Farfetch still dreams of being a global luxury platform
Coupang acquired Farfetch last month and saved the company from bankruptcy, and now Coupang’s founder and CEO Bom Kim is sharing his hopes for the luxury e-commerce platform. In a conference call with analysts where Kim shared the company’s fourth-quarter earnings, he also mentioned a plan to make Farfetch self-funding, reports WWD. “We hope in a few years we’ll be having the conversation about how Coupang turned Farfetch into a business that transformed the customer experience around luxury fashion while also providing strategic value for Coupang,” Kim said. “It’s too early for that conversation today. Even if that full potential is not fully realized, we’re highly confident that this will prove to be a prudent financial decision.” {WWD/paywalled}

Glorifying the past, definitely not,” Van Noten told Highsnobiety. “Look, I respect the past, I respect tradition, I respect the know-how, our own, but you have to make collections for the future.
