Retykle, Asia’s largest online store for preloved children’s clothing, has opened a three-month pop-up shop at K11 Musea, Hong Kong’s harbourside mall, to encourage customers to drop off clothes their children have outgrown and raise awareness of the brand with purpose.
A curated edit from the more than 2500 designer kids clothing items will feature hundreds of new and gently used items during the event.
Designer brands include Jacadi, Bonpoint, Ralph Lauren, Seed and Moncler and hundreds of new stock items will be added daily.
Customers will receive up to 90 per cent off the new prices of their favourite designer brands and up to 60 per cent off exclusive past-season new items.
At the Retykle K11 pop-up store, customers who drop off a minimum of 10 children’s items for resale can receive an additional 10 per cent off same-day purchases.
The Retykle community has been created to encourage people to get familiar with sustainable consumption and minimise their environmental impact while getting the benefits of earnings and savings.
The fashion industry has negatively impacted our planet and is one of causes of the climate crisis. Many fashion brands and retailers should take action on protecting the environment by implementing low carbon and climate-resilient business models.
