Luxury for Less: eBay and What Goes Around Comes Around Partnership
Luxury lovers who don’t want to pay retail will be pleased to learn that eBay and online designer consignment firm What Goes Around Comes Around have announced a series of exclusive fashion capsule creations. The first collaboration will launch on Thursday June 20th, 2019 on eBay in their What Goes Around Comes Around online store.
The first limited-edition collection will feature more than 1300 unique luxury items from both women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, lines. Shoppers can expect to find auction listings for luxury accessories and vintage pieces from designers like Hermès, Gucci, Chanel, YSL, Fendi, and more.
This is the first of several limited-time collaborations launching in the next year. The collection can be viewed in the brands’ “Peace, Luxe and Rock and Roll” look book. The look book features celebrity models Alexandra and Theodora Richards, daughters of Rolling Stone icon Keith Richards. The collection is designed to be a homage to the influences that music (specifically rock n’roll) has had on fashion. According to eBay, “From musical movements and summer concerts to the emergence of festival season, each piece represents important moments in culture. Highlights from the collection include: a Hermes Blue Croc Porosus Kelly 40, Chanel Red Belt Bag, Zandra Rhodes Tunic, Chanel Studded Messenger Bag, Halston Dress Set and Levis 501 jeans.
With thousands of special pieces, more than 600 of these incredible items will start at $9.99, with no reserve.” The low auction starting piece is a marketing tactic to attract many bidders, but that doesn’t mean these luxury goods can be bought for low prices. The auctions are designed to attract multiple bidders and as veteran eBay shoppers know, items can go well above or even close to their retail price in the bidding frenzy that can ensue as shoppers become determined to “win” the coveted item.
