LOVE ME and LEAVE ME has pioneered luxury online shopping since 2006, being the first to offer Australian women the choice to BORROW or BUY gorgeous, coveted, high-end designer accessories from world renowned designers.

The company continues to revolutionise the retail shopping experience by launching their first luxury rental concept store in Armadale, Victoria.  The store allows customers to touch, feel and get up close and personal with their favourite designer bag, dresses and accessories.  All of the designer clothing and accessories are available to be borrowed from the store for the week or month, making those coveted pieces more accessible than ever.

Just their online boutique, the concept store is every designer label lover's dream - CHANEL, PRADA, LOUIS VUITTON + CHLOE bags decorate every corner, HERMES + GUCCI scarves are elegantly scattered throughout the mirrored space, and mannequins are dressed in vintage couture and latest season's must-haves.

Preston Zly Shoe of the Week: Avignon Wrap Boot

Made on our sleek Avignon last which was developed in collaboration with Melbourne design duo MATERIALBYPRODUCT, Avignong Wrap Boot takes its clean lines and plays with the concept of the cowboy boot.  Removing the inbuilt platform of the Avignon, a highly polished stacked leather heel is added, along with a natural rand and stitched sole.  The versatile wrap can be worn sharply folded or gently ruched.
