Now that there has been a push to combat fast fashion and look towards more sustainable options, many are turning to vintage shops. With the rise of social media, Instagram shops, and apps, shopping vintage is more accessible.
The one online vintage option is an app called Vestiaire Collective. An easy and useful app when searching for great deals on designer shoes, bags, accessories, and clothes. Vestiaire Collective authenticates every piece put on the site, making shopping for pre-owned luxury safer and worry-free. Vestiaire makes it possible to own unique pieces that would be lost in the world if not for reselling. They also sell “unsigned” or unbranded brands that are usually from Italy and France that are of amazing quality and lower price point than most luxury pieces.
IRVRSBL is another amazing option for all things pre owned luxury. Most items priced around $400, with bags and shoes being their main focus. Selling priceless pieces such as collectable FENDI Baguettes, like this one shown, and the iconic Balenciaga Motorcycle bag.
What Goes Around Comes Around is a online shop with a few locations scattered across New York, such as in SoHo and Tribeca, that sells the rare of the rarest pieces. With the best collection of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Hermes. This shop has quickly risen in ranks of vintage shops with almost every celebrity working with them to create their selection of the perfect vintage pieces. Even if not to shop, visiting their dreamy stores should be on every vintage lovers bucket list.
Why not shop vintage and buy the most unique pieces? With all different types of platform to buy on with all different price points, shopping vintage is easier than driving to your local mall. My advice? Go out there and buy your dream bag.
