Kendo Brands Teams with LiveArea as its Digital Design Partner
Marc Jacobs Beauty, Ole Henriksen, and Kat Von D Beauty Get Makeovers
November 14, 2018
LiveArea, a leading global commerce services provider and business unit of PFSweb (NASDAQ: PFSW), completed the redesign and launch of three online flagship stores in the Kendo Brands beauty portfolio: Marc Jacobs Beauty, Ole Henriksen, and Kat Von D Beauty. Kendo is a leading beauty brand incubator that creates or acquires brands and focuses on developing them into global powerhouses.
- In redesigning Marc Jacobs Beauty, LiveArea created an online store that mirrors the look and feel of the high-fashion brand, but adds a beauty dimension tailored to the purchase of cosmetics.
- For Ole Henriksen, LiveArea designed a new online store that reflects the brand’s refreshed direction. The product line was modernized and streamlined, so LiveArea translated the new branding to a vibrant online store and product showcase aligned with the brand’s look and feel.
- Kat Von D Beauty’s distinctive spirit, values, and stylized aesthetic is reflected in LiveArea’s design of the label’s online store, which captures the beauty brand’s essence through bold imagery, user experience, and editorial content.
“We chose LiveArea to design and create compelling client digital experiences for three of our brands because they have proven expertise in the beauty industry and strong skills on the Salesforce Commerce Cloud platform,” said Amy Lauer, Vice President, Digital, Kendo Beauty Group. “LiveArea has insight, vision, and experience we need to create an innovative online retail presence that captures the unique essence of each brand.”
Chief Revenue Officer and LiveArea General Manager Travis Hess commented: “Kendo Brands is an innovative brand builder in the beauty space and we are proud to team with Kendo to deliver stylized, digitally driven experiences that set each brand apart.”
