At a time when brands are leveraging on digital platforms to drive online operations forward, this comes as no surprise. And Farfetch, being the base for luxury fashion that it is, is a smart choice to join forces with, especially with its recent announcements. Farfetch has already linked-up with Burberryit's absorbed Condé Nast’s Style.com e-tail operation – and adding to that itsacquisitions of Browns, CuriosityChina and Stadium Goods.
