CHANNEL21 and nubizz have partnered to be the first to bring Metail's Try On experience to MONACO blue’s customers

nubizz have partnered with Hanover - based CHANNEL21 - one of Germany’s leading TV shopping channels - to allow shoppers to use the Metail Experience on MONACO blue. For the first time in Germany, women will be able to try on and shop the latest collections from MONACO blue straight from their smartphones*, tablets or desktops at www.monaco-blue.de/

This partnership enables women to try on MONACO blue clothes online, and be confident that what they purchase will fit and suit them. The addition of the Metail Experience will enable MONACO blue to target a new demographic of shoppers, giving the fashion savvy, middle aged woman the time to explore and experiment with her style.

The Metail Experience on Monaco Blue

The Metail Experience allows users to create a three dimensional model of themselves and virtually try on a range of fashion garments. After entering a few simple measurements - height, weight and bra size - shoppers can generate a ‘MeModel’, which is 92-96% accurate to their specific size. The user can personalise their MeModel further by adjusting their waist and hip measurements, choose their skin tone, and can even style their MeModel’s hair by putting it up or down.

Alongside delivering an engaging and truly personalised digital experience online, Metail allows brands to better understand their shoppers. Whether it’s their average size and shape, styling preferences, or garment choices, the Metail Experience creates the opportunity to deliver an unparalleled set of customer data which can inform partners ongoing.

Klaus Skripalle, Managing Director of CHANNEL21

“We’re thrilled to be working with Metail and bringing this innovative shopping experience to the German market. By enriching MONACO blue’s ecommerce platform and delivering a new way for shoppers to explore our clothes, we believe we can unlock a new demographic of tech savvy customers for our collections. We want our shoppers to enjoy fashion and are committed to delivering innovation ongoing.”
