Re-Luxury The first Show Open To All Dedicated To Rethinking Tomorrow's Luxury
RE-Luxury will be the first event dedicated to the re-commerce of luxury and collectible objects, as well as to initiatives in the field of the circular economy.
Did you know that more pre-owned watches are now sold worldwide than new watches? The market for pre-owned and sustainable luxury items has exploded in recent years, and this is just the beginning. This more economical and environment-friendly trend is especially popular with the younger generation: 70% of female luxury buyers make their first luxury purchase via a vintage product.

"The luxury resale market is set to last and grow; it completely transforms the notion of ‘consumption’ into ‘investment’; and these are investments that over time often have a value higher than the initial purchase price", commented Fabienne Lupo, who initiated this new event.
Have you ever bought pre-owned luxury goods - with no anxiety and in a climate of complete confidence and transparency? Do you have precious objects (watches, jewelry, handbags and luxury fashion) that you would like to have valued, certified and potentially resold? This is exactly what Re-Luxury will enable you to do.
- Find and buy rare, unique or collectible pieces, all authenticated and certified by the luxury brands, platforms and retailers present at the Show.
- Bring your precious objects and have them evaluated by the recognized experts available at the fair.
- Re-sell your models to the same actors, who are looking for items to buy and resell.
In short, the aim is to implement this positive circularity that everyone is talking about and that our planet and our economy so desperately need at a practical level. Re-Luxury will be a multi-sector showcase for watches, jewelry, fashion, handbags and luxury accessories. Among the participants of this first edition is the global ecommerce leader eBay who, as the founding partner of Re-Luxury, will be presenting their unparalleled selection of authentic luxury goods, including handbags, watches and jewelry - top categories for the marketplace.
