Klarna, a Swedish fintech company that provides online and in-store financial services including buy now, pay later, is opening a U.S. pop-up shop in Los Angeles focused on supporting its mission-driven merchant partners.
Open July 23-24, "Klarna Oasis” will offer exclusive discounts on fashion, beauty and accessory brands, such as Lunya, Rebecca Minkoff, RE/DONE, Christy Dawn, Kjaer Weis, Westman Atelier and The Detox Market. The discounts and collection of partner brands will also be available online via a dedicated hub within the company’s website.
"We're excited to bring the smooth Klarna shopping experience to life for the first time in Los Angeles, spotlighting mission-driven merchant partners that support a range of important causes from sustainability in fashion to clean beauty," said Raji Behal, global head of partner success at Klarna, in a release.
Klarna Oasis aims to offer a one-stop shop to purchase conscious fashion and clean beauty products, all available for Klarna's popular, interest-free "Pay in four" increments option at checkout.
With sustainability a core focus for the pop-up, shoppers will also be able to donate gently used shoes and clothing in exchange for an on-site discount in partnership with nonprofit Soles4Souls.
To support the launch of the in-store experience, additional programming includes a fireside chat on the importance of regenerative agriculture within the sustainable fashion movement on July 23. Speakers include Raji Behal, global head of partner success at Klarna; Aras Baskauskas, co-founder and CEO of Christy Dawn; and Jasmyne Spencer, professional soccer player at Angel City Football Club, of which Klarna is a founding partner.
"Christy Dawn is proud to partner with Klarna on such an exciting, impactful initiative. We believe that all shopping should be conscious-shopping and Klarna Oasis allows consumers to make more educated purchasing decisions," said Christy Dawn's Baskauskas, in the release. "What's more, we love knowing that by partnering with Klarna, we're providing our Christy Dawn community with a new and easy way to shop regeneratively."
