Immersive digital shopping experience, available on mobile, desktop and VR headset
Alo Yoga announced it has launched an immersive digital shopping experience complete with virtual reality integration, digital styling capabilities, streaming beauty and wellness tutorials, workout classes, and seamless checkout. Alo has partnered with experiential e-commerce platform Obsess to launch the immersive virtual store, which users can experience via desktop, mobile, or the Meta Quest 2 VR headset.
“We are excited to partner with Obsess to launch the first Alo Yoga virtual store that our community can experience through the Meta Quest 2 VR headset,” said Angelic Vendette, VP & Global Head of Marketing at Alo. “The immersive virtual store powered by the Obsess platform will help us reach and engage the Alo community wherever they are and allow us to share our Spring launch, along with our core collection, in a 3D environment that feels unbelievably similar to shopping in one of our stores in real life.”
The Alo Yoga virtual store will enable visitors to browse, learn about, and shop Alo’s collections, interact with a variety of content, and build custom outfits to visualize how different combinations of Alo tops and bottoms will look. The virtual store will also feature selected workout videos from the Alo Moves fitness platform that are typically accessible only to paid subscribers.
