The collection features contemporary and advanced contemporary brands like A.L.C., A.W.A.K.E MODE, Alex Perry, Dorothee Schumacher, Nanushka, and Rhode. New brands and styles will be launched into this collection monthly.

elysewalker and P180 expect that the introduction of rental into their omni-channel experience will both introduce new customers to elysewalker and drive margin improvement across their business by unlocking additional opportunities for product lifecycle management and inventory monetization.

“For over a decade, CaaStle has been at the forefront of apparel monetization technology,” added Hunsicker. “We are thrilled to partner with Elyse and her team, who have an unparalleled reputation for styling and curation, to create the most innovative digital experience in multi-brand retail today. With our technology in place, we can drive profitability while freeing her team to focus on identifying the brands and styles that will unlock their growth.”

“P180 represents the next stage of our shared commitment to drive positive change in the retail industry. By combining traditional methods of building brand relationships, merchandising, and curation with CaaStle’s technology and methodology around one-time rental and subscription rental, P180 can enable best in class brands and retailers like elysewalker to expand margin and drive the next transformation of the apparel industry,” said Hoffman.
