This will not be Amazon’s first venture into the realm of high fashion. The online retailer has been building its stock of luxury brands over the last few years, and is even collaborating with designer Osman Yousefzada for an Amazon exclusive capsule collection.

So far, neither Amazon nor Net-A-Porter have commented on these speculations.
