Jonathan Adler And eBay Launch 'Inspiration Shop' In New York (PHOTOS)
Two modern fashion trend setters, Jonathan Adler and, yep, eBay, launched the Inspiration Shop in New York today.
The Inspiration Shop is a 24/7 shoppable storefront in New York City that showcases a variety of fall merchandise. The always-open store windows use eBay's mobile technology to let buyers shop instantly: shoppers can download eBay's mobile app to their phones and scan QR codes for products, which takes them directly to eBay's marketplace.
"I'm dedicated to bringing style and joy to people through design, and working with eBay has given me a new way to inspire shoppers this season," said Adler in a statement. "The chic choices from our contributors, coupled with the incredible selection available on eBay, resulted in a genuinely inspired storefront. And the fact that you can shop it all from your smartphone is truly groovy."
Top trendsetters were tapped to help curate the items featured in the windows by sharing their shopping wish lists for fall, including Andrea Linett, Betsey Johnson, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Chelsea Leyland, Coco Rocha, David Kiley, Jean Jennings, Jen Rade, Justin Bell, Lake Bell, Liz Lange, Matt DeLorenzo, Michael Fink, Molly Sims, Myles Kovacs, Rebecca Minkoff, Rebecca Weinberg, Simon Doonan, Trina Turk and Zem Joaquin.
eBay has been having success in the fashion world recently: Missoni for Target items recently received bids as high as $31,000 from desperate shoppers.
The shop is open until November 10th at 404 Park Avenue South in New York, and we might be heading down there ourselves, because we're totally digging these window displays.
