Updating your wardrobe is even more guilt-free with the launch of eBay's new 'Imperfect' shopping section, which is not just purse-friendly, but planet-friendly too.
So, what is Imperfect? In a nutshell, a load of high street and designer brands (180 to be precise, including Versace, Off White, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Timberland and North Face) are selling imperfect products for less, basically the equivalent to supermarkets' wonky veg initiative.
The treasure trove includes returned items with defects such as a small scuff, mark or a missing button, to ex-display products, which means they can’t be sold at full price as it did not meet the manufacturers strict quality standards.
Therefore, these slightly-less-than-perfect pieces are being sold at huge reductions, so we, the consumer, can give them a new life and save them from being wasted.
There's something for everyone in the family, too – from designer handbags (we're eyeing up this Saint Laurent handbag, which has minor scratches and you could save nearly £900) to children's shoes and men's jackets.
For peace of mind, eBay also has two features to help customers shop with confidence. Authenticity Guarantee: listings marked with a blue tick mean that the item is verified by professionally trained authenticators before delivery.
Plus, Authorised Seller, which means the item is being sold directly through the brands eBay store.
While the majority of discounts go up to 60% off, which is already a great saving, a more thorough browse and you can find discounts of up to 91%. Case in point: These Joseph linen trousers are now reduced from £185 to only £16.65.
The new Imperfect section sits within eBay's little-known Brand Outlet, which is already bursting with major brands such as Mountain Warehouse, L.K Bennett, Oliver Bonas, Joules and Hobbs. In the outlet, the items are often clearance items sold directly by the brands, so you can shop with total confidence.
