As I like introducing you new places where to shop, I came through a “new” e-shop, The Cools, which is a “social marketplace where you can discover and buy from independent brands, boutiques and sellers”. In fact, it is not a common e-shop because the company is just a middle-man between the brand and the customer, they take around 12% of the sale, directly from the brand which avoid a lot of costs (avoiding poor payers) from the brand where the designer can then make more money of his business, the brand manage its own page so you can directly interact with them.
From the beginning The Cools was not that great, from June 2011, it was just a den for thousands brands, mostly different and far from making one identity. So from this January the company decided to create this identity, they washed away thousands brands to keep only a hundred relevant brands (to 300 from today) which are matching the new and re-defined identity of the shop. This new relief is aiming at new and original designer to give them the chance to be under the spotlights through a famous company. 

Comme j’aime bien vous présenter de nouveaux endroits où faire du shopping online (et à travers quelques sponsors (2) qui sont signalés, donc celui-là n’en est pas un), j’ai atterri sur The Cools qui est plutôt une plateforme sociale qu’être une boutique à l’état pure, où vous pouvez découvrir et acheter à des marques, boutiques et vendeurs indépendant. C’est une sorte d’interface entre le client et la marque, the Cools ne prend que 12% sur la vente et permet justement à ces petits indépendants de dépenser des grosses sommes dans la logistique (on évite les mauvais payeurs) et permet donc de faire plus de bénéfice. La marque gère sa page personnelle sur le site et on peut donc directement interagir avec eux.

Depuis le début The Cools n’était pas si bien, en fait depuis juin 2011 c’était juste une sorte de repaire pour des milliers de petites marques qui étaient toutes tellement différente que le site n’avait pas d’identité propre ou de direction. Alors depuis ce mois de janvier, ils ont fait le ménage et créés cette identité qui est importante à tout magasin, ils ont gardé seulement une centaine de marque (pour en arriver à 300 aujourd’hui) qui correspondent à cette nouvelle identité redéfinie. Cette relève en quelque sorte, vise les nouveaux créateurs/entreprises originaux afin de leur donner une chance d’être visible à travers un site internet connu.

Red Hot Sunglasses

After my long break I had to re-think in what way I wanted to continue my blog, what contents to share, what thoughts. So I decided to share more with you and also where I shop, where I look for new items so as I did on my French blog I am about to introduce you an e-shop. At this time of the year I am always looking for new sunglasses to get them around June when I get back to France, two years ago I went for the 649 (I thought it was the Steve McQueen one but apparently no) model by Persol and last year I went for some Gucci in tortoise (yes two pairs in tortoise, but I like it).  The e-shop is called Red Hot Sunglasses.
A lot of famous brand will be soon available on their website such as Moscot and Burberry. You will find again, Ray Ban, Prada, D&G, Chloé and Givenchy and something surprised me, they had the Alexander McQueen collection available! Of course there are more choices for women with Valentino, Vivienne Westwood and Tods. What I found interesting in this e-shop, was the arty side of the boutique, each brand has its own banner related to the collection, like for Alexander McQueen, pictures from the accessories campaign were used to made the header.

An outlet is available among their blog – If you want to know, I want this pairs – the square aviator by A.McQ in Red. My birthday is on the 24th of April just to let you know! ;)

Cheers,

Thomas
