Where to find Tom Ford Gucci era pieces or unique Galliano bags at Dior? Celebrities like the Kardashian sisters, Emily Ratajkowski and the Hadid sisters know where: on luxury vintage websites. The market has boomed in recent years, especially with the resumption of the 1990s and 2000s trends and the demand for conscious consumption.
Besides, resale websites are a great way to revamp your wardrobe and the perfect option to buy great products and grow your collection. After all, selling luxury items that we no longer use can be an excellent way to circulate trends without having to take part in the fast fashion cycle. Below are the five most famous sites to find luxury items:
Launched in 2009, Vestiaire Collective is considered one of the largest retail sites in the world. It all started when bloggers started selling their branded pieces, and Fanny Muazan decided to make it into an incredible business idea.
The company currently has branches in 48 countries. According to the founder, it is possible to find pieces from almost every major brand, such as Chanel, Chloé, and Off-White. The selling process on the site is straightforward, and usually, the seller gets up to 80% of the value of the product. Today, the platform has 8 million customers around the world.
Created in 2013 as a community of sustainable fashion lovers, Grailed has since restructured and gained the male market. Today, the site is divided into three subcategories: Grailed, which buys and sells luxury goods, Hype, which focuses on street, and Core, which has mass and vintage markets. In 2017 the company launched the women’s platform, Heroine, which already has striking pieces like Dior coats of the Galliano era.
With a focus on luxury handbags, at Rebag, you will find your favorite models of designer brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. The biggest problem with this site is that most parts are sold 50% cheaper, only selected handbags like Birkins and some collaborations you can sell at the ideal price. However, the company has a big differential, it takes care of the entire sale process, so you don’t have to worry about that. If you are going to Miami, Rebag has a store there.
With a wide range of options, at Tradesy you can find everything from Alexander McQueen pieces to Zara dresses, but the widest range is in luxury handbags. On the site, you will find brands like Louis Vuitton, Celine, Gucci, and Saint Laurent.
For sellers, this platform provides exciting services such as Tradesy Shipping Kit that allows you to ship goods without leaving home, and the company is responsible for the entire process.
With three physical stores in New York and Los Angeles, The RealReal has it all and will become a close friend to any fashionista. On the site, you will find women’s and men’s clothing, jewelry, watches, art, decoration and children’s things, all passed by a rigorous team of authenticators who guarantee the originality of all the pieces.
