Luxury online retailer Farfetch has launched a new initiative which will help to support the circular economy, giving customers the chance to restore their luxury products, rather than automatically buying something new.

Farfetch Fix has been created in collaboration with The Restory, a company specialising in luxury aftercare, which will be responsible for repairing and restoring shoes, bags and leather goods.

The initiative has been made in an effort to simplify the process for customers who are looking to fix their favourite belongings, ones which may be looking slightly worse for wear. Restoration begins directly on the Farfetch website, where customers can book a collection. The piece will then be taken to The Restory’s atelier where experts will asses the item and make recommendations for service. Once approved by the customer, the piece will be restored and then returned.

“We’ve long drawn inspiration from Farfetch’s mix of excellence, purpose and boldness,” founder and CEO of The Restory, Vanessa Jacobs, said. “To power the new Farfetch Fix platform, and further the mission of more thoughtful consumption on this scale, is the culmination of years of hard work.”

“Farfetch will help a global community of luxury enthusiasts fall in love with their favourites all over again,” she added.

This initiative is the latest in a long line of efforts that Farfetch, and indeed many other luxury retailers, have made in order to encourage sustainability and more considered shopping. From supporting resale to increasing its edit of conscious designers and creating a sustainability calculator, the brand is giving its customer plenty of options when it comes to shopping in a less wasteful way.

“We are delighted to partner with The Restory to offer our customers access to the very best luxury restoration service, with Farfetch Fix,” director of sustainable business at Farfetch, Tom Berry, commented. “Part of the Farfetch ethos is to be the platform for good – championing initiatives that make fashion more sustainable. This partnership with The Restory will allow our customers to cherish their pieces for a little longer and hopefully also make more thoughtful purchases.”
