Watch Out Net-a-Porter: Yoox's Business Grew 25% Last Year

Yoox Group's net revenue was up 21.2 percent, with the bulk of that coming from its own multi-brand e-commerce sites.

In the world of online retailers, Net-a-Porter may get a lot of the press, but things are looking good for Italy's Yoox Group and the multi-brand designer e-commerce sites it operates.

In its year end report published Wednesday, the company stated that net revenue from its multi-brand sites --, and, which account for nearly three-quarters of its business -- was up 25.3 percent in 2013 at roughly $433.2 million. They did particularly well during the holiday season, with a 29.5 percent boost in net revenue for the fourth quarter.

Yoox Group has made the smart move of developing and operating websites for designer brands, which pays off when it comes to stocking its multi-brand sites. This year it added Fendi to's designer roster, while and added Bottega Veneta, Chloé, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, among others, to their lineups. Burberry launched on last month.

On the mono-brand side of things, Yoox Group launched Missoni's e-commerce site last year and renewed its partnerships with Emilio Pucci, Moschino, Napapijri and Maison Martin Margiela. Yoox Group also manages the sites of a portfolio of Kering companies including Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Brioni, Sergio Rossi, Stella McCartney and Saint Laurent. Net revenue from Yoox's mono-brand sites -- which accounts for a little more than a quarter of its business -- grew 11.9 percent in 2013.
