Harvey Nichols announces the launch of an innovative new luxury resale service in partnership with Reflaunt from the 26th August 2021.

Posted: 6th August 2021

Reflaunt’s mission is to build a world of positive consumption by bridging luxury fashion brands with leading second-hand marketplaces, encouraging consumers to extend the life of their pre-loved items through resale.

It boasts the largest second-hand community in the world, with 50 million shoppers across a network of 25 international marketplaces. Harvey Nichols’ customers are now able to resell not just bags, but any luxury piece in their wardrobe including fashion, accessories and even watches, whilst earning up to 80% back of the original price, in the form of a direct bank transfer or enhanced value through Harvey Nichols vouchers. Harvey Nichols’ prestigious shopping experience is now further elevated with a hassle-free way to give a second life to past purchases that benefits both the planet and customer’s pockets. To join the circular fashion revolution, customers can simply drop-off items at one of the dedicated collection points in Harvey Nichols stores* or London-based customers can choose to have their pieces collected by the Reflaunt Concierge.

Everything else is then taken care of, from authentication to pricing and the uploading of imagery, for a simple and flawless customer experience. From September, customers further afield in the UK can also take advantage of the service, with complimentary shipping, whilst later in the year, Reflaunt will also launch globally in key international cities across Europe and Asia.

Manju Malhotra, CEO of Harvey Nichols said; “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.” Stephanie Crespin, Co-Founder of Reflaunt said; “We are incredibly excited to offer Harvey Nichols customers an accessible way to resell their past luxury purchases.

At Reflaunt, our mission is to make it as easy and scalable as possible to extend the life of garments and prevent them from ending up in landfills, ultimately shifting consumer habits towards conscious consumption of higher quality products.”

Founded in 2018 by Stephanie Crespin, Felix Winckler and Philippe Benedetti, Reflaunt is leading the way on bringing fashion full circle by offering a seamless and integrated journey in which customers can purchase, wear, and resell their products in just a few clicks. All products listed through the Reflaunt Resell Service are automatically uploaded onto a global network of leading second-hand marketplaces and when an item is sold, the customer receives the payment or vouchers.

The Reflaunt Resell Service will be available online at and in Harvey Nichols stores across the UK from the 26th August 2021.
