Rental services have been buzzing in the fashion industry for a while now – but there are still quite few players committed, and concepts need to be optimized. On the consumer end, an increasing number of people are embracing the idea – and what’s not to like? It’s a chance to try out temporary trends and a way of extending your wardrobe without buying new things. Renting or leasing plays an important part of the sharing economy that’s spreading in other areas of our lives; we no longer necessarily own the cars we drive or the music we listen to, right?
On our local market Sweden, there’s a new player in town. It’s Re:Leased’s subscription service offers three items every month (for 750 SEK). You choose garments from their online library, including brands like Stine Goya, HOPE and Filippa K as well as some curated vintage pieces. When a month has passed, It’s Re:Leased notifies you and handles the pickup, laundry and possible mending needs (it’s all included in the price).
We love the concept and definitely encourage you to try it out! Below, we’ve listed our favorite picks available for subscription right now.
