NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring, a mobile marketplace where customers shop directly within the app from a curated community of brands, launches today for iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store. Founded by Alan Tisch, David Tisch, Octavian Costache and Ara Katz, Spring was built with the belief that mobile shopping should be simple. Driven by a vision to create an elevated, easy-to-use mobile shopping experience, Spring offers customers a mix of luxury labels, emerging designers, fast-fashion and beauty, as well as home and lifestyle brands all in one place. Brands post new arrivals daily and customers can purchase with a simple swipe.
Customers can follow their favorite brands to personalize their feed or shop by category and influencer collections. Shoppers store their credit card and shipping details in their account, so instead of a traditional shopping cart, every purchase is made with a single swipe and the brand ships the order directly to the customer.
"Consumers love the seamless life apps offer, but nothing existed like that for shopping," said Alan Tisch, Co-Founder and CEO. "Spring is a truly unique retail experience for both customers and brands that makes going shopping on your phone easy and exciting."
Spring puts hundreds of brands at a shopper's fingertips. From luxury labels and emerging designers to beauty and fast-fashion, Spring reflects the way customers actually shop. Brands on Spring include Opening Ceremony, Warby Parker, Steven Alan, Alice + Olivia, Everlane, Prabal Gurung, Band of Outsiders, Levi's, Jennifer Fisher, Pierre Hardy, Stila, Alternative Apparel, Rachel Zoe, Public School, Jason Wu, Frame Denim and many more, with new brands launching every week.
Brands control what products to post, when to post, and how much inventory to make available in their Spring shop. From their latest collections to exclusive items, limited editions and one-of-a-kinds, brands use a compelling mix of lifestyle imagery, look book photography and e-commerce detail shots, creating a unique shopping experience.
As a marketplace, Spring holds no inventory. Instead, Spring's revolutionary technology integrates with a brand's existing e-commerce system to create a truly seamless experience. For many brands, Spring is their first and only direct-to-consumer retail channel.
