Exclusively for eLUXURY



Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from eLUXURY

    SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/
 -- eLUXURY, the leading luxury Web site, and John Galliano, the renowned
 fashion designer, today announced the launch of the Galliano e-boutique and
 the creation of a new sportswear collection that will be sold exclusively on
 the eLUXURY.com Web site.
     John Galliano is the latest prestige luxury brand to join eLUXURY's
 growing arsenal of exclusive luxury shops, which includes Louis Vuitton,
 Christian Dior, Baccarat and by Terry.
     Best known for his style-setting gowns worn by stars such as Nicole
 Kidman, Sigourney Weaver, Cate Blanchett and Sophia Coppola, and for his
 Christian Dior designs, Galliano was the creative force behind the new eLUXURY
 e-boutique.  Featuring fashions from both the John Galliano collection and a
 new, Internet-inspired sportswear collection called "Galliano's Girl," the
 e-boutique reflects the fun, anti-conformist style of the Galliano brand.
 The "Galliano Girl" collection is the designer's first foray into the casual
 sportswear category and includes swimsuits, T-shirts, jackets, pants, dresses,
 scarves, handbags, sunglasses and jewelry with a unique Internet Girl pattern.
     "eLUXURY and I speak the same language," said John Galliano.  "The
 company's image and its commitment to delivering the highest level of service
 are combined with a true respect for the creative process.  That creative
 freedom is apparent in both the design of the boutique and the exclusive
 collection."
     Visitors to the John Galliano boutique are guided through four virtual
 dressing rooms by a Galliano's Girl, an illustrated, sexy, comic-book style
 heroine with attitude.  The designer integrated zoom and detail functions to
 enable customers to distinctly view the fabrics and cut of the apparel.
     "John Galliano is the perfect addition to the eLUXURY assortment of
 prestige brands," said Barbara Wambach, CEO of eLUXURY, the LVMH Moet Hennessy
 Louis Vuitton affiliated web site.  "Our customers want access to the newest,
 hottest fashions available.  The launch of John's e-boutique puts his cutting
 edge styles at the fingertips of every fashion trendsetter in the country."
     "The idea behind this new line of fun, modern sportswear was to create
 something very Galliano, with an easy fit and popular price positioning to
 attract a broader customer base," said Valerie Herman, chairman of John
 Galliano.  "By partnering with eLUXURY, we have a wonderful opportunity to
 test the John Galliano brand in the U.S. bridge market."
     The Galliano's Girl and her friends were designed by the John Galliano
 studio.  Mother, a Paris-based Internet agency, worked in close cooperation
 with the Galliano team on the design of the e-boutique.
