital ID technology programmes ahead of a rollout across all of its private-label collections from next year. It said the move will accelerate circularity in luxury and fashion.
Alber Elbaz's AZ Factory, Charles de Vilmorin and Sterling Ruby are the three latest brands to be invited by France's Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to show their collections from 25 to 28 January.
Matchesfashion and Net-A-Porter are playing a game of senior musical chairs with one of the leading lights of the latter joining Matches, while its commercial chief heads for a role at Richemont-owned Net-A-Porter.
