As virtual and augmented reality experiences continue to transform today’s consumer experience, global lifestyle apparel company Kontoor Brands, Inc. announced the launch of its new virtual stores for two of the world’s most iconic brands, Wrangler® and Lee®.
The virtual stores invite consumers to navigate interactive three-dimensional retail space, browsing items in a store setting before seamlessly adding them to their shopping cart. The digital shopping experience creates a striking real-world experience without the stress that can accompany in-person shopping.
Drawing from an extensive portfolio of products available online and in stores, the virtual stores will feature the brands’ latest innovative design, top selling items, and current seasonal styles.
“Digital evolution is a critical component of our growth strategy as we enhance the overall omnichannel consumer experience,” explains Christopher Reid, VP & GM of Global Digital at Kontoor Brands. “Through these new virtual stores, we are offering consumers a more immersive experience with our products and the opportunity to engage with our brands in a curated store experience that brings to life the unique characteristics of each of our brands.
The Wrangler and Lee virtual shopping experiences are an example of the investment Kontoor Brands is making in its ongoing digital evolution, leveraging a consumer-centric approach to engage existing customers and acquire new and younger audiences. In addition to offering a fresh way to experience the best of both digital and in-person shopping, these virtual stores provide an enhanced consumer experience while delivering on Kontoor’s commitment of continued digital acceleration.
