Best Bit? You're a lot less likely to bump into someone wearing the exact same look.
In some ways, vintage has always been the badge of honour worn by those ‘in the know’. And, full disclosure, truly great vintage steals were always the staple of those far cooler than me.
The at-times glib response of ‘oh, it’s vintage’ was often a calling card for the established members of fashion's in-crowd. An amazing Gucci blazer, sourced from some off the beaten track market in southern France or a divine leather handbag snapped up from a secret spot not listed in the city guide were always enviable, but essentially inaccessible.
When it comes to an online destination like Vestiaire Collective, it’s called 'time’s up' on the elitism of collecting pre-loved designer pieces, making them accessible to all with the click of a button. What’s more, the gamut of options available is democratising how we shop - whether you want to invest in a spendy piece, or nab a key item from just a few seasons ago at a killer price.
The result? Now we’re all in the know.
