Since many years now, the notorious French brand Hermès and its iconic designs have become a predominant brand in the world of fashion. Today, we can say without hesitation that Hermès handbags are timeless pieces and have thus become more than just handbags but are in fact, investments.
Unfortunately, the success of the resale of Hermès articles is plagued by counterfeit. We have always believed in the importance of intellectual property rights and the conservation of the brand’s value. French jurisdiction concerning counterfeit is very strict and we have always developed our company with these strict but legitimate laws in mind. We are therefore more and more concerned with the explosion of e-commerce, and the pre-owned counterfeit Hermès handbags that have come along with it, some being so well made that they’ve even been named.
Thankfully, there are still ways in which we can detect even the most well-made counterfeit products. Numerous clients (buyers and re-sellers) have contacted us regarding authentication methods, and we have thus decided to take active action against counterfeit products.
As you know, we are a French company specialized in the expertise and resale of luxury articles predominantly of the Hermès brand. Our company MODE LUXE is based in Paris and was founded in 2010 by us, Vincent Lhopital and Alex Boissieres, both passionate collectors of Hermès for more than 10 years now. Our reputation for quality, authenticity and excellent customer service is valuable to us.
We decided to put our vast knowledge of the Hermès brand to use by creating a luxury marketplace in order to help buyers and sellers in their respective domains. In fact, many professionals know the Hermès brand and its fabrication methods but mostly those recent methods dating to the 2010s. Many are those that have difficulty authenticating previous models due to their age (vintage quality), discontinued colours or leathers, or because of fabrication methods different to that of the 80’s and 90’s…
Also, be a buyer or seller, a partnership with our company’s authentication service can be complementary to the efforts to which you have consecrated so many years; guaranteeing your clients 100% authenticity. For the consumers, your platform will offer a written certification, implying an attentive examination - via detailed descriptions and photographs - of the products in question. For the buyers, the authentication guarantees their affiliation to the platform as well as a better reputation among the market’s key players. For each authentication, we are able to provide an opinion regarding the quality of the product, this with a 100% guarantee. Our location in Paris is a big advantage as we are surrounded by some of the best Hermes experts in the field right here in our city.
