Apropos, the concept store based in Düsseldorf and Cologne, will launch its first online boutique on Dec. 3, 2009. The online store will offers all its international luxury designer fashion, accessories and innovative lifestyle brands, including Donna Karan, Givenchy, Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, PRPS, Valentino and Zanotti. The design of the online store is ambitious and optimized for use, with features such as “Shop By Look” and “As Seen On” that enable users to style looks directly from the red carpet. Other features allow users to shop by color or by brand, with Apropos sales consultants standing by ready to offer tips.
