The British manufacturer and online retailer of sports and fitness apparel Gymshark took off since its inception and is one of the best-known sports brands around. When selling fashion items online, it is important to give the customer a clear idea of the products even though they do not have them physically in front of them. All clothes and accessories at Gymshark are therefore presented on models, in different, sporty poses, to show how the different materials behave. Gymshark is one of the world's most popular Shopify Plus Brands.
5. Live Fast Die Young
The online store design of the fashion label Live Fast Die Young is completely oriented towards the young target group and uses various functionalities that are familiar from Instagram. Familiar icons are used and the scrolling behavior of the app's features is adapted.
LFDY also switched from another store system to Shopify Plus with the help of Latori. The main reason for this was the increasing success of the brand and the associated higher click numbers. In addition to the migration to Shopify, Latori realized other requirements, such as programming a color change feature on detail pages.

Lensit is the Norwegian subsidiary of Mister Spex and sells contact lenses as a pure e-commerce company via its own online store. The Norwegian brand switched from local software to Shopify-Plus to replace its outdated architecture. A particular challenge here was the approx. 4,000 variants of contact lenses.
Reading tip: In the interview with Ulrich Tietze, you will learn how these and other challenges were overcome with the support of Latori.
7. The Female Company
The Female Company is taking off thanks to Shopify Plus, Latori and many functions. A mix & match bundle function, for example, ensures that customers can put together their bundles individually. But customers can also choose the right bundle from predefined bundles. Tracking was also an important point for The Female Company. Therefore, Latori has connected various tracking tools such as Google Analytics or Facebook Pixel.
8. Victoria Beckham

10. Kylie Cosmetics
Kylie Jenner also relies on Shopify Plus for her cosmetics line KYLIE Cosmetics. The website is divided into three sections by the colors white, black and pink. Visitors are directed by color coding to either the main Kylie brand, the Kylie Cosmetics makeup line, or the Kylie Skin skincare section. On each subpage, the color of the main navigation conveys which section it belongs to. The Shopify Plus store is one of the best known and generates millions of dollars in sales annually.
Ooia has made a noticeable impact on the German market with their feminine hygiene products. Your Shopify Plus store is fully designed for a D2C strategy here. However, Latori customer ooia focuses not only on product sales, but also on interaction with store visitors. Another important aspect for ooia is educational work.
The fact that Shopify-Plus is ideally suited for sales in niche markets is also demonstrated by the Outdoorchef company. With its gas kettle grills, the Latori customer appeals to BBQ gourmets with a special eye for design.
The unique rectangular shape of the grills is reflected in the geometric shapes of the website. Different areas are separated by strong contrasts and the call-to-action buttons stand out in their own way as the only colored element in a bright green. A successful Shopify Plus store!

Buying cars in an online store? The e.GO brand uses its Shopify Plus website not so much to sell its innovative electric cars as to showcase them and arrange test drives. Just like e.GO's vehicles, the Latori customer website stands out. The customer always has an eye on what it's all about through image videos or product presentations on one half of the screen and receives further information on the other.
The history of Allbirds began with sheep and shoes. The New Zealand brand first developed sustainable shoes from the special material merino wool. In the meantime, the product portfolio also includes other items of clothing in addition to shoes.

Horando is one of the leading providers of luxury watches in Germany. Horando takes advantage of the wide range of functions and extensions of Shopify Plus, such as headless commerce. This means that the frontend and backend are separate from each other. Latori created this for Horando, connected it and provided it with content. Horando also benefits from the multilingualism that can be realized with Shopify Plus.
