We at Bagaholicboy have been keeping tabs on 24 Sèvres for months now, eagerly awaiting its online debut and today we are happy to announce that it’s finally up and running! Touted to be the next big online shopping destination, 24 Sèvres is managed by Parisian department store giant Le Bon Marché that is owned by LVHM, which would also explain why you’ll be seeing leather bags from the likes of Dior and Louis Vuitton for sale online for the very first time ever.
Scanning through the list of designers, there are many brands now available online that weren’t previously available before, and besides Dior and Louis Vuitton, there’s also Miu Miu, Moynat and Prada. *squeal*
And before we start checking out stuff already in our cart *double squeal*, here are 10 things you need to know about 24Sevres.com stat.
01 – While it is true that luxury brands like Dior and Louis Vuitton are available for sale, they do not ship to Singapore at the moment (which you’ll realise once you change your location to Singapore upon checkout). Bah.
02 – There are, however, exceptions. Take, for example, Moynat, which has 7 pieces from their Mambo collaboration up for grabs. Baby steps, ok?
03 – And speaking of changing the location, once you do that, you’ll realise that prices offered online and in Singapore are not much different. Case in point? Loewe’s T-Pouch is priced at SGD926 (you’ll be charged EUR615) online but in Singapore it retails for SGD950.
04 – Express shipping to Singapore will only take 2 days and set you back by EUR20. Not bad, not bad at all.
05 – Brands you can buy online if you are based in Singapore? Lots. There’s everyone from the likes of Chloé to Gucci, alongside Givenchy, Loewe, Miu Miu, Prada and Valentino, just to name a few.
06 – Offerings now are on the scant side, but since this is still the soft launch we are pretty sure more will be added to their online inventory in the coming months.
07 – Also, everything offered online now is skewed towards women, so boys, you got keep those fingers crossed and just wait a little more.
08 – As with every good online shopping destination, there are exclusives to be found nowhere else. From a very special seasonal Hammock Bag from Loewe (SGD7096) to a pair of blue striped Roger Vivier flats (SGD7000), there are gems to be found if you look hard enough.
09 – Besides bags, you’ll also find RTW and shoes, alongside beauty offerings from brands we’ve never even heard before. Ever heard of Casanera? Or Granado? Maybe Phebo? Well, they are all available online at 24Sevres.com!
10 – Sadly though, there’s no sight of Céline, even though almost every other luxury brand under LVHM’s marque has made an appearance already. Still, a girl (or this boy) can dream and hopefully they will be offered online (and to Singapore) soon enough.
