I don't even remember what brand it was....So, I phoned the French Customs and they told me the Customs Duties (3.8%) would be calculated on the price of the bag+ the shipping....and then....I would have had to pay 19.6% French VAT.....on the price of the bag.
The Customs lady explained that if it's the US Postal Service which sends the parcel....the French Customs don't always check as there are so many parcels sent this way but if it's UPS, or Fedex or DHL....it's another story...we have to pay....
This is to deter us from buying oustide EU....

thank you. Yeah, is better not buying outside EU. But there is sites like Shopbop who ask you the price of the duty (I payed 20 $ for a par of boots) which is refunded if the parcel is not checked at the Customs...And the shipping (with UPS) is free for orders of more of 100$...It's cool!
With another website, I had to pay 36 euros of duty and customs for a 90$ coat!

I think Farfetch is for us Europeans....and there shouldn't be any Customs Duties or French VAT. If the shop is in Italy for example, the Italian VAT is already included in the price.
Same with Mytheresa which is in Germany.

I think farfetch is based out of the US in LA, but I could be wrong.
