Home › Delivery & Returns


All UK mainland orders are delivered by our courier service, which is estimated to be next working day delivery from dispatch. International orders are sent via Royal Mail, then passed to your national postal service - your tracking number can be used on both organisation's websites. Deliveries in Europe can be expected 2-6 working days from dispatch & deliveries for the rest of the world 5-7 working days from dispatch, but please note that this is subject to any international shipping delays which are out of our control. You can find out about our shipping costs here.

Please note that we are unfortunately unable to do anything to speed up processes such as customs checks. We will always be happy to look in to the whereabouts of your parcel, but unfortunately have no control over delivery processes after your order has left us. 


Some things to bear in mind:

  • Our office and warehouse are closed over weekends & public holidays.
  • We cannot take retail orders over the phone.
  • We unfortunately cannot offer a pick up service from our Head Office, as we currently have a 'no visitors' policy, for Health and Safety reasons.
  • We are unable to combine orders in order to reduce postage costs. Please ensure that you have placed all items required in your basket before completing your order.
  • We cannot post items to 'Packstations', 'PO Boxes', or 'Parcel lockers'. This is something that our current mail service is unable to offer. Please make sure your delivery address is an existing address where someone will be able to accept your item.
  • Your delivery address is taken directly from your order, so please make sure this is correct when checking out. We do not see your PayPal details at any stage of ordering, so please do not rely on this address.
  • If you do enter an incorrect address, please contact us ASAP, as we aim to post out orders within 24 hours and cannot amend the delivery address after dispatch. We cannot be held responsible for any incorrect addresses provided to us. Please double check that all your details have been filled out before completing your order.  


Missing orders

  • If you are UK Mainland based and have not received your order within 5 working days, or 15 working days for our international customers, please email shop@collectif.co.uk. Please include your order number, so that we can give you the tracking information for your parcel. Sometimes your order will be waiting at your local post office, with your 'while you were out' card not having reached you. Alternatively, sometimes custom checks can just take a little longer than usual.
  • Please Note: Royal Mail does not consider a package lost until 25 working days after the last possible date that your parcel could have arrived. We will not be able to claim for a lost packet until this time, at which point we will be able to refund or replace your order. We cannot be held responsible for packages lost or damaged by Royal Mail, but we will do all that we can to help you.
  • Unfortunately, any orders that have not been collected from depot/post office, or have not been able to reach their destination will be returned to our head office and you may be asked to cover postage costs to re-send your items.

  • We are not responsible for any returns sent back to us that are lost in the mail. We highly recommend using a tracked service, so that you can check the status of your return. We are not liable for any parcels lost before they reach us. We only become responsible for parcels sent back to us when they are received at our returns address. Until this point, your parcel is still in the care of the postal service provider. Should your parcel be lost en route, you will need to make a claim with your postal service provider.

Incorrect or faulty items

We do of course do our very best to ensure that every item we dispatch is correct & of the highest quality. However, mistakes unfortunately do happen. Should you receive an incorrect or faulty item, please email returns@collectif.co.uk with this information ASAP, so that we can authorise your return. We will send out your correct item as soon as we receive the incorrect item here.

  • When returning your incorrect or faulty item(s), if you email us a copy of your return postage receipt, we will be happy to refund this. Please send your item(s) using a 2nd Class Signed For service, or an equivalent service for international returns as we can only refund up to this amount.
  • Please note that your receipt is your proof of postage to keep safe, so you can claim with your postal provider should anything happen to the parcel on its way to us, and as such we do not recommend putting the receipt in the parcel.
  • We will only pay return postage for the weight of the incorrect or faulty item that you are sending back. If you choose to include any additional non-faulty items in your return, postage for these items will not be refunded.


Store returns

Our store returns policy differs slightly from to our website. Items bought from our stores can be returned to any UK store, but unfortunately not to our head office/online returns department. From the date of purchase, you have 28 days to exchange your item for another product, or for a credit note. Credit notes issued in store are valid for six months and can be spent in any UK store, but unfortunately cannot be used on our website. Unfortunately we do not offer any refunds unless there is a fault with your item.  For reasons of health and hygiene, we are unable to accept any hosiery, lingerie or pierced jewellery as returns.


If you’re keen to avoid having to return items to us in future and would like some sizing advice to help with this, please do feel free to drop an email to shop@collectif.co.uk. If you would like to include your measurements, item(s) you’re interested in and usual Collectif size, our customer services team will be happy to issue personally tailored advice on fit and sizing.
