SSENSE/The new Polyvore homepage.

Montreal-based fashion platform SSENSE recently acquired Polyvore, a social-commerce website, from Oath Inc., a subsidiary of Verizon Communications.

Effective immediately, all Polyvore traffic is now redirected to ssense.com. The Polyvore app no longer has community and staff support.

Visitors to Polyvore's desktop site are taken to a SSENSE homepage with two shopping links and a message displaying, “Polyvore is now SSENSE.” Fortunately, the Polyvore community will have till May 10, 2018, to download their content from their respective profiles.

We’re excited to share our directional collection of the most coveted labels in the world.
— SSENSE

Members of Polyvore’s online community haven't quitely moved on though. Many have expressed grievances online for disloyalty and little notice given in shutting down the site and mood boards.

Since you’re here…

…we have a small favor to ask. Men Of Thrift's independent, fashion journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Men Of Thrift – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
