This Hotel Lets Their Guests Borrow Designer Handbags, For Free!

We’ll take the Gucci for lying by the pool and the Louis V for dins, tnx.

If you thought the best bit about staying at a hotel is the shampoo freebies your world is about to be rocked. This hotel in Miami has a library of designer handbags that their guests are allowed to borrow, at no additional cost.

It’s always nice to have access to a beautiful swimming pool, an in-house gym, and other luxuries when checking-in on holiday. Lately, hotels have been upping their amenity game; the most Instagram-worthy the better because a Story flexing your Barbie-themed bed is amazing free advertising for them. The SLS South Beach Hotel in Miami, Florida now offers a wide range of beautiful (and expensive AF) designer handbags that their guests can borrow when heading out on the town.

The hotel has partnered with the luxury membership service Vivrelle to make their guests’ luxurious dreams come true. Vivrelle recognised a gap in the market for those of us who want nice things but can’t bring ourselves to spend a month’s rent on a clutch. If you subscribe to their service (the cheapest option works out to R1500 a month) you’re allowed to borrow gorgeous designer pieces from them for as long as you want. And if you become really attached to it you can buy the item at a reduced members-only price. Best library ever.

Now Vivrelle has set up a stash of stunning pieces from names like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel that guests of the SLS can get their hands on. The service is free and unlimited, so you can swap out your day-time Fendi number for a YSL piece that matches your dinner outfit better. This means you can get to try out a piece like one of those massive Chanel bags that look like a hula hoop without actually having to buy one of those massive Chanel bags that look like a hula hoop!
