I am loving the concept of Parisian based Vestiaire Collective who resell used and unwanted designer clothes, shoes and accessories at a discounted price. Heavily scrutinised by experts the team behind the site choose only the most exclusive labels to sell online and guarantee against fake designer goods.
According to the Telegraph
‘some items sell within 20 seconds of appearing on the site, the second hand market is the tip of the iceberg.’
It shows that quality is the key to vintage, people are still label obsessed, but at least it is a sustainable way to shop and help stop mass consumerism.Goods are valued and prized and consumers are clamouring for cut price designer goods so for a bit of Parisian based chic check Vestiaire out!
“Cult Parisian online fashion community, Vestiaire Collective, has just launched in the UK and we’re mega excited […] we’ve always wanted to emulate chic Parisian style and snap up designer items at affordable prices, and here’s our chance!” Cosmopolitan UK, March 2012
