As Hugo Boss sets to launch its pre-loved online platform, we’ve been inspired to check out the luxury pre-loved stores here in Dubai.
The resale industry is growing and becoming more popular in the luxury department due to the benefits that come with it. Not only does buying second-hand reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry, saving on average an estimated 44% of C02 emissions when compared to buying new, but it also gives customers the opportunity to find vintage products and high-end brands at discounted prices. We dive into the world of pre-loved in search of hidden gems.

Reem’s Closet story began when founder Reem herself was very young. With a love of all things fashion and a confessed shopaholic, Reem wanted to share her collections with others and wondered just how many people also felt this way across Dubai. She became a conscious consumer, recycling her items, and opened her store in 2008. Reem’s Closet extends the lifespan of quality items such as shoes, bags and accessories, and a large collection of clothing too. Visit her welcoming boutique in search of Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta and Max Mara. It’s a hidden retail treasure waiting to be discovered.
