Innovator Award

Making it a three-time Personalization Award winner, the luxury fashion retailer has demonstrated continued leadership in product recommendations and early adoption of Dynamic Yield’s Affinity Allocation capability, which has allowed the team to automatically showcase the most relevant content to an individual based on their real-time preferences.
Awarded to organizations who have a complete grasp of experience optimization and push the limits of personalization to create real value for their customers and their businesses.

In 2021, luxury fashion retailer LUISAVIAROMA was awarded for creating a customized social media influencer landing page and personalizing the content per individual. In 2022, the team was recognized for fully integrating personalization within its mobile app, using dynamic content to highlight its sustainable products, and honing in on its VIP customers for specialized experiences. Continuing its now three-year streak of innovation, in 2023, LVR has taken advantage of Dynamic Yield’s new Affinity Allocation capability within the app to automatically pair visitors with the most relevant brand content in accordance with their real-time preferences, which has seen 4x the average CTR of its generic banner campaigns. The team also explored product recommendations in an unlikely but innovative place – the thank you page – launching a specific experience for VIP customers which has positively influenced same-session purchases.


Focuses on continuously optimizing all of its 40+ personalization campaigns on the website and mobile, heavily A/B testing different strategies, placements, and layouts to create a tailored experience for each user from a product catalog that encompasses many different genders, brands, locations, and price points.

Launches personalization campaigns on the web in a hybrid fashion, both via Dynamic Yield’s traditional script as well as its APIs, prioritizing site speed, data protection, and developer control following LUISAVIAROMA’s successful implementation of server-side personalization within the mobile app earlier this year.

Experiments with the latest personalization technology, going beyond the classic multi-armed bandit approach of delivering the best performing variation at that particular moment in time and leveraging an advanced affinity allocation method to automatically route traffic to the most relevant variation based on a user’s real-time affinity profile.

What’s next?

In the past half-decade, LUISAVIAROMA’s personalization program has grown to involve 7-8 members from different departments throughout the business, with each dedicated to tailoring the products and contents of its website and mobile app. Over the next year, the team plans to continue improving its 40+ campaigns as well as layering new ones into its roster, which will also come to include those delivered within email, as a new integration between Dynamic Yield and LUISAVIAROMA’s email marketing platform is being explored to create a more seamless customer experience across its selling channels. As a three-year Personalization Award winner, those reading this may want to consider the same.
