2nd life through sharing is fun

In the jewelry industry, 2nd life can mean two things. Either pieces of jewelry are made of recycled precious metals in order to save resources or luxury jewelry is sold through portals for pre-owned items. The watch industry has positioned itself as a pioneer and is now being pursued holistically. Platforms specialize in buying and selling used premium goods, giving them a 2nd life. Great side effect: Often they are timeless classics with an interesting background story or limited editions that are otherwise not available.

With 2nd Life, designer dreams come true

When it comes to designer fashion, 2nd Life opens up new possibilities for fashion victims: Birkin bags, Chanel boy bags or hyped Balenciaga streetwear can be bought curated. And those who could actually do without a piece, but can only part with a heavy heart, will definitely find a nice new home here to give the pre-loved designer pieces a 2nd life. Find out how and where to do this here.
