Luxury resale site Vestiaire Collective has launched new vintage category to go live in conjunction with an editorial styled and conceptualized by Vestiaire Collective’s contributing fashion director Kate Foley and head of vintage Marie Blanchet, starring Chloë Sevigny.
Sevigny commented in a press release, “Vintage now, because it has always been vintage for me. When I grew up, most of my clothes were second-hand. My mother would always bring me thrifting. It was all I knew, what I was comfortable with. At a very early age, I became addicted to the thrill of the hunt; scouring through the thrift stores trying to find the perfect Laura Ashley dress or Ralph Lauren blouse.”
Foley said, “Chloë Sevigny is Vestiaire Collective’s vintage muse because she has always been such a huge champion of vintage and has a wonderful, unexpected way of wearing vintage that can only come from deep understanding and love of fashion from past decades. She is the ultimate vintage icon.”
Blanchet added, “Vintage is beyond fashion, the essence of second hand, iconic timeless rare luxury and designer pieces that are more than ever inspiring today’s fashion. Launching Vintage as a category means that Vestiaire Collective is affirming that one of a kind pieces produced before 2000 are the gems of second-hand luxury. ”
Vestiaire Collective customers can go to “SHOP CHLOË’S PICKS” on the website to find a curated selection of Sevigny’s personal vintage favorites that she chose, including a white shirt dress and electric blue legging shoes by Maison Martin Margiela, coat by Prada, blouse and skirt by Yves Saint Laurent, bag by Hermès, shoes by Church’s and accessories by Supreme. Prices in the collection range from $75 to $4,500 (U.S. dollars) per item.
