Bonfaire: Your Exclusive First Access To Pre-order Designer Accessories (SCS Readers Get $100 Off First Order Too!)

Fountain of 30

January 31, 2013 • Accessories, Fashion Blog, Luxury


Considering the last thing you put on is the first thing people notice, it was just a matter of time before someone launched a site dealing exclusively with designer accessories. Well what if you could be the first person on your block to have that ‘soon to be flying off the shelves’ luxury handbag? This past fall a new site addressing this exclusivity launched. Bonfaire is an online, members-only online luxury showroom committed to showcasing the best products from the world’s most talented designers. The site features world-class designer shoes, handbags and accessories available for pre-order, months before the items are released in stores.
Now I know this is the case in NYC and Chicago as I am sure it is in every other city around the US, but it seems like all the department stores carry the same “It” bags, need-to-have shoes and coveted accessories. For instance on the Upper East Side it seems to be the Celine Luggage Tote and in in your city it could be the Proenza Schouler PS 1. However, what if you don’t want to look like everyone else or at least be one of the first to have that hot find, without having to roam the streets of Milan searching for it?

Well Bonfaire then is sort of like your global personal shopper. They travel to Paris, New York, Milan, London and other incredible locales in order to curate next season’s hottest accessories for pre-order. So now you can be your own buyer and get early access just like department store buyers do. Admire and buy items that may never be available through other retail channels here in the US.  You get to shop the latest trends before anyone else and lock in your ‘must-haves’ before they are sold out for the season or you discover your favorite department store didn’t pick up those shoes you would have sworn they would (that happens to me all the time!).

So if you are one of those people who prides themselves of being on the forefront of style and trends, and want to know what’s coming before it hits mainstream stores, you might want to give Bonfaire a look. Now, remember, you are pre-ordering, so if you are one of those people who sees something and needs it right away or just hate to wait, you are going to have to try. Most of the items are pre-production, but don’t fear. You will still have it before almost everyone else.

Second City Style readers who join Bonfaire using this link, will automatically receive $100 to use towards their first (I’m sure of many) purchases when signing up for membership.
