There’s The NSA And Then There’s Net-A-Porter

November 8, 2013 • Fashion

Net-a-Porter recently introduced a nifty feature spiffed out with voyeuristic vibes that shows you the products that women all over the world are purchasing in real-time. Drag the map around to see that a woman in London just bought a black Helmut Lang frock, one in LA just picked up a Kenzo tiger-print parka, and another in Australia just purchased a lace and satin top. Just who these women are, we’ll never know. Except that we can easily make it all up. Herewith, 10 women who just made purchases on Net-a-Porter Live, at 9:47 PM on a Thursday evening.
