Farfetch Is Entering the Beauty Market With 100+ Luxury and Indie Brands
Attention all beauty shoppers, we have some news for you. Starting today you’ll have a new online store to snag all your favorite beauty wants and needs from — introducing: Farfetch Beauty.
In case you are unfamiliar, Farfetch is a British-Portuguese online retail platform that sells luxury fashion items from boutiques and brands around the world. Today, the company is entering the world of cosmetics with the launch of Farfetch Beauty. The platform launched with over 100 partners featuring powerhouse luxury brands, indie brands, and everything in between. To give you insight, some of the brands included are Olaplex, Charlotte Tilbury, La Mer, and so many more. The launch of these brands coincides with the wider Farfetch group’s existing beauty offerings of Browns, Off-White, and Violet Grey.
With this launch being so important to the company, Chief Brand Officer of Farfetch, Holli Rogers stated in the press release sent to Allure that beauty is such an important way for people to be able to express themselves and their individuality — it’s transformative. “We took this as an opportunity to shake up the online beauty retail experience by bridging fashion and beauty to appeal to our existing audience of fashion lovers,” she says. Adding, “We knew we had to offer beauty in an ‘only on Farfetch’ way — combining our know-how in bringing together a diverse community of expert voices that resonate with the modern beauty customer and their needs.”
But wait, there’s more. Farfetch also announced its first-ever Beauty Global Community Platform. Think of this as a social network to communicate and engage with beauty experts and founders. The platform will be led by a Curator-in-Chief who will be announced next month and joined by Farfetch Global Advisor Cassandra Grey, makeup artist Erin Parsons, board-certified dermatologist Michelle Henry, MD, and more.
Once you join the network (for free, of course) and begin to share beauty tips and advice, you’ll earn points to your account, helping you level up from Fan to Expert to, eventually, Pro. With these points, you can secure exclusive discounts and early access to sales.
