Luxury Bags Revived at The Handbag Clinic
Capitalising on the increasingly rapid boom the designer handbag resell market is seeing, the Handbag Clinic has quickly established itself as the go-to for the fashion pack. Originally founded in 2013 by pioneering husband and wife duo Ben and Charlotte Staerck, the now international group has stores across the UK, Monaco and the Middle East.
Setting the benchmark for handbag restoration, Handbag Clinic’s renowned expertise has seen its ateliers quickly gain global acclaim for its ability to revive treasured arm candy to its former glory with an impeccable attention to detail.
From Hermès to Chanel and Louis Vuitton, the Handbag Clinic’s skilled craftsmen cover everything from minor touch-ups to completely repainting bags, replacing damaged hardwear and reinforcing stretched handles. Having handled more than £40 million worth of designer handbags since being founded, the group continues to expand into new avenues reaching out to the demand in consumerism through its newly launched resell and bespoke at-home concierge service.
Allowing avid connoisseurs the convenience of having a dedicated ambassador come to their home, the Handbag Clinic gives clients the flexibility to have their bags assessed, authenticated and restored to then be sold through its network of stores and e-commerce platform without having to leave the door.
The innovative approach to selling bags once having them restored gives clients looking to sell the maximum potential to profit on the resell of their coveted bags without losing out due to wear and signs of age. Equally as appealing, the service gives those looking to invest in a piece of coveted arm candy the confidence that bags have been vigorously authenticated and revived offering buyers the chance to buy from an extensive range of reasonably priced pre-loved bags.
Spanning over 900 square feet and across three floors, the Handbag Clinic’s flagship store sits in the heart of Chelsea along the iconic King’s Road and has recently undergone refurbishment allowing for the introduction of showroom styled boutique displaying the store’s most sought-after collections.
Completely bespoke, the Handbag Clinic’s services are all tailored to each individual client. To restore, authenticate or to buy a preloved luxury handbag – or to sell a handbag and obtain a quote from Handbag Clinic’s team of pricing experts – customers can visit a store, or visit Handbag Clinic’s ecommerce platform. London based customers can also book a home consultation through the website.
