Vestiaire Collective Is Dropping Rare Archive Pieces from Raf Simons, Maison Margiela and More
In collaboration with Byronesque
Vintage has been all the rage during the past year, with old school pieces from brands like Louis Vuitton, Burberry and more becoming incredibly sought after. Online vintage platform Vestiaire Collective has teamed up with Byronesque to celebrate some of fashion’s most influential designers by opening a digital pop up that will offer 200 one-off pieces. The carefully curated edit rangest from pieces from the late ’70s, to contemporary pieces from 2006, and features story-telling garments that captured some of the most iconic moments in fashion.
Key items include Raf Simons‘ cut-out sweatshirt, Rei Kawakubo‘s iconic COMME des GARÇONS show robe from 1986, hand-painted Maison Margiela Tabi heels, to name a few. The pop-up will also include pieces from Jeremy Scott, Helmut Lang, Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier, with prices starting at €450 EUR (approximately $555 USD). “Vestiaire Collective’s existence questions today’s fast-fashion and unethical consumerism. With this unique collaboration with Byronesque, Vestiaire reinforces its desire to offer an authentic and alternative fashion experience, where each of us can choose who we want to be. Gill Linton from Byronesque dictates the rules in contemporary vintage fashion, she is as irreverent and relevant as the fashion rebels whose work we are celebrating with her,” said Vestiaire Head of Vintage Marie Blanchet about the collaboration.
Customers will be able to shop the exclusive edit over at vestiairecollective.com starting April 17. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the rare pieces that will be available for purchase in the gallery above.
