I was recently introduced to The Luxury Closet, Middle East’s leading marketplace for buying and selling new and pre-loved authentic designer items which is my fashion discovery for the week. Perfect if you’re thinking of investing in some vintage gems, or would like to sell some precious pieces. Instead of just focusing on accessories – they have everything from bags, shoes, clothing, jewelry, watches and accessories from brands like Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton to name a few. There really is something for everyone depending on what your budget is, without breaking the bank and if there are items that you don’t see yourself wearing as much, it’s the perfect place to trust with selling them and making some money off them.
Everything is quite curated, so you can find limited rare finds that you wouldn’t really see in stores anymore in lower prices compared to the high mark ups most of those pieces have elsewhere.
With quite a few marketplace options out there, two things stood out for me:
-Authenticity: Their items are checked individually by a special team of authentications and they offer 100% lifetime authenticity guarantee – which makes me trust that every single item is authentic.
-Buying: They offer a 3-day return policy and offer cash on delivery throughout the GCC – so there really is no pressure.
