Mytheresa expands Vestiaire Collective partnership into the U.S.
The partnership, first launched in June 2021, includes a unique resale service for Mytheresa’s high-end luxury customers. Following the success of the shopping service in Europe, the brand is now aiming to convert more of its high-end customers to circular fashion in North America.
Mytheresa offers a highly curated edit of over 200 brands focused on true luxury brands such as Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Loewe, Loro Piana, Moncler, Prada, Saint Laurent, Valentino, and more. Beyond fashion, it most recently expanded its luxury offering to home décor and lifestyle products with the launch of the category 'Life'.
“After great success in Europe we’re excited to bring our unique and innovative partnership with Vestiaire Collective to the hugely important US market,” said Michael Kliger, Mytheresa CEO.
“The resale service will provide a real benefit to our loyal U.S. customers by giving their designer pieces a second life while at the same time we fulfill our ESG commitment to drive circularity within the industry.“
To participate, Mytheresa’s top customers in the U.S. can join a dedicated landing page, where they enter required information, and are given a price quote for their pre-loved item.
The item then arrives at Vestiaire Collective’s U.S. authentication center, where it undergoes quality and authentication checks. Once verified, customers immediately receive a payment in the form of a Mytheresa store credit.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Mytheresa to serve the United States market. We’re confident that U.S. customers will appreciate our trustworthy authentication service and the simplicity of our platform, which has already been met with resounding success in Europe,” said Maximilian Bittner, Vestiaire Collective CEO.
“By introducing more luxury consumers to resale, we hope to amplify its importance in building a more sustainable and inclusive fashion industry.”
Launched in Paris in 2009, Vestiaire Collective currently offers an inventory of 3 million items. It operates offices in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore and has a tech hub in Berlin.
