Real Clothes Shopping via Home - Thoughts?

27 Replies 531 Views Created 22-05-2012

Brand identity. A part of our modern consumerist culture. A first world problem at times, if you will!

Do you sometimes ask yourself "oh, those clothes I bought for my avatar would be great to have in real life"? Did you know a lot or most of the threads by Diesel, Billabong, and smaller brands like Jon Burgerman are virtual counterparts of real ones? Well, now you do!

 

So picture this - you could buy these clothes via Home and have them delivered to your door by partnered outlets. Sony could make additional commision of sales via Home so it's a tempting proposition to them. They could also offer bundle deals like "Buy a real one get a virtual one free" , or access passes to spaces by getting the real clothes a bit like they already do with virtual clothes and items now.

 

So in short,this idea encompasses:

*Buy the clothes you like on your avatar, but for yourself!

*Do this via the wallet system (duh).

*Increased sales and bonuses for all involved.

*Perhaps entice a new market of user into Home or broaden the fashionista one.

 

What are your thoughts guys?

Would any of you do this? Would it work?

Given the chance there's a couple of items I'd probably buy in real life, if they weren't sky high like some outlets tag them up.

Great idea and i like the concept behind it. Although i wonder how long it would take before we saw screens going up in every space with max Factor adverts everywhere. Didn't take Youtube long :/

Superb idea Ed and one I will most certainly pass on and with fingers crossed it gets implemented, however as usual there will most likely be some big hurdle to jump over to get something like this into reality, most probably legal issues.

 

We can live and hope though, and if ya don't ask ya don't get etc.  Definetly worth a pop anyway.
