// Harvey Nichols teams up with Reflaunt to launch its luxury resale service
// Shoppers will be able to resell luxury items, earning up to 80% back of the original price
Harvey Nichols is joining the secondhand resale trend this month by partnering with the specialist service Reflaunt.
Launching on August 26, the Reflaunt Resell Service at Harvey Nichols will allow customers to resell bags and any luxury piece in their wardrobe including fashion, accessories and watches.
Sellers will then earn up to 80 per cent back of the original price when the items are resold on the online service via the department store’s website in the form of a direct bank transfer or Harvey Nichols vouchers.
Items can be dropped off in Harvey Nichols stores in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Edinburgh or Leeds, while Reflaunt’s concierge service will pick up the goods up from London addresses.
From September, shoppers from outside the UK will also be able to use the service with free shipping.
Founded in 2018, Reflaunt brings luxury fashion brands together with leading second-hand marketplaces, encouraging consumers to extend the life of their pre-loved items through resale.
It boosts the largest second-hand community in the world, with 50 million shoppers across a network of 25 international marketplaces.
Harvey Nichols chief executive Manju Malhotra said in a statement: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Reflaunt, to offer our customers a circular model of consumption and ensure luxury fashion items are given the longer lifespan that they deserve.
“This innovative service provides customers with an effortless way to part with their pre-loved items and in rehoming them with a new owner, not only earns them Harvey Nichols vouchers, but closes the fashion circle.”
