eBay recouples with Love Island as pre-loved fashion partner

Online marketplace eBay is returning as the official sponsor for Love Island, encouraging shoppers to embrace pre-loved fashion.

Last year, eBay became Love Island’s first ever pre-loved fashion partner, with the aim of sparking a movement to inspire a more conscious way of shopping.

Celebrity fashion stylist Amy Bannerman will be returning to style series 9’s Islanders in pre-loved garments from the marketplace.

Alongside pre-loved clothes, for the first time, a selection of pre-loved, authenticated sneakers and items from its Imperfects range will also be heading to the villa wardrobe.

New research from ITV reveals 53% of Love Island viewers aware of the eBay partnership said they’d bought pre-loved in the past three months, more than double the amount for those who hadn’t watched or been aware of the partnership.

Since the partnership, eBay has also seen 1600% more searches for ‘pre-loved clothes’ and 24% more new circular fashion businesses have joined the online marketplace.
