A Swoop Through Swoon

Monsoon has launched Swoon, a shoppable monthly magazine for tablets (but also working well on desktop). It’s full of products and rich content and is built on the Ceros design platform.

The image of Monsoon has perhaps slipped in recent years and lost some of its chic or urbanity. This campaign of shoppable magazines is a step towards bringing this firmly back to the brand, which needs to highlight the quality of its clothing, including its hand-embellished pieces.

The launch of a shoppable magazine is in line with many other brands seeking to bring more editorial and clustering to their offerings. Net-A-Porter has launched a mag, M&S has mixed up its website with plenty of content and trailblazers ASOS and TopShop have been doing this for a while. […]

One remains within the catalogue, shopping doesn’t boot you back out to the ecommerce functionality unless you want it to (to check out). You can add to bag and continue enjoying the editorial.

Connected Life
In Connected Life, a study of over 55,000 internet users worldwide, TNS found that almost half of people (48%) who watch TV in the evening simultaneously engage in other digital activities, such as using social media, checking their emails or shopping online.
The survey found that we own approximately four digital devices each, rising to five among Australian, German and UK respondents. This, combined with demand for TV and video content on-the-go, is fuelling the rise of multi-screening or ‘screen-stacking’ – the use of multiple digital devices at the same time. […]
The desire to access our favourite TV shows at all hours of the day is also driving online TV usage, which extends our access to them. One quarter (25%) of those surveyed worldwide watch content on a PC, laptop, tablet or mobile daily. This rises to one third (33%) in mainland China and Singapore and 32% in Hong Kong, where ‘phablets’ are increasingly popular. […]
Yet despite this surge in online consumption, traditional TV sets still play a huge part in our lives, with three quarters of respondents (75%) sitting in front of the box every day. TV dinners are also alive and well, with three out of four viewers (76%) giving TV their undivided attention while eating in the evening.

The Inspiration Corridor Gives Shoppers Personalized Selections

One of the biggest problems brick-and-mortar retailers face these days is that many consumers prefer the convenience of shopping online. 

Now, the French shopping mall owner Klépierre is prototyping an impressive new technology to give shoppers something they simply can’t get at home. 

The technology, called the Inspiration Corridor, was created in partnership with the digital advertising agency DigitasLBi. It’s basically a booth shoppers can step into that surrounds the shopper with visual representations of clothing they might like to buy.

The digital showroom provides these recommendations by scanning a person’s body type and matching it with store inventory.

The recommendations are presented on a touchscreen, allowing shoppers to swipe through different options and add the ones they like directly to a shopping cart to pay for later.

Neuchâtel in Switzerland has recently become home to the first application of a new game-changing store concept called ‘Retail of Tomorrow’, which aims to shape the retail landscape of the future. Headed up by Samsung, the state-of-the-art, total design and customer-communications system – unveiled at the new 250-square-metre Heidi.com flagship – designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architectural office Zaha Hadid Architects.

‘It’s about turning anonymous shoppers into known customers, who can be addressed according to their interests and preferences,’ explains Samsung Semiconductor’s Head of Marketing Communications Tom Arenz. ‘It’s a little bit like what you experience when you log into your Amazon account – a wealth of personalised recommendations based upon your purchase and search history, wishlists and other algorithms is presented to you.’

Will You Be Buying Stuff From Your TV in 2014?

Delivery Agent believes that 2014 will be a breakthrough for so-called “t-commerce” (that is, TV-based transactions.) By year’s end, company CEO Mike Fitzsimmons predicts that 25 million U.S. households – roughly a quarter of the total – will be t-commerce-ready.

Industry watchers don’t share his optimism. They point to the lack of infrastructure support and the apparent dearth of consumer interest as obstacles to widespread adoption.

T-commerce is a concept that has been technically possible for years, but still hasn’t come together. Buying with your remote is a more elegant solution, but consumers are now in the habit of using their phones and tablets.

