Imagine an enormous pool, but instead of water, it’s brimming with handbags, watches, vintage jewellery and fashion accessories. All handpicked and carefully curated from the finest luxury brands across the globe, like Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Balenciaga and many more. Now imagine yourself in the middle of this exquisite and gleaming pool. Haven’t your deepest desires come true?
With an idea to cater to the price conscious yet brand conscious Indian middle and higher middle class, My Luxury Bargain started back in September 2015. The team carefully conducted sample surveys and understood that – the nascent stage of luxury market in the country and the flourishing pre-owned luxury fashion e-commerce websites in the west; were proof that the concept had to flourish in India. And it’s all been true. Each month the website is building a stronger presence in Metros and tier II cities. More and more individuals are selling their items through the portal and more and more foreign boutiques are signing up with the portal while buyers are getting the most coveted luxury items at an affordable price and the option to pay through EMIs.
The horror of online shopping i.e. counterfeits is something that MLB customers don’t have to bite their nails over. All items on the portal are authenticated by their partner authenticatefirst.com a leading online authenticating agency for many online portals in the US, Europe, Japan as well as India. The portal goes a step ahead to ensure transparency; each item gets a full page description, including a condition evaluation (new, like new, gently used & well used), complete measurements, fabric content, an illustration view and a zoom-in photo feature…. So there’s no guessing on exactly what you’re getting. In fact, few items still have their original tags/packaging and come with authenticity cards.
With a focus to increase their current product segment to more than a 1000+ luxury handbags and fashion accessories, My Luxury Bargain, also plans to expand into:
- Indian Ethnic Wear – from renowned Indian designers like Sabyasachi, Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra, Ritu Kumar
- Footwear and clothes
- Luxury technology like Vertu cell phones and high end audio systems.
