Coming to an internet near you, Alexander McQueen and Karl Lagerfeld have launched new websites within a week of each other, and they are as interactive as they are shoppable. McQueen's site is more of a redesign than a launch, but it marks a huge expansion of the McQ and Alexander McQueen e-commerce reach—namely, from just the US and UK to the rest of Europe. Also, now you won't have to field trip to the MET in order to see the McQueen archive because the site is set to include all films and pictures from collections past and "special projects material," WWD reports.
Then there's Karl. His website includes e-commerce for his "Kollections," of course, plus a "World of Karl" tab that includes his favorite places to shop for paper, for example, or eye-wear. There you'll also find updates on his always expanding extracurricular activities, and the "Karl Says" page, which offers quotes in English and French in written and video form.
