You Can Carry A Birkin For Just $250 This Summer


Twenty thousand people are anxiously waiting to access this fashion platform.

Villageluxe, luxury fashion’s version of Airbnb, allows invite-only Luxers to borrow and lend pieces in their closet to fellow New Yorkers. It is redefining how people shop, and we couldn’t be more on board.

Cocktail night with the girls? Borrow an Alexander McQueen dress from the chic fashion editor down the street. Want to feel like Carrie Bradshaw and live out your Sex and the Cityfantasy? Borrow a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels and a vintage Chanel bag. And yes, you can claim a Hermes Birkin bag as your own for only $250 per week. With over $10 million in inventory listed, we’re pretty sure you can find some pieces that strike your fancy.

“Godmother of luxury e-commerce” Carmen Busquet (early investor in Net-a-Porter, Moda Operandi, Business of Fashion, and Farfetch) recently put $2 million toward the website and app, giving it the ultimate stamp of approval for future greatness.

We’ve chosen the best handbags New York closets have to offer at the moment. AND, Guest of a Guest has gotten an exclusive invite code for you to skip the waitlist. Because that’s how we do things around here. Enter summer18 on for insider access. Thank us later.


Hermes Birkin Bag

According to its profile, this Birkin just had a trip to the spa and is feeling brand new. The 40CM Ebene Birkin in Togo Leather retails for $13,000, but can be borrowed for $250.

Carry this baby to your next Hamptons weekend for ensured glances of pure envy.

Naked Chain Chanel Bag

Managing Editor at The Zoe Report, Lauren Carusoborrowed this gorgeous Naked Chain Chanel bag on villageluxe.

Here she paired it with a coat and boots, but it could easily go with a sundress and espadrilles.

Oh yeah, and while this bag retails for $2,000, you can borrow it for $40. STEAL.

J.W. Anderson Pierce Bag

Founder of Friend of a Friend and actual friend to your favorite super models, Olivia Perez is both a breath of fresh air and a quiet style star.

She plucked this J.W. Anderson bag (retail: $1700, borrow: $175) from the villageluxe platform, and it has never looked better.

Gucci Marmont

Cool girl and accessories aficionado Emily Kammeyer clutched this show-stopping red Gucci tote for a mere $200, a fraction of the retail price of $2,500. Steal a bit of her street style and borrow that bag.

Chanel Quilted Flap Bag

Ashley Nelson carries the most classic and iconic handbag: a quilted black Chanel Flap Bag. Normal retail: $4,600. Villageluxe borrow: $95.

Vintage Celine

It Girl Alyssa Coscarelli of @alyssainthecity carried this little, red vintage number from Celine – a true testament to the special nature of Villageluxe. Though the sticker price is $2,000, borrowing will only run you $50. Bargain.
