German recommerce fashion site Rebelle has acquired Danish competitor The 2nd Edit, WiWo.de and other media reported (in German) today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Luxury used fashion site Recommerce is headquartered in Hamburg

With the move, Rebelle, which also operates in the U.K., Italy, Austria and the Netherlands, expands to Scandinavia. The 2nd Edit brand will soon disappear and Rebelle will take over its sites serving customers in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, the reports said. It’s also not known if any of The 2nd Edit’ employees will be laid off.

StyleRemains GmbH, which operates Rebelle, was founded in 2013 in Hamburg and focuses on used designer-label fashion. It lets sellers list items themselves or via a site-managed consignment service. It lists around 100,000 items and the average sale is €300 ($349 U.S.), co-founder Cécile Wickmann told FAZ.de earlier this month (in German).

In October 2017, the company closed a “high seven-figure Euro” financing round to fund international expansion. A month earlier, Wickmann said the site pulls in eight-figure annual revenues and has year-on-year growth of over 600 percent.

In Germany, Rebelle competes with recommerce sites Buddy & Selly and Vite EnVogue, along with EBay’s Luxury Vintage hub. In Europe, it’s taking on French-based Vestaire Collective and VideDressing.
