Products are offered for sale on the website by each fashion designer, in accordance with the concept of a consignment shop.
The boutique’s products are presented on the website with the necessary features, conforming to article L 111-1 of the French Consumer Code. This statute entitles the potential customer to read the essential features of the products he/she intends to purchase before effectively placing an order.
Offers on the website are valid within the limits of product availability.
Products on offer comply with applicable French law and norms. We shall not be held liable for the consequences of abnormal use by the customer.
If the customer is domiciled outside of the French customs territory, it is his/her duty:
