You may have read our post before regarding Amazon trying to enter into the world of fashion – specifically, designer fashion. And as hesitant as we were to accept this change, this recent news from eBay comes as another surprise.
eBay is allegedly moving into more luxury products and apparel through partnering with a the fashion startup, Spring. Specifically, sparing works with brands like Gucci, Prada, and Saint Laurent, which will all soon be live on eBay thanks to this partnership.
eBay has managed to find a brand that is willing to share its network and goodwill in the high-end fashion industry – something that Amazon chose not to do while entering the realm of fashion on its own.
We’re excited to see how this collaboration plays out. With eBay SPRINGing on this opportunity, how will Amazon cope?
