Stylemyle chose Spree for its exclusive online marketplace based on "discovery" from a highly selective curation of boutiques and designers from around the world
An online destination for premium, contemporary luxury and emerging fashion
SPREE SUCCESS STORY
An innovative startup founded in 2017, Stylemyle partners with a highly select group of premium, contemporary luxury boutiques and emerging designers from around the globe. With a focus on discovery, they travel to unexpected places searching for emerging brands and boutiques. The company provides innovative marketplace platform for retailers and emerging brands to help them efficiently accelerate their growth. Its business model provides clients with one location to shop for contemporary luxury ranging from well-known established global brands to exciting emerging regional designers.
The one thing that I found was similar throughout my travels was the fact that anytime we found a seriously trendy boutique or emerging designer, they either didn’t have an online presence or their online experience was really limited for shoppers so we couldn’t buy from them again unless we went back to the same city.
Over time, I started to see a pattern and began to understand that the challenges of having a website for a small boutique as well as emerging designers were quite overwhelming. An endless pool of all this amazing inventory with really unique designers exists, yet they only sell locally to shoppers who are in the neighborhood and come into the boutique… At the same time, there is a growing phenomenon of shoppers looking for unique contemporary luxury brands and emerging designers all over the world. That’s where the idea for Stylemyle came about… I knew what I wanted to do and so, based on our experiences while traveling coupled with this new consumer phenomenon, Stylemyle was born.
