Narciso Rodriguez launched e-commerce last week, so all the shoppers who are fat-of-wallet and tired of slogging their way from department stores to boutiques to other department stores for select pieces, rejoice. And for everyone else, it's an opportunity for the minimalist-lovers to source inspiration for workwear and date nights (we're thinking this shift and this strappy number, respectively). Narciso Rodriguez chief executive officer Robert Wichser told WWD that the company is treating the site "as our flagship store" because they don't have a brick-and-mortar location yet. "We believe it has global reach, and it's one area that ties the world of Narciso Rodriguez into one," he said.
Some quick and dirty notes about shopping the new site: Returns must be postmarked within seven days of receipt, except for final sale items, which are non-returnable. Right now, you can shop shoes, bags, fragrance, and the spring and resort 2013 collections, so take a look at the clean items above and get to shopping here. And should you want to fill a Narciso need but don't have the bones, there are still $10 tuxedo trousers, $8 color-blocked leggings, and $14 dresses from his DesigNation collab at Kohl's.
