Balenciaga Taps Into the Resale Space
Balenciaga taps further into the resale market space by launching a partnership with the resale platform Reflaunt. Balenciaga’s CEO, Cédric Charbit, is an investor in the resale service site. Customers can sell their pre-owned Balenciaga clothing and accessories in exchange for store credit. “Customers can drop off items at select stores, which are sent to Reflaunt to be authenticated, professionally photographed, and priced. The pieces are then listed on Reflaunt’s global network, which includes more than 25 secondary marketplaces, such as Tradesy, Vestiaire Collective, and Hamburg-based resale platform Rebelle.” More and more luxury brands have noticed the trend in the resale market and are including it in their retail strategies. This June, Valentino shared that it would begin selling vintage items obtained from customers in return for store credit, while Gucci’s Gucci vault includes vintage house pieces. [Vogue]
