Luxury fashion group Lanvin is teaming up with Shopify to enhance and power its e-commerce in the US as it looks to accelerate its digital strategies in the region.
In a statement, Lanvin Group said that from H2 2022, Lanvin and Sergio Rossi would become the first of the Group's luxury brands to transition onto the digital platform in the North American market. A move it adds will allow them to “unlock new growth opportunities with market-leading digital capabilities in the world's largest luxury fashion market”.
The new digital platform powered by Shopify will allow the brands to “focus on what matters the most” the products and customers. While also continuing its expansion with support from a robust commerce engine as it looks to provide “best-in-class customer experience with dedicated merchandise and content, as well as optimised and localised omni-channel shopping services”.
The fashion group states that Shopify's highly modular and scalable solutions offer great potential for its other existing and any newly-acquired luxury brands to centralise their e-commerce functions on a shared platform, creating synergies across the portfolio, while still maintaining individual brand's unique interfaces and databases.

Lanvin Group will also adopt Shopify's agile and user-friendly digital solutions to enhance the digital experience for its customers and benefit from Shopify's extensive app-based ecosystem in business process optimisation and digital acceleration as it continues to expand globally through retail footprint expansion, e-commerce channel activation and category expansion.
Joann Cheng, chairman and chief executive of Lanvin Group, said: "As an innovation-driven luxury fashion group, we strive to usher in the future of luxury. Shopify has been at the forefront of innovation, working with some of the most successful businesses to transform e-commerce for merchants and consumers globally.
