Pre-loved luxury is the go to move for buying fashion not only in honour of Earth Day but also for everyday. Purchasing second-hand luxury goods not only is the best way to shop responsibly, protect the environment and preserve it from more extensive damages, but it also is a great opportunity to support and promote sustainability in fashion. Creating a sustainable fashion closet is an important and fundamental step to start giving back to our Earth.
A wide selection of unique bags, accessories, clothing, jewellery, collectable and accessories for your four legged friends from luxury brands and premium designer is waiting for you here at Fancy Lux. What are you waiting for? Give yourself a present and make a gift to our planet.
Why second-hand luxury?
Sustainability in the fashion world is not just a buzzword anymore and second hand-luxury is the new fashion trend to get on board.
At Fancy Lux we care about sustainability, conscious that pre-owned luxury is the best choice for the environment because it promotes circular economy, saves resources by decreasing the waste of water and helps reducing the amount of chemicals used in the production of new pieces of clothing, while at the same time allows to extend the life cycle of the single garment reducing the amount of items of clothes destined to the landfills every year.
Just as a reference, 84% of all the textiles produced end up in incinerators and landfills where it takes them more than 200 years to decompose. Many important brands on the scene have been vocally supportive of the need for sustainability in fashion and have taken steps towards a more sustainable way of making fashion. In 2020 Gucci has launched Off The Grid, its first sustainable collection, while Burberry just became part of the Sustainable Luxury Movement and together with its Econyl Capsule collection presented this past August, in a further effort for sustainability, the brand pledged to produce its first climate neutral collection by 2022.
Sustainable Fashion for Earth Day and beyond
Every year on April 22, the world honours our beautiful planet. And what is the best way to celebrate Earth Day? The gift of giving back to earth with a purchase. Pre-loved, pre-owned second-hand luxury is the perfect choice for every fashion addict that wants to shop guilt free, one of a kind pieces and give back to the environment at the same time. The fashion industry is the second most polluting of the world, almost every single second there is a truckload of fast fashion being incinerated or landfilled, the promotion and implementation of a circular economy through buying and selling second-hand luxury is a great way to mitigate the impact of the industry on the environment.
The movement towards second-hand luxury shopping is becoming more and more the most important alternative of consumption in the fashion industry and Fancy Lux is proud to be a champion of it.