For its part, Delivery Agent doesn’t necessarily need t-commerce to catch on, though Fitzsimmons believes it will. The company already provides mobile- and web-based methods to let consumers buy items they see on TV. “Traditional e-commerce pathways from PC to mobile are growing,” he says. “The remote is kind of the next step for us.”

H&M believes in t-commerce as well – the clothing chain let viewers (those with Samsung Smart TVs) use their remote controls to buy items from David Beckham’s Bodywear line of underwear in their interactive Super Bowl ad.

Adidas Creates Interactive Pop-Up

To celebrate the famous sports shoe named after American tennis icon Stan Smith 50 years ago, Adidas opened a pop-up store in London that was a scale replica of the iconic footwear’s shoebox. Apart from being able to purchase limited edition shoes, customers were also able to take part in an interactive experience which made use of 3D-printing.

3D Systems Cube printers lined the walls and gave customers a chance to personalize their lace locks. One of the most notable experiences was the ability to “Stan yourself,” a preview of an app by the same name that allows users to put their own portrait and signature in the place of Smith’s portrait and signature.

iBeacon Brings Art Gallery To Live

Digital agency Prophets has created an iBeacon-powered mobile app for Rubens House in Antwerp. Meant to be as tool for visitors of the respectable museum, this prototype demonstrates how cutting-edge technology can enhance the overall art experience.

With hopes to create an intricate network of digital content inside the house, Prophets positioned iBeacon sensors in just about every nook and cranny. Because of its small, wireless design, Beacons can be installed without any physical intervention in the historic structure of the building.

Push notifications sent to mobile devices connect people in close proximity, notifying them of the stories behind different paintings and architectures. iBeacon technology will change the museum experience, especially considering this type of technology hasn’t yet been incorporated in non-retail settings. Once established, iBeacon can offer a spectrum of possibilities, ranging from guided tours by theme to interactive learning experiences for children.

The (Mega)Faces of Sochi

London-based architect Asif Khan creates a 2000 sq.m pavilion and landscape for MegaFon, one of the largest Russian telecoms companies and general partner of the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014.

3D photo booths within the pavilion and across Russia in MegaFon retail stores will scan visitors’ portraits to be recreated in by the pavilion. It’s facade is designed to function like a huge pin screen. It is made up of over 10,000 actuators which transform the building’s skin into a three-dimensional portrait of each visitor’s face.

The concept is to give everyone the opportunity to be the face of the Olympics.

Australian fashion retailers partner with Westfield to create first Searchable Mall

“The Searchable Mall is the first of many global digital initiatives, enabled by Westfield Labs, which embraces the use of technology to better connect the digital shopper with our physical shopping malls,” said Steven Lowy, Co-CEO, Westfield Group.

Shoppers can now find fashion and beauty products available in their local Westfield shopping centre as well as finding stores, opening hours, deals, events and movie times across any screen, at any time. Whilst the platform helps inform shoppers from web to store, shoppers can also click-out to retailer websites to purchase products online.

Westfield’s research of 6,700 Australian adults that used the previous website as part of their shopping journey, found that those shoppers who browsed the website were more likely to visit their local Westfield, and spent significantly more than those who did not.

Marcy’s Begins iBeacon Shopping Test

Your iPhone could soon know when you walk into a Macy’s, and start telling you what to look for. Macy’s is the first major retailer to roll out support for Apple’s new iBeacons, a type of Bluetooth hotspot introduced in the newest version of iOS. Within the “coming weeks,” iPhone owners who use the retail app Shopkick will start receiving a notification when they walk into either Macy’s Herald Square, New York or Union Square, San Francisco locations. The notification will direct them into Shopkick’s app, which can alert them to deals and remind them of products they were interested in that are on sale at the store.

So far the trial is limited – Macy’s will only ping your iPhone when you actually enter the store. But down the road, Macy’s might also ping shoppers on a department-by-department basis, possibly telling them about sneaker sales when they’re in the shoe section, or even recommending nearby products they could have an interest in. The iPhone integration is only a trial for now, but if it can actually get shoppers buying more clothes and goods, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Macy’s rolling support out to additional locations.
