Lisa Aiken is now executive fashion director at Vogue.com

As commerce content becomes an increasing focus, Vogue.com has scooped one of the fashion industry’s most prominent buyers. Lisa Aiken has been named executive fashion director at the site, where she will lead commerce strategy and oversee editorial features that drive revenue. The British street style fixture was most recently at Neiman Marcus, where she was the director of fashion and lifestyle, following a long stint at Moda Operandi as vice president and buying director of fashion. In her new role, she will report directly to Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s chief content officer and Vogue’s global editor in chief as well as Mark Pilipczuk, senior vice president of consumer revenue at the company. “I’m very excited about Lisa joining the Vogue team at such an exciting time,” Wintour said of her appointment. “Our colleagues around the world are collaborating like never before and seeing incredible digital growth. Lisa’s extensive experience in a luxurious e-commerce space and building cross-teams across platforms. Her natural leadership has made her an exemplary choice for this role, and I look forward to seeing how she can further expand Vogue’s global footprint and pave the way for innovative partnerships.”

Saks Out East

Saks Fifth Avenue is coming to the East End…kinda. During three select weekends between July and September, Saks is partnering with Blade whereby flyers will receive a gift from Saks upon check-in and can enjoy Saks in the city cocktails from L’Avenue in the Blade lounge before take off. And if you’re not dropping a small fortune to fly to the Hamps, you can still get in on the fun as Saks will wrap certain Hampton Jitneys in their campaign branding too. Once more, Saks is offering same-day delivery from the city to The Hamptons for a $25 fee if customers based in Amagansett, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Montauk, Sag Harbor, Sagaponack, Southampton, Wainscott, Water Mill, or Westhampton place an order Monday through Friday before 10AM.
