HOW TO RENT SMART & BRING JOY TO YOUR WARDROBE

THE POWER OF COLLABORATION

On the Eurostar en route to Paris for our very first buying trip for Onloan in 2019, my co-founder Tamsin & I vowed not to come home without a partnership with Mother of Pearl. We are most excited about brands that combine great fashion with standout ethics, and Mother of Pearl epitomises this.

Lo and behold, we met the brand’s formidable creative director Amy Powney, hit it off immediately over North-East-London life and the craziness of the fashion industry, and the rest is history. Fast forward nearly 2 years and we are so, so proud to collaborate with Amy on The Full Circle.

We’re combining Mother of Pearl’s sustainable supply chain, with Onloan’s rental and pre-loved service, so that every stage of a garment’s life is carefully considered. Whether you’re renting to try-before-you-buy (no more ill thought-through impulse purchases), or to feel glorious in a “MoP moment” (no more worn-once-and-never-again), this collab is for you.

RENT TO TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

We’re big fans of the luxury of road testing a wardrobe addition before you make the final call on it, which is why the Try Before You Buy option is a key player in our collaboration.

Rent a piece that you’re curious about, and if you decide it ticks all of the boxes for you, you can purchase the garment – minus the rental fee you’ve already paid. Or if it’s not quite right, no worries, send it back for someone else to enjoy. It’s a win-win.

This is super cool because it means switching up impulse purchase behaviour to something that is more considered and slower. Late night online shopping regrets begone.

RENT A MOP MOMENT

Make your next special occasion one to remember for all of the right reasons by ditching the purchasing guilt that often comes with event dressing. A UK fashion industry first, our pals at MoP are offering a direct line to Onloan rental via their ecommerce platform.

Say hello to a whole new world of options that allows you (a conscious shopper) to come unstuck via rental in your quest to find that showstopping, albeit one-time, Mother of Pearl piece.

“We recognise there are life moments that require a great outfit you may never have another event for – by renting you are able to enjoy items that signify a moment in your life or mood but may not have a place in your forever wardrobe. C/o Onloan these items will then be rented and rented again for others to enjoy,” says Amy Powney, and, naturally, we couldn’t agree more.
