The Handbag Rental Site You Need To Know About

Renting those lusted-after fashion pieces is one of the most sustainable ways to up your style game, and COCOON is the platform to have on your radar. Offering one of the best selections of designer bags we’ve seen, from classic Chanel to the latest Loewe, they can all be yours for a flat monthly fee. Here’s what you need to know about the clever subscription service…
Jessica Skye for COCOON


The Concept

COCOON is a monthly subscription service giving you access to a collection of seriously good designer handbags. There are three membership plans which unlock access to different bags in the collection – but whichever you go for, you’ll end up with something fabulous on your arm.

The Benefits

Naturally there’s the cost – most of the bags on the site would sell for well over £1,000. Then there’s the sustainability angle: why buy new when you could borrow instead? Plus, it gives you the option to try something new, instead of committing to a single designer bag to fit all your needs. 

The Bags

The roster is superb – there’s everything from this year’s in-demand Bottega clutches and Intrecciato styles, to cult classics like Chanel’s 2.55 and Saint Laurent’s shopper totes. That means, whether you’re after a professional piece for an interview or a statement design for a night out, there’s something for everyone.

The Membership

There are three different membership plans available:

Light Membership, £49/month – enjoy full access to the contemporary range, including the latest cult styles and special vintage bags.

Premium Membership, £79/month – this provides access to everyday essentials and the season’s must-have It-bags.

Deluxe Membership, £99/month – gives you exclusive access to COCOON's full collection – that means coveted hero styles, limited edition designs and iconic vintage bags.

The Process

Once your membership has been approved, you can get your chosen bag on your arm the next day... plus, for an extra £29, enjoy a second bag for a week with a multi-bag pass.

The hero pieces you can rent now…

Burgundy Large Pouch, Bottega Veneta

This has been the fashion girl’s bag of choice for months. We love the deep burgundy shade – perfect with berry hues and camel colours for autumn, and darker blacks and browns come winter. Pair with killer heels and a wrap coat for a glamorous look.

Vintage Quilted Single Flap Shoulder Bag, Chanel

Few things are chicer than a Chanel vintage bag. This classic style offers the perfect injection of polish, day or night, while gold details add a little drama.

Balloon Small Bucket Bag, Loewe

Loewe bags have enjoyed a renaissance of late, and this bucket style is the perfect everyday piece. Not so big that you lose all your belongings, not too tiny so it still fits the essentials, its warm caramel finish makes it the ideal choice for autumn.

'C' Clutch With Chain, Chloé

Chloé can do no wrong when it comes to stylish bags, with every style on their roster in the past decade becoming an instant hit. This sleek clutch has just the right amount of the brand's signature directional aesthetic whilst still being the perfect everyday piece.

Mia Large Leather Tote Bag, Wandler

This Wandler bag has been on our wish list for ages – another burgundy hero, it’s a grown-up, everyday piece that's sure to work your wardrobe harder. Make use of the long strap or carry it with the top-handle for a street style-worthy finish.
