Lord & Taylor has been launched as a digital Collective Store by its owners The Saadia Group.

As America's first and oldest department store, Lord & Taylor launched the careers of several American designers. From exclusive collaborations and merchandise to first-class service and unique events, this new chapter aims to bridge the 195-year heritage with a modern, innovative future. Alongside classics, the updated assortment will focus on up-and-coming and emerging brands. 

"The future of retail is fast and agile, mirrored by our team — which has managed to put together a fantastic assortment of merchandise and a website — in record time of less than 120 days,” said Jack Saadia, principal and co-founder of The Saadia Group. “We are deeply committed to continuing the rich legacy of the brand in a progressive way. Today's unveil is just the beginning." 

The platform is made to fit and evolve with the ever-changing customer. Exclusive collaborations, fresh assortments, new launches across categories and a robust private label offering will fill up limitless digital aisles in the next few weeks. To learn more visit

In August 2019, the brand was acquired by clothing rental business Le Tote for $100 million. Lord & Taylor closed all remaining stores in 2020, after Le Tote filed for Chapter 11.
