There is a new entrant in the growing fashion rental market.
Luxury Fashion Rentals, a new e-commerce luxury handbag rental site, offers customers a selection of original handbags from designer brands available for rent. Founded by YouTube fashion influencer Elaine Hau, the retailer provides an end-to-end customer experience, including handbag selection and direct shipping to the customer.
Handbags may be rented for 14- or 30-day terms. Customers can browse merchandise by designer, newest arrivals, or with a browse-by-occasion feature. If a handbag is unavailable, customers can add it to their wishlist and receive an email notification when it comes in.
Items are sent in a shipping/return box which customers can drop off at a UPS store with a free return label that is provided. Returns must be made in two days, with the return instruction tag still attached. Featured designers include Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Gucci, Dior, and Moschino.
"Luxury Fashion Rentals is committed to providing you with the best experience," said Hau. "From ordering online, to when your handbag arrives and when you're ready to return."
All first-time customers will receive 20% off their first order. Luxury Fashion Rentals also offers free three-day shipping for a limited time.
