NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - The Coveteur announces that it's taking you deeper into the closets of today's celebrities and fashion icons with a new site http://www.thecoveteur.com. Featuring twice as many exclusive photos and intimate videos, The Coveteur community can now collect and share their favorite images in their personal online Closet and share it with their friends. The Coveteur has also partnered with leading fashion retailers so consumers can "Get the Look" of select fashion tastemakers through an integrated online shopping experience without leaving The Coveteur website.
Today, the site is featuring original content from celebrities' closets including Rachel Zoe, Karl Lagerfeld, Lauren Conrad, Khloe Kardashian and Tommy Hilfiger.
To celebrate our favorite Coveteurs, past and future, we've created a video, "The Mini Coveteurs"
(#minicoveteurs); see attached (the video is best watched in 1080P-HD mode).
"We launched The Coveteur to enable our community to go behind the scenes to explore where fashion really begins - the closet. Our exclusive photos and videos tell unique, engaging fashion stories as you travel into the closets of today's fashion icons and explore their treasures," said Erin Kleinberg, co-founder and Creative Director of The Coveteur.
"Our new website further establishes The Coveteur as an innovation leader" said Janet Bannister, CEO of The Coveteur. "For the first time, you can create your own online Closet with your favorite images from across the website. And you can seamlessly shop items inspired by our Coveteurs without leaving the site."
To create your own Closet, you click the "Covet" button that appears on each photo and the image is added to your online Closet. You can then share your Closet with friends and browse others' closets to see what inspires them and culminates their style.
The Coveteur has also partnered with leading fashion retailers so you can capture the style of your favorite fashion icon without leaving the site. Consumers can "Get the Look" of their favorite fashion tastemaker through The Coveteur's integrated online shopping experience which allows consumers to shop and check-out from multiple retailers without leaving The Coveteur's website. Initial ecommerce partners include Shop Les Nouvelles, Joie, Loeffler Randall, Alex & Chloe, and Fragrancenet.
The Coveteur has earned industry respect since the site launched in January 2011:

art of personal style, and what it means to have a look that's
distinctive and original." - Grammy®-nominated rapper, Drake

"I can happily attest that the team behind [The Coveteur] is as talented, perceptive and wholly creative as they seem… They will
go down in the fashion history books as a group that elegantly bridged
the gap between public and private in the fashion world." - Susan
Cernek, Executive Editor of Glamour.com
- "They have a great eye for interesting pieces - it's nice to see what they gravitate towards and how they make ordinary things look extraordinary." - Karla Martinez, Fashion & Accessories Director of W Magazine
