Since the online marketplace's launch in 2010, the company has focused on creating a site that is a “deeply engaging product,” commented Chris Morton, chief executive officer and co-founder of Lyst. Now, the company has “been able to turn more attention to our brand, with this new identity and content-based homepage forming the first of several exciting brand-led initiatives in the coming months.”
The website overhaul follows the online marketplace's record sales of over 10 million dollars for the brands and retailer’s Lyst partnered with throughout July. The company is thought to be on course to grow by 400 percent year-on-year for the third year in a row, with sales being bolstered by Lyst's overall checkout service which allows customers to purchase products from different retailers and labels through one checkout on Lyst.
Lyst currently offers over one million products from over 9,000 retailers, labels and designers across the world, featuring high-end designers such as Tory Burch, Isabel Marant and Alexander Wang as well as high street labels such as Topshop, Aldo and Cos.
