Saving up on your extra Ringgits has never been sexier now that Portluxe is in town— here’s what to know about Portluxe boutique, the trusted brick-and-mortar for pre-owned luxury items in Hartamas.
Let’s face the fact — it is a dream to have a closet full of Chanel bags, Gucci loafers, and Hermes’ belt buckles. Also, that is a pricey dream which comes with a seriously damaging credit card debt, a dent in your mortgage payment, or worst — a hole in your emergency funds because you just could not pass up the latest Hermes Clic H bracelet. So what is one to do to keep up with trendy fashion woes? Shop another person’s closet for a fraction of the price.
Portluxe is a secondhand luxury retail boutique (they have an e-commerce site too) which is based in Plaza Damas. You are in for a treat as Portluxe buys and sells authenticated luxury designer goods from bags, clothes, and shoes. The marketplace for pre-owned luxury wears is still new in Malaysia, however, with its timely introduction, it could not be a better affordable shopping alternative than ever before. Besides selling curated goods, Portluxe’s business model also includes buying luxury goods from customers for the resale of the product. This homegrown brand is a brainchild of one of Malaysia’s rising entrepreneurs, Nadia SM Nasimuddin, who also helms a beauty retail website and F&B outlets like BLVD House and Dotty’s cafes.
Here are the top five things you should know about Portluxe and why it is a brilliant shopping spot :
Portluxe prides itself on its spectacular lineup of local celebrities and influencers such as Marion Counter, Deborah Henry and Nadia Nasimmuddin herself as major contributors to the luxury consignments. Just like shopping your favorite influencer’s closet, you can get a piece of Nadia’s or Marion’s luxury goodies in your collection for a fraction of the price.
Off-season, vintage, and in-season unique finds
Another great way to stand out from the crowd is to dress differently with one-off pieces like a vintage Chanel sunglasses or Dior pumps from four seasons back which are difficult to attain. Consignment shopping enables customers to find rare pieces which enhance the shopping experience and also taken as inspirations to spice up their personal styles. Portluxe curates a huge range of brands thus it is highly likely to score amazing pieces to perk up your wardrobe. All items on display in the store are simultaneously available to shop online, thus the majority of the goods comes in limited quantity and even shorter time frame before it gets snatched by the next customer.
Smart way to declutter
Apart from buying luxury, how about making money from selling your least-used luxury items? We would like to call it as “return of investment” as Portluxe provides a platform for us to sell our unworn designer pieces for a return, and possibly generate enough of money to buy another pre-owned item. ‘You lose some, you win some,’ as the saying goes. Portluxe also permits consignment, which means a seller can put up their selected goods for the purpose of sale but still maintain ownership until the goods are sold. Sellers make commissions up to 60% of the sales of their goods, and Portluxe ensures to pay the sellers within 30 days of the sale of the item via bank transfer.
Efficient authentication process
Counterfeit goods are a nightmare and the skeptics have all the reason to doubt the authenticity of a designer item. Here in Portluxe, they have a reliable authentication process whereby each item is vetted through Authenticate First, an authenticator recognized by Paypal for dispute resolution. Every item includes a detailed description of its condition and images of any signs of wear as well as undergo a comprehensive multi-step cleaning and rejuvenation process prior to sale.
