Gucci Launches Amazing, Interactive Web Site

After 18 months of anticipation, the house of Gucci has finally relaunched its Web site. The final product marks the most advanced Web site a luxury brand has ever created, offering consumers a new level of interactivity and insight into the brand.

Gucci has joined other fashion houses like Burberry and Ralph Lauren in livestreaming their runway shows. But the luxury giant took it a step further, combining real life with virtual life, so that livestream subscribers receiveda digital invitation to the Sept. 22 Spring 2011 show along with a virtual front row seat. In other words, fashionistas could watch the show via webcam, Twitter, Facebook or live chat on the Gucci site.

But Gucci didn’t stop there – it also added Twitter and Facebook integration, message visuals and multiple view features to its site. Viewers could click through the show as it happens, posting reactions onto their Facebook profiles or sending links to looks through their Twitter feeds.

Click on the “discover the new digital flagship” link on the bottom right corner of the site, and you’ll find a short Youtube-esque video that offers a complete guide to Gucci’s new Internet home. You’ll see a pretty impressive collection of features, including “enhanced navigation,” “cinematic imagery” and an overall “multifaceted brand experience.” Fun additions include peeks into the lives of the Gucci family, behind-the-scenes looks on how products are made, and social-networking integration tools that allow shoppers to share favorite Gucci looks with friends.

The company has high hopes that this e-commerce project will be successful in driving sales, even to the point of eclipsing stores: “The destiny of the digital flagship store is that it will become our highest-volume store in the world,” said Gucci president and CEO Patrizio di Marco. So far, the features have catapulted Gucci to a new level of digital marketing, creating a new brand strategy that connects directly with consumers on a level of depth previously unheard of in the luxury market.

    Good Morning. I have not been on this page since may. It was mainly because I was vacationing to Paris because of my business at CIGNA Corporation. It will take a considerable amount of time from me, but I still think about your write-up. I remember our days at College of Saint Joseph (VT) in Florida. So glad that we had a experience to have fun nearby the pool. Kindly forward my compliments to linda and dave. Tchao

    Hi. I am a inexperienced Biological Technician and was hoping to better be set up for my employment at AT&T Corp. This is the reason why I came to your web page. Being raised in Chancellor and choosing to class at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center–Shreveport in Semmes, has helped me to prepare for my future. My mom and dad are really also course instructors and they shared with me about this blog entry soon after studying Grandma, the Baby and Me. Appreciate it

    Hola. I am a completely new Business Professor and was wishing to better be well prepared for my career at United Technologies Corporation. This is exactly why I came to your post. Being brought up in Woodland and attending to school at Louisiana State University–Alexandria (LA) in Jackson, has helped me to get ready for my future. My dad and mom are also tutors and they taught me about this post right after reading Cuthbert’s Babies. Cheers
