As more and more people lean towards sustainable fashion, we are beginning to embrace the “less is more” mentality. Known figures such as Marie Kondo and Fumio Sasaki help us to treasure what we already have and to lessen our material possessions. One of the best ways to shop consciously is by purchasing preloved or secondhand items.
You are not only saving the environment by going for preloved items, but you are also saving money by paying less. Moreover, shopping for preloved designer bags can be fun as it lets you discover the unique pieces form past seasons or decades. Standout from the crowd with a unique piece as you discover the following places where you can buy or rent preloved designer bags in Singapore.
Zalora is one of Asia’s fashion e-commerce giants. If you are looking for preloved designer items from shoes to bags, look no further than Zalora Singapore. It has partnered with Singapore-based second-hand luxury company StyleTribute to offer over 10,000 preloved fashion pieces. You can also pair a preloved designer handbag with a vintage jewelry piece from the same store.
Reebonz is a well-known website that hosts a wide range of new and preloved luxury bags and accessories. The website curates designer labels from affordable luxury brands such as Alexander McQueen and Tory Burch to high-end luxury brands such as Prada and Hermes. Some brand new bags are offered on discount too. As you browse the shop, do not forget to read the condition or description of each bag. You see, they have a grading system from unused quality to good condition.
#3: MADAM MILAN
With several physical stores in Singapore, Madam Milan is a popular place where you can buy or sell your luxury bag. What is nice about Madam Milan is its ability to collect limited edition bags, vintage bags, and in-season bags. Furthermore, you may pay thru a monthly scheme (e.g., S$50 per month). Visit the physical or online store to learn more.
As mentioned a while ago, StyleTribute is a marketplace with highly curated pieces. Every luxury item is authenticated by a team of in-house experts. You can either purchase a preloved designer handbag or sell yours through their white glove service. Your item will be collected and listed or you can upload your listing using a mobile app.
Taking the last spot is Lendor – an Airbnb for personal belongings. From hiking equipment to luxury bags, you may rent fashionable items for affordable rates. You have the option to rent a luxury bag that you will only use for a single event. Shoppers have the ability to try out their dream luxury bags before committing to a purchase. For instance the Celine Luggage Bag is listed as S$30/day.
Lendor’s mobile app may be fairly new to the scene, but it is certainly gaining a fair amount of buzz.
