“The resale value of designer goods is dependent on a number of factors. While most designer pieces lose some of its value after purchase, there are always the classic few that hold or even increase in value including Hermès and Chanel. Of course, resale values for luxury goods can also fluctuate based on the economy, fashion trends, the designer of the brand or whether the item is the next “It” bag,” says Emily Dang, co-founder of SnobSwap. “Brands such as Givenchy have increased in resale value over the past few years, due to a changing of the guard with the talented designer Riccardo Tisci.”
The most popular categories that shoppers are buying used are dresses, shoulder bags, pumps, sandals, and tops. The average buyer spends around $300 on a pre-owned designer item.
The data is primarily based on shopping behavior on SnobSwap’s web platform. Snobswap will also be launching a mobile app this fall.
