For customers in the EU, prices for each items are shown as Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU). This means that when shopping from designers outside of the EU, import duties are excluded from the price you see online and you may have to pay import duties to receive your items. If you are shopping from designers within the EU, you will have to pay EU VAT and this is included within the prices you see online.

Please contact us if you have any other questions.
