“The introduction of Switch Select gets us one step closer to our goal of redefining the way people experience luxury,” said Adriel Darvish, Switch’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Our goal is a world where luxury is more than just something you desire to buy, but rather an experience you can enjoy without boundaries.”

Switch, whose early investors include Human Capital, Maveron, Soma Ventures, and the founders of Sweetgreen and Tinder, had previously focused on jewelry. Members will still be able to purchase luxury designer jewellery through its Core memberships, which start at $45 per month.

Liana Kadisha Cohn, President and Co-Founder of Switch, added “Switch’s expansion into handbags has been in the works since its inception. As we strive to become the leading luxury accessory rental platform, this is a natural extension of our offering.”

Switch (joinswitch.com) launched a Select waitlist in June, which has already received thousands of sign-ups. In order to keep up with demand, the company will admit new Select members on a rolling basis.
