Frédérick Mannella / Founder and President Frederick spent years travelling the world sourcing pre-owned luxury products before founding LXR & Co. in 2012. He had a vision to change how people shopped vintage - taking away the headache of determining authenticity, fair price and condition for discerning buyers. After starting as a by appointment retailer in 2010, Fred realized the potential of the pre-owned luxury market and developed partnerships with large retailers around the world to distribute his products. It was his ambition to build the first premium pre-owned luxury shopping destination that pushed him to launch LXR & Co. Fred remains very close to the products and continues to oversee purchasing and quality control management in addition to his role as president.
