Luxury resale: How to swap your old designer piece for a new one New air in your wardrobe.
As you already must have realized, Notorious editors have sustainability at heart, and nothing’s more sustainable than buying resale and luxury vintage. So whether you like to score unique designer clothes, bags, accessories and vintage jewellery nobody has or want to empty your wardrobe, luxury consignment sites to buy and sell pre-owned goods are the smartest way to do it. Fashion-savvy influencers and stylists have already jumped on this eco-conscious shopping wagon, and several resale shops and sites offer online hand-picked luxury designer fashion.

But now you can swap your older designer pieces for new ones.
So, we are happy to share with you that there’s a new player in the luxury resale game. Net-a-Porter, one of fashion enthusiasts’ favourite luxury designer online shopping sites, offers now a new resale service. The difference between other pre-owned online shops and Net-a-Porter is that when you sell your designer pieces, you can choose to receive your resale earnings as a Net-a-Porter gift card. In this case, you will get an extra 10 per cent to spend. In other words, you can easily swap your old designer pieces for new ones. All you need to do is select what you don’t wear anymore. Reflaunt, working in partnership with Net-a-Porter, collects the items you want to sell, authenticates, photographs and list them for resale. Similarly, The Outnet and Mr Porter will soon have luxury resale for those interested in conscious consumption and circular fashion. We see re-commerce as a true enabler to tap into greater product longevity by extending the lives of pre-loved purchases, says Alison Loehnis, President at Net-a-Porter, Mr Porter, and The Outnet.
