The thing about luxury products is that they have the ability to last longer than their time with one owner. The whole idea of buying one is that it’s an investment piece; you aren’t buying it because it’s trendy. There is considerable thought and intention that goes into spending the money that most luxury items tend to cost. When you buy luxury bags, you buy them for life. There’s never a thought of, “Oh I’ll wear this a few times.” Then, ideally, the items get passed on to someone else so they too have it for life. The lifespan of luxury bags can outlast generations if they are well looked after, which is why so many vintage bags are priced so high. Such is the nature of the circular economy and why it’s so helpful in creating a more sustainable future for luxury shopping.
Sites like The Real Real, Fashionphile, and Rebag have cornered the luxury resale market. They have garnered the trust and faith of costumers coming to them for quality and authenticated products. The prices are fair and patrons can feel good knowing that their purchases are contributing to sustainable fashion. Of course, you’ll still need to save up but you can realistically buy a classic bag that you’ll always love, or indulge in a specialty bag that you can’t get anywhere else. And while some bags aren’t meant to be in your life forever, you can rest easy knowing that if and when you decide your bag has reached its final days with you, you can always resell it back to these sites so it can live on with someone else and you can find a new treasure to take in. We’ve taken the liberty of rounding up some of the best luxury bags you can get now on these resale sites to inspire you to pull the trigger on a special one.
