We’ve all seen luxury designer bags in magazines (or these days, on Instagram) and think, “Gosh, I wish I owned that bag”. But let’s be honest, most of the time if we do invest in these expensive bags, we would only be using them for special occasions. On the other hand, not all of us can afford to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on one single handbag. Thus, many of us turn to Shopee or other retail outlets for cheaper options. Nevertheless, sometimes these ‘inspired’ bags just don’t look or feel like the real ones. But what if we told you there were ways you could rent luxury designer bags in Singapore? And no, this is not a drill! Here at Glitz, we’re introducing you to some platforms to get the best designer bags.
1. Style Theory
If there’s one thing that Style Theory understands about us women, it’s that no matter how much we shop, we still have that desire for new things. However, when we do buy new items, the environmental impact leaves us feeling guilty. Thus, Style Theory was born to conquer those obstacles and offer a platform for us to rent luxury bags in Singapore. From as low as $99 per month, you can rent from a total of 2,200 bags. In addition, you can add on repair costs for minor wear and tear during your rental for only $10. But that’s not all as Style Theory also provides convenience, where every bag is delivered to your doorstep. You can also get a replacement on your first bag if it doesn’t meet your expectations. Lastly, you can pause or cancel your subscription at any time – we love it!
Price: $99/month for 1 bag/month OR $129/month for 2 bags/month
Where to rent: Style Theory
2. That Bag I Want
Are you someone who’s looking for different bags every week? Then That Bag I Want is the ultimate platform for you to rent luxury designer bags in Singapore. At That Bag I Want, you get to choose the available bags and how long you would like to rent them for. The shortest period you can choose is 1 week and you can rent the bags for up to a month. However, unlike the subscription method, bag rentals here are based on the type of bag you decide on. Thus, different types of bags are of different rental prices. In addition, if you feel like you would like to own the bag, you can actually buy it from them! That’s right, you get to purchase the bag of your choice at a cheaper price. Furthermore, if you change your mind in 4 weeks, you can resell it back, where a maximum of 95% of the purchase price could return to you.
Price: From as low as $45/week (prices to vary depending on the type of bag)
Where to rent: That Bag I Want
We’re pretty sure you’re familiar with Carousell, a resell platform that many Singaporeans use on a daily basis. Well, similar to Carousell, Lendor is a rental platform where you can rent luxury designer bags in Singapore. The bags aren’t owned by Lendor themselves but are from owners throughout Singapore. Due to the fact that it’s a platform for many owners to use, you can find a variety of items to rent. We’re talking about electronics, sports equipment, board games, luxury fashion, and so much more. Furthermore, you don’t have to be tied down to a weekly or monthly rental. Yes, you can rent it even just for a day! That’s perfect for someone who’s looking to just use the bag for a few hours. In addition, you can opt to have the item delivered to your home or you can pick it up too.
Price: From as low as $5/day (prices to vary depending on item)
Where to rent: Lendor
4. Bag, Borrow or Steal
Sometimes we don’t know what a product would feel like without trying it first. Therefore, most of the time we would request a sample (if it’s makeup products or fragrances). However, with bags, you’re only able to hold them for a short period of time at the store. But now you can carry it with you for a month to see if you like it with Bag, Borrow or Steal. This platform allows you to rent luxury designer bags in Singapore for as low as $50 a month. If you haven’t decided in a month, you can choose to hang onto it longer as they automatically renew your monthly rental. And if you love it too much to let it go, you can even buy it from them for a fraction of the original price. Nevertheless, it’s important to note that these bags are pre-loved. But they are definitely maintained very well so it’s like owning a brand new bag!
Price: From as low as $50/month (prices to vary depending on item)
